King Charles in high spirits as he flashes smile while attending Sunday service at Sandringham church





King Charles seemed in high spirits as he was seen making his way to and from a church service at Sandringham yesterday.

The King, who recently celebrated his 75th birthday, was spotted greeting Reverend Canon Paul Williams, rector of Sandringham, ahead of the service at St Mary Magdalene Church.

The monarch wrapped up warm for the occasion, with thick gloves and a long coat – as temperatures hit the low single figures.

After the service, he waved and flashed a smile to those who had gathered to catch a glimpse of him on the royal estate.

The King’s appearance at Sandringham came after residents said they had spotted a convoy of royal vehicles between Sandringham and Lynn on Friday.

And it came just weeks before the royals are expected to spend the festive period at Sandringham – as has been the custom for decades.

In years gone by, Queen Elizabeth II travelled to the estate after catching the train from London King's Cross to Lynn, a week or so before Christmas Day.

On December 25, King Charles and Queen Camilla, along with other members of the Royal Family, are expected to attend the Christmas Day service at Sandringham’s St Mary Magdalene Church
