The Queen has left West Norfolk following her winter break at Sandringham.

The 93-year-old monarch boarded a train at Lynn's railway station this morning to return to London.

Police were out in force around the station as the Queen boarded a scheduled Great Northern service to King's Cross.

The Queen's departure came just hours after the revelation that her grandson, Peter Phillips, is to separate from his wife, Autumn.

The news came at the end of a holiday which has been overshadowed by the withdrawal from royal duty of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

The monarchy has also had to endure the continuing fallout from the Duke of York's association with the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Last week, the Queen opened a new £5 million pumping station at Wolferton, replacing the facility which her father, King George VI, opened in 1948.

She also met service personnel at RAF Marham during her stay, but missed her traditional appointment with the Sandringham WI, where BBC News anchor Huw Edwards was guest speaker, because of a cold.
