Kate Middleton and Prince William will be celebrating privately in the countryside after Queen disappointment over Omicron fears.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children were due to be with the Queen at Sandringham Palace but the rise in infections has scuppered most plans for the Royal Family.
However, William and Kate will still be close to the Norfolk palace to celebrate Christmas as they spend the holidays at Anmer Hall, a property on the same estate.
The disruption due to the new Omicron variant also gives the couple the rare opportunity to spent the special day with Kate’s family instead.
According to Hello!, the Duke and Duchess are expected to host the Middleton family at their rumoured ten bedroom home.
Anmer Hall was the permanent residence of Kate, William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte from 2015 to 2017 but is now a countryside retreat.
It is not known which members of the Middleton family are attending but reports suggest Pippa Matthews and her family, including her second child Grace, could be attending.
Some fans on social media are hoping to see a photograph of the Cambridge children along with Pippa’s two kids.
