Queen's winter break coming to an end

By Staff Reporter

The Queen beamed broadly as she greeted well-wishers at her last Sunday service in Norfolk.

Her Majesty attended a morning service at St Peter and Paul Church in West Newton, where she smiled warmly as she was handed flowers by people in the crowd outside.

The Queen (91) wore a deep red overcoat with a gold brooch and feathered hat on a sunny yet chilly day as she arrived in her Bentley with Prince Philip (96).

Children from Sandringham Group Sunday School performed a play during the service. Afterwards the Queen handed them prizes, including novels by the Belfast-born author of The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, CS Lewis.

The royal couple have been staying at Sandringham in East Anglia since mid-December, but will be returning to London this week. The 20,000-acre Sandringham royal estate includes a number of churches, and last week the royals attended St Mary Magdalene Church.
