Kate Middleton and Prince William's Kids "Miss Their Great-Granny" as Christmas Plans Get Put on Hold

From Cosmopolitan

  • The royals might not head to Sandringham at all for Christmas due to isolation measures.

  • Prince William and Kate Middleton are waiting to hear about government guidelines and the "children miss their great-granny."

When it comes to Christmas, the royal family is typically pretty predictable: they all head to Sandringham together, chill out at a castle, and go on an annual Christmas walk to say hi to their fans. But this year is going to look a little (er, a lot) different due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

According to a source who spoke to People, the Queen and Prince Philip are currently in isolation at Windsor Castle and TBD on whether they'll even head to the Sandringham Estate at all.

Meanwhile, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be spending Christmas in Los Angeles where they're currently living with their young son Archie. Oh, and William and Kate are "are waiting to hear [about government guidelines] just like everyone else" and while "The children miss their great-granny" it's "the same rules for them as everyone."

Obviously, the entire family potentially being apart for the holidays is a break from the norm—but apparently the Queen might be relieved due to how intense this year has been. "She might want a rest—you never know," a former staffer tells People. "She might be happier for a quieter household this year."
