Queen Elizabeth May Change Annual Christmas Plans Amid Rising COVID-19 Cases

The Queen typically stays at her estate in Norfolk from late December to a few days after February 6, which is when she became queen after the death of her father nearly 70 years ago.

However, with the new coronavirus variant Omicron surging, she is reportedly contemplating cancelling her annual trip. If she does decide to go, the tradition of allowing the public in to watch the family walk to church will be called off.

This will be Elizabeth‘s first holiday season without her husband Prince Philip, who died in April.

The outlet adds that if she remains in Windsor, members of the family would be available to visit with her so she wouldn’t be alone on the holiday.

She’s said to be taking advice from her private secretaries, who are communicating with the U.K. government about the rise in cases and restrictions that could be implemented. It’s expected that she’ll make the announcement in the next couple of days.

Last week, it was announced that the Queen had already cancelled one holiday event due to rising COVID-19 cases.
