Norfolk Police have issued a statement to confirm that there will be no royal attendance of any Christmas Day church service at Sandringham tomorrow.

The police said: "Members of the public and media are advised there will be no organised royal event at Sandringham this year. Members of the Royal Family will not be attending the usual Christmas Day service."

Due to Covid restrictions, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh are spending Christmas at Windsor this year, the first time since 1988 that they have not spent Christmas at Sandringham.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are spending Christmas on the Sandringham Estate at Anmer Hall, with their three young children, George, aged seven, Louis, two and Charlotte, five.

Prince Edward and his wife Sophie are also thought to be in the area after they were spotted at Sandringham enjoying the Luminate light show with their children Lady Louise Windsor, 17, and 13-year-old James Viscount Severn.

The St Mary Magdalene Church website confirms that a Holy Communion service will be held at 8am tomorrow with 2m social distancing between worshippers and no singing.

People travel from across the globe to join the thousands of people normally packed into the paddock beside the church to watch the Queen and other members of the Royal Family attend.

Police are keen that no breaches of Covid-19 restrictions take place this year.

Last year Princess Charlotte was the star of the show as she mingled with the crowds outside the church.
