It was business as usual for the Queen as she attended church at Sandringham yesterday, having missed her traditional appointment with the WI last Thursday.

The 93-year-old monarch was absent from the meeting at the West Newton village hall, where BBC News anchor Huw Edwards was the guest speaker, because of a slight cold.

Among those joining the royal party for the service at the St Mary Magdalene Church on Sunday was motor racing legend and family friend Sir Jackie Stewart.

Sir Jackie, a three-time world champion, is now a leading campaigner for research towards a cure for dementia.

He chairs the Race Against Dementia charity, which was set up after his wife, Lady Helen, was diagnosed with a form of the condition six years ago.

Sir Jackie walked to the service alongside the Princess Royal.
