It was the first public outing for Queen Elizabeth since undergoing knee surgery two weeks ago, the BBC reported. The Queen arrived by car with Sophie, the Countess of Wessex and wife of Prince Edward. The countess gave birth to the newest royal Nov. 10.
The rest of the family walked from Sandringham House, including Prince Charles and his sons, William and Harry; Prince Andrew and his daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie; and Princess Anne and her family, the BBC said.
Many of those gathered outside the church told the BBC they were anxious to see the Queen and her daughter after Anne's dog attacked one the of the Queen's beloved corgis, leading to its death earlier this week.
"It kind of takes the shine off Christmas for the Queen," one spectator told the BBC.
