Monarch joins other royals at Christmas Day’s Sandringham church service

The Queen joins the other royals to attend Sandringham church service on Christmas Day, after getting recovered from cold that made her to miss a service on Sunday at her Norfolk home .

After drastic recovery, the Queen cheerfully arrived for the service at St Mary Magdalene Church on the Sandringham estate at 11am.

She has worn a turquoise coat dress with a matching hat. Around 1,000 wellwishers greeted and wished her a merry Christmas.

For arriving at the church service, the Queen made a traditional short journey from Sandringham House in a Bentley accompanied with princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

The Duke of Edinburgh, 91, whose heart problem forced him to miss last year’s service, walked the few hundred yards from the house to the church in the company of the Duke of York and the Earl and the Countess of Wessex.

The Queen traditionally celebrates the festival at Sandringham alongwith her family, but this year three noticeable royals are absent at the Christmas Day gathering.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending Christmas holidays with the Middleton family at their home at Bucklebury, Berkshire .

Prince Harry is serving as an Apache helicopter pilot with British troops in Afghanistan.

According to a Buckingham Palace spokeswoman, Queen’s self-written Christmas speech will focus on “service, achievement and the spirit of togetherness”.
