Queen attends Sunday morning church at Hillington, near King’s Lynn, after the service was cancelled last year due to ceiling collapse
The Queen attended a church service near Sandringham, one year after the same event had to be cancelled because the building was deemed unsafe.
A crowd of around 50 well-wishers had gathered at St Mary's Church, Hillington, to welcome the Queen, who was wearing a peach overcoat and matching hat.
She had been due to attend the same church last January, but this was called off after a section of the ceiling directly above the pulpit collapsed.
A note was put up in the church window days before the service, expressing 'disappointment' that it would have to be cancelled.
Instead, the Queen made her way to her usual service at St Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham.
In the 12 months since, though, the damage – believed to have been minor – has been made good and the 15th century church was able to welcome the Queen yesterday.
She arrived with the Duke of Edinburgh in a maroon Bentley for the 45-minute service, led by Canon Jonathan Riviere.
