Gb: the queen in Sandringham, first move in months

(ANSA) – LONDON, JANUARY 23 – Queen Elizabeth II moved today to the country residence of Sandringham, in Norfolk (eastern England), in her first move in months from Windsor Castle where the doctors had recommended a period of rest since last October, then lasted until now. This was announced by the British court, releasing a news that reflects a positive signal on the conditions of the sovereign, 96 years old in April, in anticipation of the key celebrations – between February and June – of the Platinum Jubilee: the record anniversary of her 70 years on the throne.

Her Majesty faced the helicopter trip, after having had to give up last month for the first time in 32 years of her traditional Christmas stay in Sandringham due to the spread of Covid infections fueled by the Omicron wave in those weeks: a wave that now on the contrary, it is decreasing in the UK, with fewer than 75,000 other cases recorded today, down 15.4% on a weekly basis, and 75 deaths.

In these months spent in the isolation of Windsor – and also marked by a rare 24-hour hospitalization for unspecified investigations – the queen has carried out only light and episodic official commitments, at home. While he had to forfeit a whole series of external appointments, including the highly anticipated participation in the UN international climate conference held in November in Glasgow, Scotland, under the British presidency. It also limited itself to hosting the heir to the throne Charles and his wife Camilla among close family members for Christmas. Returning from a 2021 that saw the death of the almost centenary Prince Philip, her life partner for 73 years, Elizabeth appears to be willing to make her presence felt on the occasion of the Platinum Jubilee, despite the embarrassment and bitterness of the recent repudiation from any official role of his third son Andrea, involved in the Epstein sex scandal in the USA.
