The sun came out for Her Majesty

Following a wintery week of grim weather, the sun came out for the Queen on Sunday as she attended church in Norfolk. Her Majesty looked lovely in a woollen peach two-piece and matching hat - perfect for bringing a little cheer on a chilly weekend! She smiled as she met members of the public, following a Sunday service at St Peter and St Paul church in West Newton, Norfolk. Keeping warm by wearing black gloves, the Queen also accepted a bundle of daffodils and a bouquet of pink and white flowers from well-wishers.
