The Queen was well enough to attend church at Sandringham earlier this morning, proving she is now over her heavy cold which has plagued her Christmas holiday.
As usual for the Monarch, Her Majesty was driven to St Mary Magdalene Church, to attend her first sermon since before Christmas. She stayed warm with a fleece blanket.
Doctors had advised her to stay indoors to overcome her cold, which later turned into a cough.
Her Majesty avoided church on Christmas Day because of this, as well as New Year’s Day, not wishing to distrub others’ worship.

Over the festive period, The Queen did manage to perform some duties: she presented Ray Wheaton, her Page of the Chambers, with the insignia of a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order.
Joining The Queen and Prince Philip today were The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Middleton family, including Pippa’s fiance, James.
Catherine, in a green coat with grey fur hat, walked down from Sandrignham House with her husband, but without their children. Prince George and Princess Charlotte went to church for their first Christmas service last month, in Berkshire.
