What do the Royal Family do on Boxing Day?

Compared with greeting the crowds at church on Christmas Day, Boxing Day is a more leisurely affair for the Royal Family.
In previous years, it has revolved around outdoor pursuits on the Queen's Norfolk estate, including shooting, riding or walking.
The shoot, usually led by the Duke of Edinburgh, takes place after a hearty breakfast in the morning.
Male members of the family set off with their guns, before meeting the Queen and female family members at a remote estate cottage where lunch will be served.
It comes after thousands packed into Sandringham Park for another Royal tradition.
