London, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 1st Dec, 2020 ) :Queen Elizabeth II, who has spent much of the coronavirus outbreak in self-isolation because of her age, will forego her traditional family Christmas, the royal household said on Tuesday.
The 94-year-old monarch and her husband Prince Philip normally spend the festive season at her Sandringham estate in eastern England with other members of the family.
"Having considered all the appropriate advice, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor," the royal household said, referring to a castle west of London.
Their eldest son Prince Charles and his son Prince William have both been isolating after showing mild Covid symptoms.
She has also made a video-conference call to carers. Her weekly meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been conducted by telephone.
Her first public appearance outside one of her homes -- where she has a reduced household staff known as "HMS Bubble" -- was on October 16, when she visited the Porton Down research laboratory with grandson William.
She has also spent time at Balmoral, northeast Scotland, and Sandringham.
