The Queen is opening up part of one of her favourite homes to film fans, as Britons enjoy the last days of a summer which has seen many events cancelled or postponed.
Sandringham Estate, the Queen’s Norfolk home, will host several drive-in films at the end of September, from family favourite Moana to war drama 1917.
The Queen is currently in Balmoral, her Scottish home in Aberdeen, after spending lockdown in Windsor Castle, in Berkshire.
But Sandringham is a home close to her heart, as it’s where she spends Christmas every year, a tradition which began around 1992, after a fire in Windsor forced them to move the festivities.
She usually stays there until February, as she marks the day her father died and she became queen quietly at the home before returning to London.
Sandringham is where the royals gather for the Christmas Day church service, with Prince George and Princess Charlotte joining their parents there in December 2019.
Earlier this summer, Prince William hosted an outdoor screening of the FA Cup Final on the Sandringham Estate, which was renamed the Heads Up final to mark his campaign for mental health support in football.
Guests included comedian Romesh Ranganathan and Heads Up co-founder and former England captain Tony Adams.
The drive-in experiences will be hosted by Enchanted Cinema, and will be run in accordance with social distancing and COVID-19 guidelines.
Usually visitors would sit in deckchairs or picnic rugs as they watch the films outdoors, but to adapt to the current regulations, people will stay in or near their cars instead, with sound transmitted via bluetooth or auxiliary systems.
The events start on 25 September with 1917 and Rocketman, and continue on 26 September with Toy Story, Greatest Showman and Bohemian Rhapsody.
On the last day, 27 September, visitors can choose between Moana, Grease and A Star Is Born.
Sandringham House and Estate was able to reopen after closure due to the coronavirus pandemic and like other royal residences is offering visits by advance booking only.
Those who visit the house must wear face coverings.
The estate is allowing ‘pick your own’ in its orchards and is planning for a winter light trail later this year.
