Queen is totally committed to hosting perfect family Christmas despite hospital stay, expert says

The Queen's recent overnight stay in hospital has done little to dampen her Christmas spirit.

She is reportedly ploughing ahead with plans to host the family at Sandringham, and is "totally committed" to the day going ahead.

This year's celebrations will be extra special as like many families in the UK the Queen, 95, was separated from her loved ones in 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions.
