The Queen has cancelled her traditional Christmas in Sandringham in Norfolk, amid concerns about the rising levels of the Omicron variant.

Instead she will stay in Windsor where she will be joined by members of the Royal Family.

Buckingham Palace aides described it as a personal decision and “reflects a precautionary approach”.

It is the second year the pandemic has caused the cancellation of the Queen’s Christmas trip to Sandringham.

Last week the Queen announced that she would not be going ahead with her family pre-Christmas lunch.

That was also in response to worries about the spread of the new Covid variant.

It is not known which members of her family will be visiting her at Windsor for Christmas, but a Buckingham Palace spokesman said that “all appropriate guidelines” would be followed.

It is understood that Downing Street was informed of the decision, but was not involved in making the decision.
