Buckingham Palace confirmed does not depend on That Her Majesty is spending Christmas and New Years at Windsor Castle, rather than traveling to her home in Norfolk as usual.

The royal source said that the decision is personal and was taken after careful study and reflects a precautionary method.

The family will visit The Queen in Windsor, reasonable precautions will be taken and all relevant guidelines will be followed.

This is due to an earlier decision to cancel her traditional family dinner before Christmas tomorrow (December 21).
