Christmas might look a little different for families across the country this year – and the Royal Family is no different.

Despite the introduction of a ‘Christmas bubble’ – where a maximum of three households can meet and mix indoors for five days between December 23 and 27 – many families and friends will still not get to see each other.

With such a large family of their own, where will the Royal Family spend Christmas 2020?

Where do the royals spend Christmas?


The Royal Family traditionally spend Christmas and New Year at Sandringham House.

Sandringham is the Queen’s country estate based in Norfolk.

They’ve been spending Christmas there since the late 1980s, starting the tradition when Windsor Castle was being rewired in 1988.


The Royals usually gather at Sandringham, and attend church on Christmas Day.


The Queen and other members of The Royal Family usually attend the morning church service on Christmas Day at St Mary Magdalene, Sandringham.

This is a country church with deep connections to the family, as Queen Victoria, the Queen’s Great-Great-Grandmother visited the church.

Where will the Royal Family spend this Christmas?


Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Royal Family will spend Christmas apart this year.

The Queen, 94, and husband Prince Philip, 99, will spend Christmas at Windsor Castle, with a support bubble of staff.

Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, revealed this week on their tour of the country where they thanked front-line services for their work that their Christmas plans haven’t been finalised.

The Duke of Cambridge told a group of students: ‘It is so difficult, we are still trying to make plans. It’s difficult to know what to do for the best.’


Charles and Camilla will likely be spending Christmas away from the family, too.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles and Camilla will spend Christmas alone at Highgrove, according to the Daily Mail.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are still in California, where they will spend their first Christmas since moving over.

Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson are thought to be spending Christmas with Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank, and Princess Beatrice and her new husband Edo Mapelli Mozzi.

Princess Anne and Prince Edward will spend their Christmases with their respective families.
