It appears Queen Elizabeth's health is improving as she has been given clearance from her doctors to spend time at her Sandringham estate.
The 95-year-old had been staying at Windsor Castle due to bad health, and it has been reported that she is "delighted" to travel to her Norfolk Christmas residence.
Although she has been instructed to stay on rest orders, she is reportedly "committed" to hosting her immediate and extended family for the holidays.

A royal source shared with The Sun, "The Queen had been hoping she would still be able to spend the weekend at Sandringham and was delighted her doctors gave her all-clear to travel.
"Her Majesty is very much looking forward to hosting her family at her Norfolk home for the Christmas holiday and there is much preparation to be done in time to accommodate everyone who has been invited."
The news comes after the Queen was forced to step away from her public duties to recuperate.
In late October, Buckingham Palace announced that she would not attend the COP26 summit in person.
"Her Majesty has regretfully decided that she will no longer travel to Glasgow to attend the evening reception of COP26 on Monday, 1 November," the statement read.
"Her Majesty is disappointed not to attend the reception but will deliver an address to the assembled delegates via a recorded video message."

The royal matriarch was also meant to travel to Northern Ireland for a royal visit, but the trip was "reluctantly" cancelled at the last minute due to doctor's orders.
Later, she was admitted to hospital the same day and stayed overnight before returning to Windsor.
Christmas with the Queen has been long reported as a celebration filled with rigid formalities, and it's held every year at Sandringham.
On Christmas Eve, family members must dress in black-tie for dinner, and on the morning of a full English breakfast is served before a church service at St Mary Magdalene's Church.

In the afternoon, lunch runs for 50 minutes, followed by a TV viewing of the Queen's pre-recorded Christmas message at 3pm.
However, the festive season doesn't end there. On Boxing Day, the family enjoys a round of pheasant shooting before eating leftovers and watching the cricket.
The Queen's speech is one of the most important moments in the royal calendar, and after her recent absence from public life, we are looking forward to her address more than ever.
