Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern revealed she has received a call from Queen Elizabeth.
Her Majesty checked in to see how New Zealand was doing and wished everyone a ‘wonderful break’, Ardern said in a post to Instagram.
Arden said the Queen shared memories from her time when she once visited New Zealand during the holiday season.
For the first time in decades, the Queen and Prince Philip have switched up their Christmas plans and will be spending the holiday season at Windsor Castle, a statement from Buckingham Palace said.
The royal family traditionally celebrates Christmas at the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk, but the pandemic has forced them to make some big changes.
The Queen, 94, and the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, may be able to see a few family members briefly but are likely to spend most of the festive celebrations alone.
Ardern told Newstalk ZB’s Chris Lynch this morning that she thinks “everyone is ready for a break” this year after Covid-19.
