Queen serves sunday school lunches

The Queen played the role of dinner lady while attending church on the last day of her winter break

The Queen played the role of dinner lady while attending church on the last day of her winter break.

Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, she went to St Peter and St Paul's church in West Newton near to the Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

She handed out prizes to children for their good attendance at church and then brought them lunch of sausage and mash.

Charlie Adams, who helps out at the Sunday school for the parish of Sandringham and West Newton, said: "The Queen and the Duke spent a lot of time talking to the children and their parents.

"About 20 of them performed a version of Daniel and the Lion's Den for her. They practised so hard."

The Queen, who was wearing a fuchsia coat with a matching hat and black knee high boots, met the crowds lining the street to wish her well.

Royal watchers said they were disappointed that the 83-year-old monarch is due to leave the Norfolk estate to return to Buckingham Palace next week.

Mary Relph, 76, who has been watching the royal family for 65 years, said: "She looked beautiful in pink.

"I'm very sad that we won't be seeing her for some time. It's always upsetting when the Queen goes back."
