  • Queen attended service at St Peter and St Paul church in West Newton today

  • Despite the mercury rising to just 3 degrees, the blue skies brought out a small group of royal well-wishers – including schoolchildren – to the church’s entrance

The Duke of Edinburgh, who is officially retired from public duties, has kept a lower profile since his accident in January, which saw him collide with an oncoming vehicle after being ‘dazzled’ by the bright sunshine.

The accident happened as Philip pulled out of a side road on to the 60mph limit A149 road. His Land Rover collided with a Kia car, sending his vehicle tumbling across the road where it ended up on its side. 

Last week, the monarch was seen enjoying a shoot with some close friends on the the Sandringham estate.  

Joined by her daughter Princess Anne and her husband Tim Laurence, the 92-year-old led the way, using a walking stick to negotiate the rough terrain.

Prince Philip did not attend. However, racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart was among the shooting party, and is well known for being a keen marksmen.

The 79-year-old was a prize-winning member of the Scottish clay pigeon shooting team before he became a racing driver and competed in the UK and abroad.
