As Christmas approaches, Europe's royal have begun to wind down for the festive break. On Thursday the Queen arrived in Norfolk for her annual Christmas holiday at Sandringham.
Britain's monarch sported a flecked green coat and a patterned headscarf as she walked along the platform at King's Lynn railway station, a broad smile on her face.
Elsewhere Queen Mathilde of Belgium wowed in a striking halterneck dress as she stepped out with King Philippe and her four children for the Christmas Concert at the Royal Palace in Brussels and Spain's Queen Letizia opted for a chic white number and a black roundnecked coat when she hosted a lunch for Senegalese President Macky Sall.
