Children from the Sandringham Group Sunday School performed for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh at West Newton on Sunday.

The royal couple attended the hour-long service at the Church of St Peter and St Paul, led by the Rev Jonathan Riviere, rector of Sandringham, before greeting crowds who had gathered in the winter sunshine.

The Queen accepted flowers from well-wishers before visiting the Sunday School in the village hall.

The children gave readings and performed a play called Whither Thou Go’est, based on the Bible story of Ruth and Naomi, to the royal guests, and 26 youngsters received prizes from the Queen.

Yesterday the Queen, as Honorary Air Commodore of the base, made a private visit to RAF Marham.

Last night, the Duke of Edinburgh was due to attend a meeting of the Rotary Club of King’s Lynn.

The royal couple are expected to return to London next week following their winter break at Sandringham.
