Start of Queen's Christmas Holiday Delayed as She and Prince Philip Have Bad Colds

Caption: The Queen and Prince Philip have both been taken suddenly ill 

The 90-year-old monarch was due to take the train from London to King's Lynn this morning at the start of what was supposed to be her traditional Christmas break at Sandringham. 

But about half-an-hour before she was due to leave, officials suddenly told assembled photographers: "It's not happening now."

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

The Royal Standard is still flying over Buckingham Palace and Her Majesty is still inside the building. Click link for full post from EXPRESS.
