    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will not be returning to the UK for Christmas despite being invited to join the rest of the royal family at Sandringham, sources have claimed.  The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently living in a $14million mansion in California, are also expected to miss the Queen's annual Christmas lunch for her extended family, which is usually held at Buckingham Palace.  The lunch is expected to be held at Windsor Castle this year, as the Queen continues to recuperate from a bad back which forced her to miss the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.  It's thought that Harry and Meghan turned down the invite because they want to avoid the media coverage that would follow a visit to the UK.  A royal source told Page Six: 'There's a lot that goes into the logistics and the planning of the family Christmas, so of course, staff know that Harry and Meghan are not coming. If they were, they would have communicated it to their family by now.

    The British royal family is being grounded on Christmas, thanks to the coronavirus. The royals will be skipping their traditional Christmas Day service at St. Mary Magdalene Church due to a resurgence of the global pandemic, according to a report. It will be the first time in more than three decades that Queen Elizabeth II and her family will skip the service, The Sun reported. “Members of the Royal Family and media are advised there will be no organised royal event at Sandringham this year,” Norfolk Police said in a statement, the newspaper said. “Members of the Royal Family will not be attending the usual Christmas Day service.” The decision stems from concerns over the possible spread of the coronavirus, not just among the royals, but the thousands of loyal Brits who typically pack a paddock next to the 18th Century church, which is on the queen’s Sandringham estate. Last year, Prince George and his sister, Prince Charlotte, even mingled with the crowd. This year, the queen, 94, and her husband, Prince Philip, 99, will spend...

    In the final part of our serialisation of his sensational new book, distinguished royal historian Robert Lacey charts the eventful courtship of William and Kate, from their happy university days to their traumatic break-up while she was working for Jigsaw — and how William finally decided he needed Kate, and her family, permanently in his life. Just how accidental was it that Catherine 'Kate' Middleton ended up at the University of St Andrews in the autumn of 2001 — at precisely the same time as Prince William?  In August 2000, Kate's A-level results arrived in the post — two As and a B — exactly the grades she needed to secure her place at her first-choice university, Edinburgh. This was where she and two of her best friends from Marlborough College, Alice and Emilia, had long planned to study, and the three girls had already travelled up to Edinburgh together to set up their lodgings.  Out in Belize, where he was on military exercise with the Welsh Guards, Prince William received similarly welcome news — he'd achieved the A, B...

    Prince Andrew has joined the Queen and Prince Philip for lunch at the Balmoral estate as the couple prepare to cut short their Scottish holiday for a two-week break at Sandringham. The Queen's second son, 60, appeared alongside his parents as they stopped for the meal at a cottage near Loch Muick.

    Usually it is the most poignant of departures, but there will be no such wrench when the Queen leaves Balmoral later this month. Her stay in Scotland has been all too brief and stripped of many of the pleasures that make summer days on Royal Deeside so memorable.  Unable to welcome friends and family to stay in the castle because of Covid restrictions, she has also been deprived of the unbridled joy of the Ghillies’ Ball, the highlight of her ten-week holiday, where staff and royals let their hair down for a night of vigorous Scottish dancing. So when she and Prince Philip say their farewells at the end of next week they will have spent little more than half their customary time north of the border.  But in an intriguing break with tradition — and as the Mail reported yesterday — the couple will head for Wood Farm, the spacious but modestly furnished house on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk where they can live the most unassuming of lives. Usually it is the most poignant of departures, but there...
    Many couples have found spending so much more time together in lockdown a strain. But that clearly doesn't apply to the Queen and Prince Philip. Despite having been alone together more in recent months than at any stage of their 72-year marriage – because of the enforced curtailment of Her Majesty's royal duties – they have decided to share even more quiet time. They will leave the Highland grandeur of Balmoral, their traditional summer retreat, more than three weeks early for the intimate surroundings of Wood Farm on the Sandringham Estate, where Philip has a five-bedroom home. Palace officials are in the process of creating a special 'bubble' between Sandringham and Windsor Castle.

    PRINCE Charles is set to quit his landmark “Duchy Originals” farm after 35 years. He will not renew the lease on 900-acre Home Farm, which he turned organic in 1985. 3Prince Charles is set to quit his landmark “Duchy Originals” farm after 35 yearsCredit: Paul Tonge - The Sun 3Charles will not renew the lease on 900-acre Home Farm, which he turned organic in 1985Credit: Alamy Charles is instead set to convert Sandringham into the country’s biggest organic sheep farm. Home Farm, at Highgrove in Gloucestershire, launched the Duchy Originals food boxes now sold by Waitrose and Ocado. Charles was mocked for using “biodynamic” methods in the 1980s, such as planting in lunar cycles and using homeopathic remedies. But many techniques have since been copied.
