Queen Elizabeth flies to Sandringham after COVID disrupted Christmas plan


LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s Queen Elizabeth flew by helicopter to her Sandringham property in East England on Sunday after delaying her conventional Christmas journey for a month due to COVID-19, a Buckingham Palace supply stated.

The queen flew from Windsor Castle to the residence in Norfolk, the place she had spent Christmas with members of her household for many years earlier than the pandemic struck in 2020.

The 95-year-old monarch has been at Windsor Castle to the west of London for many of the pandemic.

She will rejoice her Platinum Jubilee, marking 70 years on the throne, this 12 months.
