Queen spotted in Sandringham as monarch flies to Windsor Castle in helicopter – PICTURES

The Queen looked pensive in pictures showing her being driven away from Wood Farm, a five-bedroom cottage where she is believed to have stayed over the past few days. In the snaps, the head of state was sitting in the back of a Range Rover, looking outside of the window.

The 96-year-old appeared to be wearing a colourful cardigan and a dark green vest above it.

The Queen was being driven to her helicopter, which later took her to her Berkshire residence – Windsor Castle. 

The monarch had travelled to her Norfolk estate on April 20, one day prior her 96th birthday. 

She is believed to have spent her birthday privately, as other members of the Royal Family were carrying out engagements up and down the country. 

Over the past week, the Queen reportedly stayed at Wood Farm, a farmhouse which the late Duke of Edinburgh had made his main residence between his retirement in the summer of 2017 and the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. 

In that residence, the royals are known to let go of the more stringent etiquette rules in place in other royal palaces. 

Speaking prior to the sovereign’s birthday, sources said the decision of the Queen to take a “mini break” in Sandringham was a “positive step”, in the midst of concerns for her advancing age and reported mobility issues.

One royal source told the Mirror: “The Queen is taking a well-earned break and will mark her birthday very modestly this year. 

“She feels very at home at Wood Farm and close to her beloved husband and it’s wonderful she was able to travel to enjoy the getaway.”
