British Queen Elizabeth II has reportedly canceled the royal family 2021 Christmas party.

According to the news report, the Queen was looking forward to hosting a regular Christmas party this year, due to dine with the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall along with other members of the royal family at Windsor Castle, but the new variant disrupted celebrations.

This year’s Christmas festive is to be the Queen’s first Christmas without her husband Prince Philip.

However, according to The Sun, a small group of family members are expected to still join the Queen at Sandringham but are yet to be confirmed. Buckingham Palace said in a statement that she’d made the decision not to attend with “great regret” and disappointment.

Due to pandemic restrictions last year, Christmas was celebrated quietly by the Queen and Prince Philip together.
