The Queen has been joined by her guest Sir Jackie Stewart for Sunday service in Sandringham today.
The Queen, who remains in Norfolk on her winter break, looked regal in an aqua ensemble as she arrived at St Mary Magdalene Church, just a stone’s throw away from her home on the Sandringham estate.
The 92-year-old monarch was once again spotted without a seatbelt despite the controversy surrounding the Duke of Edinburgh’s crash last week where he had also gone without a belt.
