Duke of Edinburgh joins Royals at church
Sunday 01 January 2012
The Duke of Edinburgh today joined the rest of the royal family for the New Year's Day church service.
Arriving on foot, the Duke smiled at well-wishers outside Sandringham Church at 11am.
There had been doubts whether the Duke would attend following his health scare which forced him to miss Christmas at Sandringham.
He was admitted to Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire, on December 23 where doctors discovered a blocked artery.
The 90-year-old underwent a “minimally invasive procedure” of coronary stenting which was declared a success. He was discharged on Tuesday.
About 300 members of the public watched as the Queen arrived in a Bentley but the Duke made the 400 metre walk from Sandringham house.
Wearing a camel coat, he walked briskly as the royals entered the church.
