It was a grey morning but that did not stop a gathering of Royal-Family supporters from showing their appreciation for the Queen as she attended Sunday morning service at Sandringham.

Her Majesty wore a camel-colour overcoat with black trim, and held a transparent umbrella with matching black trim as she left St Mary Magdalene Church.

She arrived in a Bentley just before 11am and was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, who smiled and nodded as he walked past the crowd, Princess Anne and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence.

Members of the crowd clapped the Queen as she left the service and climbed inside the car.

Janet Fisk, 63, and her Aunt Janet Cross, 82 - both from Lincolnshire - were among those to brave the chilly weather.

Ms Fisk said as the Duke of Edinburgh passed they said 'good morning' and he asked 'are you singing yet?'- making reference to the song performed by Gene Kelly in the 1952 film Singin' in the Rain.

She added: 'We thought how sprightly and friendly the Duke was. The Queen is doing remarkably well. It's lovely to see her in her 90th year.'
