Charles and Camilla will join Queen for Christmas Day

Clarence House confirmed Thursday that Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be among the royals who will join the Queen at Windsor Castle for Christmas.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall will be with the queen for Christmas, Clarence House said.

This came after Buckingham Palace announced that the Queen had canceled the celebration of Christmas in Handspring, Norfolk, amid fears of an increase in the number of Omicron variants.

Instead, she will spend the day at Windsor, as she did last year. The palace said that this is a personal decision and “reflects a cautious approach.” It has not yet been confirmed where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will spend Christmas.

“The Wessexes, Cambridges and Yorkies are expected to join,” said the senior royal expert. The announcement came the day after it became known that the husband of Princess Anne, the Queen’s daughter, had been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

According to the report, Anne is isolating herself and will not be able to join her mother for Christmas.

In the fall, the Queen had to abandon a number of public events, including the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow and Sunday Memorial Service, due to health concerns.

But the latest change in plan comes in response to the proliferation of a highly mutated new variant – amid calls for people to limit contact during the Christmas season.

This would mean the absence of her traditional family gatherings at her estate in Norfolk and her attendance at Christmas morning church service at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.

On Christmas Day, the Queen will be joined by Prince Charles and Camilla at Windsor Castle, a boost for the monarch after Princess Anne surrendered. Most likely, they will be joined by Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah, the Duchess of York, as well as their two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
