Princess Anne has to be quarantined: her husband has Corona

Bad news for Queen Elizabeth, 95, and the rest of the royal family: Sir Timothy Laurence, 66, husband of Princess Anne, 71, tested positive for the coronavirus, according to the Daily Mail. How exactly he is is not known. But both are said to be currently in quarantine at the couple’s country estate, Gatcombe Park.

The illness of Sir Timothy Laurence also means that neither he nor Princess Anne can travel to the Queen at Windsor Castle to keep her company at Christmas. Contrary to the tradition of spending Christmas with the whole family in Sandringham, the Queen has to do without big celebrations for the second year in a row because of the pandemic. Only close relatives should come to Windsor to celebrate the festival in small groups.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan are getting involved in their new home, Montecito

Words of praise for Prince Harry, 37, and Duchess Meghan, 40, in public have become rare. Whether royal experts or your own family members – one usually hears rather critical voices about the couple who are now looking for happiness in the USA. But it seems that Harry and Meghan will at least gain sympathy in their new home, Montecito, California.

The two are also getting more and more involved in the community of the city of almost 9,000 inhabitants, as the head of the non-profit organization “Montecito Association” reports on “Good Morning Britain”. “They reached out to us last year and we helped them with some of the problems they had moving in and they said how can we get involved?” Says Sharon Byrne enthusiastically. “They came to the parade on July 4th and no one knew it was them and they waved to everyone and then they called me and said we’d really love to help. So I said our Christmas parade is coming up, how about it it with that and so they did it. “

Queen Elizabeth does not celebrate Christmas in Sandringham

After Queen Elizabeth, 95, canceled the traditional Christmas dinner with the family last week, according to British media reports, “with regret” and as a “precautionary measure”, there is now more sad news about Christmas for the British royals: Like Royal Editor Emily Nash announced via Twitter that the Queen will not celebrate Christmas as planned in Sandringham but at Windsor Castle. This is a personal decision by the Queen.

Duchess Camilla reveals secrets of Windsor Castle

In the coming year, Duchess Camilla, 74, will present the “Treasures of Windsor Castle” to the public for the first time in a multi-part Instagram series with the help of knowledgeable experts. “Noteworthy objects” are being scrutinized, according to an announcement on the official channel of her virtual “Reading Room”, which she launched in 2020 for literature enthusiasts at the beginning of the pandemic.

A first trailer shows how Camilla looks at a 580-year-old book up close – but without the white protective gloves that are often seen when antiquities are examined more closely. For this supposed faux pas, however, there is an immediate explanation: “You ask about white gloves?” Says the comment on the video. “Many scholars and academics today believe that having clean hands is the best thing to do when handling valuable books, as cloth or latex gloves can make the wearer clumsy.” So Camilla did everything right.

Queen Elizabeth is expected to cancel traditional family walk

A grueling and sad year lies behind Queen Elizabeth, 95, and a conciliatory end seems further and further afield. Now the monarch will probably not only have to cancel her traditional pre-Christmas lunch with the family, but also the family walk on December 25th to the Christmas service in St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.

The Queen and her advisors fear that the omicron variant of the coronavirus, which is spreading at breakneck speed in Great Britain, could spread through the public appearance of the family among thousands of onlookers, who appear every year, and also among the royals themselves. Although the royal estate Sandringham will not be completely cordoned off, as the “Mirror” reports, the famous footpath to the church is expected to be fenced off.

On December 25, 2019, Prince Charles, Duchess Catherine, Prince William and Co. came together for the last time for the traditional Christmas walk.
