The Queen on Three Kings Day



On the day of the Three Kings, the Queen has been seen attending church. HM headed to morning service at St. Mary Magdalene Church near Sandringham on Epiphany, the modern end of the Christmas holiday period.

Of course, the Queen will be at Sandringham a little longer - the soon to be 93 year old generally stays at her Norfolk home until early February, passing the anniversary of her accession (and her father's death) there before returning to London. And in days of yore, Christmas went on until Candlemas, on February 2nd, meaning those of us taking down the tree for January 6th might have peaked too early.

The Queen was joined at church by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who went on a mini walkabout outside St. Mary Magdalene Church following the service.

 Later this week, the Duchess of Cambridge will celebrate her 37th birthday. And while we won't see Kate on January 9th, we will get a glimpse of William as he heads out to mark the work of the London Air Ambulance. And hopefully next Sunday we get to see HM all over again, even if the Three Kings have been left behind for another year.
