Concerns about the monarch’s health have risen recently after several events were cancelled, including for the first time in 22 years to miss the Remembrance Sunday ceremony due to a back injury.
According to reports, the Queen has told her family that she is feeling much better and wants to host the rest of the royal family this Christmas. Image: Last Christmas she was seen in public in 2019
She had earlier spent a night in the hospital for an unconfirmed condition, after which doctors told her to take rest at home.
But Prime Minister Boris Johnson then claimed she was ‘very good’ when he saw her in Windsor a few days later.
Now sources close to the Queen have insisted she is on recovery and plans to visit her Norfolk estate on or around Friday, 17 December, according to the Mirror.
However, it will be emotional for a few days, as it will be her first Christmas since the death of her husband, Prince Philip.
While a traditional train ride from London to King’s Lynn is not off the tables, it is expected that she will instead take a helicopter from Windsor – a journey that takes about 50 minutes.
Her guests this festive season are said to include Charles and Camilla as well as William, Kate and their three children.
Other royals, including Prince Edward, Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, have also been invited along with their respective partners and children.

A source told the newspaper: ‘The Queen has told everyone she is feeling better of late and is looking forward to welcoming them over for Christmas.
‘Like many other families, this will be the first time Her Majesty can gather with her extended family after being separated for so long due to the coronavirus pandemic.’
