William and Kate 'thinking of' those facing 'different' Christmas this year

William and Kate have sent well wishes to those having a ‘different’ Christmas this year, such as having to isolate away from their loves ones.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said they recognised the date this year is ‘different to what so many of us had planned’ following a spike in Covid cases in recent weeks.

In a tweet, the couple said: ‘This Christmas will be different to what so many of us had planned. From those who are alone or having to isolate away from loved ones, to the incredible people supporting our NHS and caring for those most in need – we are thinking of you. W & C.’

The couple themselves have had to change their plans for the festive season this year, after the Queen decided to stay at Windsor rather than travel to Sandringham for a big family Christmas as she usually does.

A spokesperson from Kensington Palace on Thursday said the duke and duchess will spend Christmas in Norfolk and will be joined by some members of the Middleton family.

The Queen is being joined by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall for her first Christmas without her late husband the Duke of Edinburgh.

Sources said this year’s message will be a ‘particularly personal’ tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh.

Her Majesty was married to Prince Philip for nearly 74 years before his death in April aged 99.
