Prince George and his siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are all said to have been “missing the Queen” as we approach the end of lockdown.
- Prince George and his siblings have been unable to see their great-grandmother the Queen throughout England's second lockdown.
- A source has claimed that the children "miss" the Queen.
- In other Royal News, Sophie, Countess of Wessex shares rare personal tweet to highlight important cause close to her heart.
A source has claimed that the three young children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had been missing their great-grandmother.
It seems they too are finding the separation difficult like so many other children across the country in these challenging times.
Where have the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge gone into lockdown?
Whilst Prince George and his siblings accompanied their parents to their family’s countryside home in Norfolk during the nationwide lockdown, things have been different this time around.
There was much speculation whether the royal couple would once more return to Anmer Hall. But instead they made the decision to remain at Kensington Palace. Prince George and Princess Charlotte have continued going to school as usual, like most pupils across the country.
Where have the Queen and Prince Philip gone into lockdown?
In contrast, the children’s great-grandparents the Queen and Prince Philip headed out of London for lockdown. The monarch and her husband have spent the past three weeks at their Berkshire residence, Windsor Castle.
At more than 20 miles outside the capital, it could be that the monarch and her husband who are both considered to be in the “at risk” category due to their age, felt that Windsor Castle was a safe haven at this time.
How has lockdown affected the Queen’s great-grandchildren?
A source has spoken out about how this new separation has affected Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. This week they told People magazine that Prince William and Duchess Catherine were “waiting to hear” about how restrictions would impact Christmas before Prime Minister Boris Johnson made his announcement.
They added that: “the children miss their great-granny, but it’s the same rules for them as everyone.”
The Queen is famously very fond of her great-grandchildren, who recently helped her commemorate her and Prince Philip’s 73rd wedding anniversary with a touching homemade card.
Will the Royal Family be reunited at Christmas?
It remains to be seen whether Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis will be able to reunite with the Queen this Christmas.
The new announcement has decreed that people across England will be allowed to celebrate indoors, with up to three households mixing between December 23-27. There will be a “Christmas bubble” arrangement in place.
Who exactly the Queen and Prince Philip will choose to be in a bubble with has yet to be decided. It is traditional at Christmas for the Cambridges and other members of the Royal Family to join the monarch at Sandringham for the festivities.
This year the celebrations will certainly be different. It may be that certain social distancing precautions will be put in place if the young family do join the Queen, as in the summer when they visited the monarch at Balmoral Castle.
Whatever happens, this Christmas will certainly be a very different one for us all.
