Queen Elizabeth still hopeful that all the members of her family can gather and spend one day together 

Queen Elizabeth is devastated over the fact that the royal family might have to give this year's Christmas church service  a miss, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

However, the monarch is hopeful that all the members of her family can gather and spend one day together during the holiday season.

As per tradition, every year members of the public normally gather outside St Mary Magdalene Church to see the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Camilla, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the rest of the family in Sandringham.

This is for the first time that the same royal tradition will not be followed, in order to keep royals safe from contracting the virus.

As reported by Express UK, the Queen will somehow make an arrangement for her family to atleast spend a day together.

The newspaper claims that she hopes the government will scrap the Rule of Six before the big day, which will allow them to be together in some way.

It is certain that this year's royal Christmas celebrations will be different than usual.

They normally start the festivities on Christmas Eve, with an afternoon tea followed by opening presents, in line with their German heritage.

On Christmas Day they delve into a traditional feast with all the trimmings at 1pm.
