The Queen braved the cold first Sunday in January to attend a church service at Sandringham.

The monarch, wearing a fawn coat and hat, travelled to St Mary Magdalene Church by car but was joined by royals including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who walked to the service.

St Mary Magdalene is regularly used as a place of worship by the royal family, including for the Christmas Day service.

Each winter, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh head to the Norfolk estate, typically staying until February.
