The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh spend Christmas at Windsor Castle The queen

The royal family, along with so many other families across the state, was torn apart by levels and restrictions on Christmas.

The Queen (94) and the Duke of Edinburgh (99) spent the day privately at Windsor Castle, where they protected during a lockout during a coronavirus pandemic.

It was the first time in more than 30 years that the monarch was not with his family on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, where the royal people traditionally walk to St. Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas morning, and meet members of the public waiting outside to look.

This year it was realized that the Queen, a Christian and supreme governor of the Church of England, attended a private service on Christmas in the chapel inside Windsor Castle to avoid gathering a large crowd of benefactors.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent the holiday season at Anmer Hall, their home in Norfolk, with their three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five and Prince Louis, two.

The couple posted on Twitter pictures of people working during the festive season, including social workers caring for the vulnerable and volunteers feeding the poor.

In the accompanying message of thanks, they wrote: “This Christmas we think of those who spend today alone, those who mourn the loss of a loved one and those at the front who still gather people the energy to put their lives on hold to take care of the rest of us. “

William and Kate added, “Wishing you a Merry Christmas this year doesn’t seem good, so instead we want a better 2021. There’s support available for those struggling today.” They labeled a number of mental health charities that opened on December 25th. for those in need of support, including the Mind, the Samaritans, and Peace (Campaign Against a Poor Life).

The Duke, who contracted Covid-19 in April but did not make it public at the time, and the Duchess, had previously stressed that it was more important for workers at the front to receive mental health support.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were in Highgrove, their home in Gloucestershire. The couple posted their photo with sticks in hand in their Scottish retreat to Birkhall, which was taken during the fall.

Charles and Camilla, who were dressed casually, reportedly wanted a walker around the village near their home in Aberdeenshire.
