Well wishers greeted the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh as they attended morning service at Sandringham Church today.

The Duke walked to the service with guests including the Earl and Countess of Derby and Viscount and Viscountess Brookborough, while the Queen arrived by car.

In his sermon, the Bishop of Derby highlighted the difference between the numbers who celebrated Christmas and those attending church.

After the service the Queen was presented with flowers by a queue of children.
