The Queen’s husband passed away in April aged 99.

Before his death, Her Majesty and the Duke enjoyed many happy memories at their country retreat.

There is much preparation to be done.

After he retired he spent much of his time in Wood Farm, a cottage on the estate.

Since she was forced to rest under doctors’ orders, the Queen has been keen to host the entire family there.

The Queen has been resting at Windsor Castle since being ordered to take it easy by doctors.

The prescription for rest followed a stay in hospital for one night two weeks ago.

“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 insider added that the Queen travelled “on the understanding with her doctors that she continues to rest as advised”.

The Queen is especially keen to hold the coming festivities at Sandringham as she and the Duke spent it alone last year due to the pandemic.

She is due to arrive back at Windsor Castle after the weekend.
