The Queen is feeling ‘far better’ and will host Christmas at Sandringham as planned

Good news following her health concerns

There’s some good news for the royal family today (Friday November 26) as sources close to the Queen admit she’s “looking forward” to Christmas.

According to The Mirror, Her Majesty is “far better” and plans to host a traditional Christmas at Sandringham.

The publication reports that she has told her family that she’s well enough to host the festivities now that she’s recovered from a back sprain.

The injury meant she missed the annual Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph in London earlier this month.

Where will the Queen spend Christmas?

But now the 95-year-old monarch is feeling “far better” and is “looking forward” to welcoming members of the family to her Norfolk estate.

It is set to be a particularly poignant Yuletide for Her Majesty as it’s the first one she’ll spend without husband Prince Philip, who died earlier this year.

The Queen’s health has been a source of speculation over recent months.

Not only did she miss the Remembrance Service, but she was forced to pull out of traveling to Glasgow for COP26.

Doctors had ordered her to rest at home rather than heading to the conference to make a speech.

Instead, she addressed attendees in a pre-recorded video message.

Back in October, royal fans were worried after the Queen spent a night in hospital with an undisclosed ailment.

But she was well enough to attend the double royal christening of two of her great-grandsons.

Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall held a joint ceremony for their sons, August and Lucas respectively.

The celebration was held at All Saints Chapel in Windsor on Sunday.

‘She’s alright’

The christening came after Prince Charles assured worried  royals fans that his mother’s health is fine.

The heir to the throne and the Duchess of Cornwall were on a royal tour of Jordan earlier this month and spoke to the media while out there.

When asked about the health of his mother, Prince Charles said:

“She’s alright, thank you very much. Once you get to 95, it’s not quite as easy as it used to be.”

He then jokingly added: “It’s bad enough at 73.”

It’s believed the Prince of Wales brought back Holy water from the River Jordan for the christening service.
