LONDON: Welcome back, Your Highness! Queen Elizabeth made her first public appearance in a month on Sunday, attending church at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Sandringham. The 90-year-old monarch stunned in a royal blue suit and matching hat, pairing the look with short black heels. She drove up to the church alongside her 95-year-old husband, Prince Philip, who was clad in an olive green coat. Her Royal Highness and the Duke of Edinburgh have missed multiple appearances over the past month, including a New Year’s Day church service, due to their “heavy colds.” The illnesses also caused a delay in their travel plans right before Christmas. Their transport from Buckingham Palace in London to Sandringham in Norfolk, England, was postponed while they recovered from the colds. They eventually made it to Norfolk by helicopter, but avoided public appearances as they continued to recover. The royal family – who were joined by Kate’s mother Carole Middleton, brother James Middleton and sister Pippa Middleton – were spotted smiling and chatting with locals as they arrived at St. Mary Magdalene church on the Queen’s Sandringham estate. The 90-year-old monarch has been suffering from a heavy cold that had caused her to miss her annual Christmas Day and New Year’s church services. But it appears that on Sunday she rallied for her first public appearance in nearly one month and her first outing since confirming that she was under the weather.
