Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas decorations will remain until February – for a touching reason
Last Christmas was a little different than usual for the British Royals. Instead of traditionally gathering at Sandringham with the whole family, Queen Elizabeth stayed at Windsor Castle*. Due to the corona pandemic, the big gathering was canceled. Among other things, the regent was able to look forward to visits from her sons Prince Charles* (73) and Prince Edward* (57).
However, a moment of shock overshadowed the holidays: an armed intruder had gained access to the Windsor property*. Fortunately, the man was arrested before he could enter the castle premises. In addition, the death of Prince Philip * (99, † 2021) clouded the mood. For the first time in over 70 years, the monarch had to celebrate Christmas without her husband.
Against all odds, however, Queen Elizabeth* made the most of the party. She can also enjoy her impressive Christmas decorations for a few more weeks. The royals don’t decorate until February.
