The Queen has arrived in Norfolk by train to begin her Christmas break.

Travelling without the Duke of Edinburgh, she caught the 10.42am Great Northern service from King's Cross station in London and arrived at platform two in King's Lynn at 12.31pm.

Her Majesty then briefly mingled with passengers as she was escorted through a side exit to a waiting Range Rover that will take her to Sandringham, the Queen's private estate in Norfolk, which is a 30-minute drive from King's Lynn.

The Queen will be joined by other members of the royal family for part of the festive period and they will attend their traditional Christmas Day church service.
