The Princess Royal has said the Queen is feeling “better” despite missing a New Year’s Day service at Sandringham.

Princess Anne spoke to well-wishers outside the church of St. Mary Magdalene after attending the church service. Vice Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence added that Her Majesty is “not too bad”.

Other members of the royal family in attendance included The Duke of Edinburgh, who seems to have made a full recovery, and the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

Statement from Buckingham Palace

“Her Majesty The Queen will not attend Sunday worship at Sandringham today.

“The Queen does not yet feel ready to attend Church as she is still recuperating from a heavy cold.”

According to Buckingham Palace missing the church service was a “precautionary measure” and there was “no sense of undue concern”.
