Queen ‘tells family she is feeling much better and will host Christmas at Sandringham’
The Queen has told her family she is feeling much better and looking forward to hosting the rest of the royals at Sandringham this Christmas, according to reports.
Concerns over the monarch’s health have grown recently after she cancelled a number of engagements, which included missing the Remembrance Sunday ceremony for the first time in 22 years due to a back injury.
Buckingham Palace said she made the decision not to attend the service at the Cenotaph in London ‘with great regret’ and was ‘disappointed’ to miss the event.

She had earlier spent a night in hospital for an unconfirmed condition before then being told by doctors to rest at home.
But Prime Minister Boris Johnson then claimed she was ‘very well’ when he saw her in Windsor a few days after.
Now sources close to the Queen have insisted she is on the mend and planning to travel to her Norfolk estate on or around Friday, December 17, according to the Mirror.
It will be an emotional few days, however, as it will be the first Christmas since the death of her husband, Prince Philip.
While a traditional train ride from London to Kings Lynn is not off the table, it’s expected she will instead make take a helicopter from Windsor – a journey which takes around 50 minutes.
