Queen and Prince Philip ‘home alone’ as hopes for Royal Family Christmas reunion crushed

Queen and Philip will be ‘home alone’ for Christmas says expert

The Royal Family’s Christmas plans have been curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Royal expert Roya Nikkhah told ITV’s Lorraine programme that Queen Elizabeth II will be very saddened by the fact she will be separated from her family on Christmas day. 

Mr Nikkhah said: “This year for the first time since 1988 the Queen is going be at Windsor Castle, home alone with Philip.

“This is where she has been isolating for most of the lockdowns.

“The Royal Family is all over the place. There was some hope that Charles and Camilla would be able to visit her at some point during the day.

“They are in Gloucestershire for Christmas but now with the Tier 4 restrictions, it is unlikely they will be able to do that.

“The Cambridges are up in Norfolk, so members of the royal family are separated for the first time in many years.

“That will be very sad for the Queen.”

Earlier this week it was revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas presents for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in danger of not reaching them in time following the outbreak of a new variant of coronavirus in England.

Prince William and Kate reportedly mailed their gifts to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who are spending Christmas in California.
