Doctors cleared the Queen to make a short helicopter trip to Sandringham, her beloved residence in Norfolk, it has been reported. This marks the first trip outside of Windsor Her Majesty has taken since spending a night at King Edward VII Hospital in London. 

The Queen was “delighted” to have been given the all clear and be able to go to Sandringham, according to a royal source.

They told the Daily Mirror: “The Queen had been hoping she would still be able to spend the weekend at Sandringham and was delighted her doctors gave her the all clear to travel.

“Her Majesty is very much looking forward to hosting her family at her Norfolk home for the Christmas holiday and there is much preparation to be done in time to accommodate everyone who has been invited.

“The Queen has many happy memories of being at Sandringham with the family over Christmas and was in the firm belief that she was far better off being there in person to oversee everything as much as possible. 

“But she travelled on the understanding with her doctors that she continues to rest as advised.” 

The sovereign is reportedly visiting Sandringham for the first time in months to make plans ahead of Christmas.

Last month, it was claimed the Queen is “totally committed” to hosting a traditional feast in Norfolk with her extended family after being forced to skip it last year due to the raging coronavirus pandemic.

A palace insider told the Mirror: “This year, more than ever, it is incredibly important to Her Majesty to be surrounded by her loved ones.

“The Queen is totally committed to hosting everyone as she hopes to make it back to full health in the coming weeks.

“Her Majesty is resting under doctors’ orders with the intention of being able to fully enjoy the company of her extended family over the holiday period.

“After being forced to cancel a host of engagements, the family get-together will be the perfect tonic.”

This coming festivities will mark the Queen’s first Christmas without Prince Philip, who died at Windsor Castle on April 9.

Last year, the royal couple spend the winter holidays alone at their residence in Berkshire.
