In a statement from the Palace, they wrote: “Her Majesty The Queen will not attend Church at Sandringham this morning.
“The Queen continues to recover from a heavy cold and will stay indoors to assist with her recovery.
“Her Majesty will participate in the Royal Family Christmas celebrations during the day.”
The royal duo had their journey delayed due to heavy colds, but flew to Sandringham by helicopter on Thursday.
This is the first time she will be absent since 1988.
Since very early this morning, crowds of onlookers have gathered in Sandringham, her Norfolk estate, in the hopes of seeing Royal family members for the annual event.
