The Queen has a very unusual cold remedy!
Whilst Her Majesty was ill over the Christmas period, she cheered herself up by watching Laurel and Hardy films, reports the Sunday Express.
An insider said the TV set at Sandringham has been switched to the archive film channel Talking Pictures TV, which plays old movies and TV shows.
‘The Queen has really been enjoying some of the channel’s output, especially Laurel and Hardy and films starring Sid James and Dora Bryan,’ explains a source.
‘She normally doesn’t have much time to watch television but obviously when she was told to rest up by doctors, she was able to convalesce by watching some of the films she would have first enjoyed as a girl.’
The 90-year-old monarch missed the traditional church service at the Sandringham Estate on Christmas Day because she was suffering from a heavy cold.
She was told by doctors to rest up and relax at home.
A Kensington Palace spokesman said on Christmas Day: 'Her Majesty The Queen will not attend Church at Sandringham this morning.
'The Queen continues to recover from a heavy cold and will stay indoors to assist with her recovery.'
