Queen Elizabeth And Her Corgi Get The Royal Treatment In Sandringham
On Thursday, Queen Elizabeth took a helicopter to her beloved Sandringham estate for the long holiday weekend. However, this is not all about rest and relaxation. She has Christmas festivities to plan. Yet, she took some time away for a frivolous ride.
Here are the details.
The Queen Of England Enjoys A Drive In The Country
After spending the latter half of October under the weather, Queen Elizabeth II was seen on Friday being driven around the grounds of Sandringham, her estate near Norfolk. According to the Daily Mail, the Monarch sat in the passenger seat of a Range Rover, while being driven around the extensive grounds.
Wearing a headscarf, she looked perky and alert, which should make everyone feel more secure that she is doing much better. Even one of her corgi dogs went out for a ride, being driven in a separate Land Rover. The pup could be seen peering out the back window.
This is a huge change from a week ago, where the Queen was forced to cancel attending the COP2 climate change conference in Glasgow. Instead, she sent a video, where she talked about climate change and discussed how this was a passion of her late husband, Prince Philip.
Not long before this, she was in hospital one evening. There, she took some tests.
The Queen Is Preparing For Christmas At Sandringham
Why is she in Norfolk and not hanging out in the comforts of Windsor Castle? It appears Her Majesty has Christmas on her mind. According to a source who spoke to The Mirror, “Her Majesty is very much looking forward to hosting her family at her Norfolk home for the Christmas holiday and there is much preparation to be done in time to accommodate everyone who has been invited.”
What about her top-notch staff? Royal watchers could correctly assume that the Queen of England has the best people in charge. But, it sounds like since the royals did not get together last Christmas, due to the worldwide pandemic, she wants to make sure everything is special. In addition, this is the first Christmas without her beloved Prince Philip.
The insider shared that “The Queen has many happy memories of being at Sandringham with the family over Christmas and was in the firm belief that she was far better off being there in person to oversee everything as much as possible.”
The royals enjoy exchanging gag gifts, and on Christmas morning, they go to St. Magdalene Church.
While it seems rather early for the Queen to be at Sandringham, she traditionally went to this special place every year, around Halloween. She and her “dear husband” would spend time at Wood Farm, which is part of the estate there.
Instead, she is alone, with at least one of her pups. Of course, Sunday is Remembrance Day. However, the Queen has no plans for any public outings, as her doctors have asked her to take in easy for about two weeks.
