Queen takes train to Norfolk as she heads off on her Christmas holiday

The Queen has arrived in Norfolk ready to start her Christmas break at the Royal Family’s Sandringham home.

Her Majesty will be joined by other senior Royals, including Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge over the next few days for the festive celebrations.

She left Buckingham Palace this morning and took the train to King’s Lynn station wearing a brown coast and carrying her black handbag.

Security has been in place at the station all morning ahead of the monarch’s arrival.

The Queen kicked off her festive celebrations yesterday when she hosted her annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace, which is normally attended by about 50 members of her family.

The occasion gives her the chance to catch up with members of the family who aren’t travelling to Norfolk with her for the big day itself.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were seen peering out of their car windows as dad William drove them through the gates as they arrived at the Palace.


Meghan and Harry arrived separately with a bag of presents on the back seat.

There has been a lot of speculation about the Royal Family’s Christmas plans amid rumours of a fallout between Princes William and Harry.

There have also been reports their wives Meghan and Kate don’t get on, further fuelled by the announcement the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are moving out of Kensington Palace.

The couple, who are expecting their first child in the spring, will set up home in Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, near where they celebrated their wedding earlier this year.
