The King and Queen have attended a church service in Sandringham on New Year’s Eve.

The King’s Christmas message this year focused on the climate and referred to the ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East.

He said he prayed people would do “all in [their] power to protect each other” at a time of “increasingly tragic conflict around the world”.

During his address, he also hailed key workers as the “essential backbone of our society”, and said he was “delighted” that many of them were present at his coronation in May.
