Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex: Why royal couple are ‘favourites’ of the Queen | Royal | News (Reports)


Prince Edward, 56, his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 55, and their two children Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, will bubble-up with Queen Elizabeth II, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, at Sandringham for Christmas, a royal insider has claimed.

From December 23 to December 27 Government restrictions around COVID-19 will be relaxed allowing up to three households to spend the five-day period over Christmas together.

Last week a royal source said: “Prince Edward and his family will be one of the two in her bubble.”

The news that Edward and Sophie are expected to spend Christmas with the Queen seems to confirm their status as royal favourites.

Edward and his family were also the first royals to visit the Queen and Prince Philip at Balmoral after the first lockdown ended in the summer.

Sophie and Edward live at Bagshot Park in Surrey – the royal residence was a wedding gift from the Queen.

The couple have chosen to raise their two children without royal titles leaving it up to Louise and James to choose whether they want to be known as princess and prince when they turn 18.

Up to 30 royal Family members could gather at Sandringham on Boxing Day to take part in the traditional pheasant shoot.

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and Prince William and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge could be among royals to meet the Queen at Sandringham the day after Christmas.
