Wellwishers braved the weather to greet the Queen as she attended a church service today.
Crowds were waiting for the 93-year-old monarch outside West Newton Church, on the Sandringham Estate near King's Lynn.
The Queen was greeted by the Rev Jonathan Rivere, the rector for Sandringham parishes.
During the service 19 children from the Sandringham Group Sunday School received prizes, before leading the prayers and performing a play based on the story of Zacchaeus, the unscrupulous tax collector.
After the 45-minute service, the Queen walked to the nearby village hall, where parents and children had gathered.
