Prince Charles and Camilla Release New Picture as Royals Spend Christmas Separately
From good housekeeping
Usually on Christmas Day there is an abundance of photos of the British royal family making their way to church en masse for the 11am service on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk. However, like all of us this year, the Queen and her descendants have a very different kind of Christmas and will mark the day separately and behind closed doors.
In the absence of public appearances, Clarence House posted a new photo of Prince Charles and Camilla to celebrate Christmas. It was recorded earlier this year by a staff member in Birkhall, Scotland, and shows the couple dressed casually and holding walking sticks in front of the camera. The prince smiles broadly and has binoculars around his neck. The duchess wears jeans. Back in July, during an interview with BBC Radio 5, she announced that she was "very, very happy" to wear jeans this year. She said to host Emma Barnett, “I was very, very happy with my jeans. It will be very difficult to get out of them. I think you get into some kind of lifestyle don't you? "

The photo was taken in Scotland earlier this year, but today Charles and Camilla are spending Christmas Day together at the Highgrove residence in Prince's Gloucestershire. The Duchess had also hoped to see her children and grandchildren during the festive season if restrictions allow, and the couple also stated earlier this year that they will join the Queen and Prince Philip, who are quietly spending Christmas at Windsor Castle could pay socially distant visits. The Cambridges are currently based in their Norfolk home, Notes Hall.
Like all families across the UK, the royals are subject to tight restrictions during the holiday season as the spread of COVID-19 increases and a new strain is confirmed that is believed to be more contagious. The UK government had originally said that up to three households could meet indoors for five days during the holiday season, but the rules changed in less than a week by Christmas. The country is now divided into plains, with London and the South East facing the toughest restrictions, which for most means that even on Christmas Day there is no household mix at all. In other areas, three households are allowed to meet, but only on Christmas Day.
A royal tradition that continues as usual is the Queen's Christmas broadcast, pre-recorded and played in front of the nation at 3:00 p.m. in the UK today. Outside of that time she rarely takes part in television shows, but earlier this year, at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, she memorably addressed the nation.
