Queen braves downpour to attend church

By Catherine Wyatt

The Queen has attended church for the second Sunday this year after a heavy cold led to her missing festive services.

The monarch was joined by her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, at St Mary the Virgin Church in Flitcham, Norfolk.

Also in attendance was David Armstrong-Jones, the second Earl of Snowdon, whose father died just two days earlier. The former husband of Princess Margaret and celebrity photographer Lord Snowdon died, aged 86, on January 13.

Meanwhile, The Prince of Wales has penned a Ladybird book about climate change. He wrote it with Tony Juniper, a former Friends of the Earth director, and Emily Shuckburgh, a Cambridge University climate scientist.

Elsewhere, The Duke of Cambridge is preparing to quit his job as a rescue pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

The Sunday Times reported the move is to allow William to focus on his royal duties as the Queen reduces her workload. He and wife Kate are also to make Kensington Palace in London their home.
