The Queen canceled her family’s Christmas party due to Covid fears.
The Queen said it was “sorry” that the annual royal gathering would not go as planned – but it was the “right thing to do” as the Omicron variant raged across the UK.
The decision was described as “a precautionary measure” as it was thought the festive lunch would “put too many people at risk of Christmas arrangements if it had taken place before that”.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment further as it was a “private family event”.
This will be the Queen’s first Christmas in 73 years without her husband Prince Philip, who died aged 99 in April.
