The Queen is preparing to host her first Christmas at Sandringham since Prince Philip died after reportedly assuring relatives she is feeling ‘far better’.

The monarch, 95, is ‘very much looking forward’ to the festive family feast at her estate in Norfolk, according to royal sources.

The Queen pulled out of a string of events on doctors’ orders, including laying a wreath at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday, after straining her back.

But she is said to have insisted she is feeling well enough to host Christmas, the first without husband-of-73-years, Prince Philip, following his death in April this year.

The Queen, due to mark the 70th anniversary of her reign in Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year, will be joined by Prince Charles and wife Camilla, and Prince William, Kate and their children, George, Charlotte and Louis.  

The monarch is likely to take a 50-minute helicopter journey to Sandringham around Friday, December 17.

A royal source told the Mirror: ‘The Queen has told everyone she is feeling far better of late and is very much looking forward to welcoming them for Christmas.

‘Like other families, this will be the first time Her Majesty can gather with her extended family after being kept apart for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic.’
