The Queen has attended a church service along with several other members of the royal family as she continues her break at Sandringham.

She wore a yellow coat and matching hat, paired with black gloves, for the service at St Mary Magdalene Church on the Norfolk estate on Sunday morning.

Three of her children – the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Earl of Wessex – also attended, and were pictured walking to the church with Lady Louise Windsor and Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

The Queen was photographed getting into a waiting car following the service and sat alongside her daughter-in-law, the Countess of Wessex.

Well-wishers gathered at the church to catch a glimpse of the Queen, who spends each winter at Sandringham, arriving before Christmas and staying until early February.

The royals traditionally attend the Church of St Mary Magdalene for the Christmas Day service, greeting the crowds who have turned out to see them, before heading home for lunch and to watch the Queen’s Christmas speech.
