Prince William & Duchess Kate Change Christmas Plans Due To COVID-19
Prince William and Kate Middleton were forced to change their Christmas plans at the last minute due to new COVID-19 restrictions in the UK. According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were considering spending the holidays with the Middleton family, but that will no longer be possible. This is what they'll be doing instead.
Prince William and Duchess Kate's plans for Christmas have changed... yet again. According to People, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be forced to spend the holidays at Anmer Hall in Norfolk after the UK government imposed restrictions following the discovery of a new strain of COVID-19 in the region. Previously, the couple had considered spending the season with Kate's family, the Middletons, but that's no longer on the table.
Prince William & Duchess Kate's Christmas 2020 plans change
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, will spend the Christmas holidays solo after their plans were interrupted by new lockdown measures in the UK.
As reported by outlets including People, the Cambridges had considered spending the holiday season with the Middletons in Berkshire. It would have been the first Christmas Prince William celebrated with his wife's family.
However, the region has been closed by the British government, so neither the Duke and Duchess nor Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, will be able to travel and meet with Michael and Carole Middleton, as they had previously considered.
Middleton family unable to welcome Kate and Prince William
Unable to celebrate the holidays with either of their families, Prince William and Kate Middleton will have to spend Christmas this year with their three children at Anmer Hall on their Norfolk estate.
There is speculation that William could still see his father, Prince Charles, at some point over the holiday. Charles and Duchess Camilla earlier cancelled their annual plans at Balmoral, but it's also appearing questionable if they'll be able to gather with family at all.
