For the first time in 30 years, Queen Elizabeth II will spend Christmas in Windsor
For the first time in more than 30 years, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, will spend Christmas in peace at Windsor Castle on the outskirts of London.
"After considering all the proper advice, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have decided to spend Christmas in peace in Windsor this year," a Buckingham Palace spokesman said in a statement.
Traditionally, the royal couple spent the holiday season at their residence in Sandringham, Norfolk, in the company of other members of the royal family.
While allowing celebrations and family reunions for up to three families for five days from Dec. 23-27, Buckingham Palace has not clarified whether the rest of the royal family, including children, will travel to Windsor.
