‘Heavy cold’ delays Queen’s Christmas plans

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have “heavy colds” and have decided not to travel today for the start of their Christmas break.

They were due to make their traditional train journey this morning from Kings Cross in London to Norfolk to begin their holiday at Sandringham.

However, despite police and staff at the station in numbers, they did not show up and have decided to stay at Buckingham Palace for the time being, where the Royal Standard is still flying.

A palace spokesperson said: “The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have heavy colds, and so have decided not to travel to Sandringham today.”

The Queen and Duke normally take the same first-class service every year from the capital to King’s Lynn, from where they travel on to the royal estate.
