Duchess Kate is anticipated to host a modest gathering of family and close friends, instead of having a large celebration.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge missed out on the customary Royal Family Christmas celebrations when the Queen was forced to abandon her plans to host the festivities at Sandringham on Friday. A smaller lunch was conducted at Windsor Castle due to concerns over the Omicron Covid variation, while the Cambridges hosted Duchess Kate’s family at Anmer Hall, their rural hideaway on the Sandringham estate. According to a source, the 39-year-old royal will be honoured in a low-key manner. She didn’t want anything showy in the first place since it’s not her style but everything is likely to be toned back in the current atmosphere. Kensington Palace will commemorate the special occasion by releasing a new portrait of the Duchess, who is an avid photographer herself.
