The Queen returns to London, catching train from King’s Lynn after Christmas break in Norfolk

The Queen left Norfolk to return to London today, catching a scheduled train from King's Lynn.

She walked down the platform wearing a grey checked coat and a headscarf, accompanied by personal protection officers, after making the short journey to the station from Sandringham by limousine.

She boarded the 10:56 First Capital Connect service to London, sitting in a first class compartment at the front of the train for the 90-minute journey to King's Cross, for which a single ticket costs �47.20.

The Duke of Edinburgh is believed to be staying on at Sandringham, where he and the Queen have enjoyed their traditional Christmas and New Year break with members of the Royal family and other guests.

Yesterday 200 people gathered to see the Queen attend a church service on the 59th anniversary of her accession to the throne.

The Queen chatted to well-wishers and accepted flowers from children after the service at the St Peter and St Paul Church in West Newton, near Sandringham, with the Duke of Edinburgh.

She became Queen after King George VI died in his sleep at Sandringham in the early hours of February 6 1952.
