Queen returns to Windsor Castle to rest after long weekend away at Sandringham

THE Queen has returned to Windsor Castle to rest after spending a weekend in Sandringham.

Her Majesty, 95, was pictured this morning being driven from her Norfolk estate, where she has spent the last few nights.

She had headed to Sandringham for a mini-break last week after being told by doctors to rest up.

Her Majesty has been recuperating after an overnight stay in hospital last month.

The monarch wore a headscarf as she was driven off the estate before making the 105-mile journey to Windsor by helicopter from around 11.15am.

Doctors have told the Queen to remain on “light duties” for two weeks after spending a night in ­hospital last month for “preliminary investigations”.


She is expected to lead the Royal Family's tributes at this Sunday's Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph in London.

But she will miss Saturday's annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Queen had pulled out of a recent trip to Northern Ireland and the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow after doctors told her to rest.

She was alsoforced to give up horse riding two months ago after suffering “discomfort”.

Royal doctors cleared the Queen to take a 50-minute helicopter flight from Windsor Castle last week.

She was seen on Friday being driven in a Range Rover towards Wood Farm on the estate, which she often visited with her late-husband Prince Philip.

Philip, who died in April, had spent his retirement on the farm before returning to Windsor Castle with the Queen last September for lockdown.
