Kate and William at Anmer this Christmas
It seem as if at least part of the royal family will be spending the Christmas holidays in West Norfolk as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoy festivities at Anmer Hall.
The Queen is missing out on a Sandringham Christmas for the first time since 1988 because of the coronavirus restrictions put in place on gatherings.
She and the Duke of Edinburgh are staying at Windsor this Christmas and new year.
The Cambridges came to Anmer Hall last week before the latest changes in lockdown rules.
National newspapers are reporting that the original plan was that they were going to join Kate's parents Michael and Carole Middleton in Berkshire but that plan was scuppered when it was put in Tier 3, preventing a trip to Tier 2 Norfolk.
Plans for them to come to the Sandringham estate were then ended by the latest announcement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson of Tier 4 for much of the South East of England, meaning no mixing at all.
The family have published its Christmas card showing the family in a rural setting in front of a wood shed.
