The Queen (opens in new tab) has arrived. In Sandringham, that is, for the royal family's annual Christmas (opens in new tab) holiday celebration.

Her Royal Highness was photographed on Friday, December 20, stepping off the train from London at King's Lynn railway station. Queen Elizabeth II (opens in new tab) takes the train in from London's King's Cross station every year to enjoy her Christmas break at Sandringham House in King's Lynn, England.

The Queen looked bright and happy (opens in new tab) in a warm, pale pink coat. She protected herself from the chill air, covering her head in a baby blue and light pink patterned head scarf, and carried a simple, classic black hand bag and matching, shiny black shoes. Take a look at the royal ensemble below:

Still, the Queen appeared to be in good spirits and quite excited for the holidays.
