This year has been the year of change and adaptation for all. Due to the still-ongoing global pandemic, lots of events and gatherings have either been cancelled completely or underwent all kinds of changes. And the holiday season 2020 and the Queen’s Christmas Bubble will be no different.
The Queen’s Christmas Bubble, every year the Queen gathers her family at Sandringham, which typically involved all the Majesty’s kids and grandkids gathering for a long celebration, with a couple of days filled with outfit changes, fancy walks, huge feasts and hundred-year-old traditions.
But this year things will be a bit different. The Queen will have to choose only a few members of her family to spend the holidays with her in a kind of “bubble”-and it seems that Prince William and Kate won’t be making the list this year due to their three children. Due to the two eldest attending school, they pose a health risk, however small it might seem, the monarch cant allows any exceptions.
A source told the Daily Telegraph: “They will sort it out between them; it will be about what’s practical,” adding that the risk of exposing the Queen to school-age children is “clearly” being taken into consideration.
Either way, this Christmas is set to be at least filled with some more unusual happenings, as previous reports by The Express’ royal correspondent Richard Palmer claim that there is “staff revolt over attempts to make them isolate from their families.” This did not sit well with the Queen, who was apparently furious when she found out that there were workers refusing to isolate in order to “be able to join a small bubble of close aides serving the monarch over Christmas.”
Wow, not letting employees go home to their family’s for the holidays, kind of reminds me a certain Christmas-hater.
