    Britain's Queen Elizabeth II will not attend a New Year’s Day church service at Sandringham in the United Kingdom’s Norfolk county due to a lasting heavy cold, the Buckingham Palace's spokesperson said Sunday.

    LONDON (Sputnik) — She has already missed the Christmas Day service at her Norfolk estate.

    "Her Majesty The Queen will not attend Sunday worship at Sandringham today," the spokesperson said as quoted by The Telegraph newspaper.

    The queen is not attending the worship "as she is still recuperating from a heavy cold," according to the spokeswoman.
