Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain is upset by the act of the courtiers, who rejected an offer to stay in the palace for New Year's and Christmas holidays in order to serve and live with the royal family during this period. The British edition of The Sun writes about this with reference to sources close to the monarch's entourage.

It is reported that the palace staff were asked to move to Sandringham Palace for a month, where the Queen herself rests every year. At the same time, the publication separately emphasizes that if a sufficient number of courtiers do not agree to this long move, 94-year-old Elizabeth will be forced to celebrate Christmas in London for the first time in more than three decades.
“The Queen is just furious. The staff say they've had enough. This has never happened before. Everyone wants to show loyalty, but they believe that trying to separate them from their families during Christmas is too much, “writes The Sun.
According to some reports, about two dozen of the Queen's courtiers, including laundry workers and cleaners, have already expressed their outrage at the proposal.
