Prince Philip will join the Queen at Windsor Castle due to lack of staff for two anti-Covid bubbles

PRINCE Philip will join the Queen at Windsor Castle because the Royals do not have enough staff for them to live apart, The Sun understands.

The Queen, 94, and Duke of Edinburgh, 99, arrive at Sandringham on Monday for a two-week break before a return to “HMS Bubble” at Windsor Castle.

Prince Philip wanted to stay at Sandringham but there are too few royal staff to create two bubbles 130-miles apart, insiders revealed.

Instead, they are said to be staying at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate as a "compromise" before returning together to Windsor.

A source said: "Philip didn't want to go to Balmoral and doesn't want to go to Windsor.

"But there is not enough staff to make two bubbles so he is being made to go.

"It makes far more sense to keep them together."

The Duke usually lives at Wood Farm cottage when the Queen is working at Windsor.

HMS Bubble requires 24 staff working in two teams of 12 on ‘three weeks on and three weeks off' with a further week in quarantine.

The Queen and Duke spent six months together due to lockdown – one of the longest periods during their 72-year marriage.

And have privately vowed to try and spend more time together.

Buckingham Palace did not want to comment.
