The Queen has reportedly been left "furious" at palace staff who have allegedly been left angry over plans to make them leave their families and work for the royal family over Christmas.

Staff have reportedly said "enough is enough" and are not willing to work through the Christmas period without seeing their loved ones.

Every Christmas, the Queen travels to Sandringham for a festive break, and staff usually follow her to provide backup support.

Due to coronavirus, staff have been asked to "isolate from their families" forcing workers to admit their wish to stay local.

At least 20 staff including cleaners, laundry and maintenance workers feel as though they’ve been "pushed too far."

The uprising could mean the Queen will spent Christmas at Windsor Castle for the first time in 33 years.

An Insider told the Sun: "The Queen is furious.

"The staff said enough is enough. It is absolutely unprecedented.

"Everybody wants to stay loyal but they feel they’ve been pushed too far by being made to isolate from their families for Christmas."
