Children sang, did readings and performed a play for the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, when they attended a service at West Newton today.
The Queen emerged smiling into the sunshine after the hour-long service at the church of St Peter and Paul, near Sandringham House.
The 87-year-old Monarch then walked along the crowd of well-wishers, accepting gifts and flowers, before visiting the Sandringham Group Sunday School, which was meeting in the nearby village hall.
Twenty-six children were presented with a book by the Queen, before she left in the Royal Bentley.
Crowds had gathered outside the church long before the Queen and Prince Philip arrived. They were met by the Revd Jonathan Riviere, Rector of Sandringham, who escorted them along the path to the picturesque carrstone church.
