Well-wishers gathered at the church to catch a glimpse of the Queen, who spends each winter at Sandringham, arriving before Christmas and staying until early February.

The monarch wore a vibrant purple hat and a matching woollen coat, which she complimented with a sparkling brooch and pearl earrings.

The 93-year-old Queen was pictured with a blue blanket draped across her lap as she left the church service in a maroon Bentley.
