On 6 February 1952, in preparation for the anniversary of her father George VI, the Queen made a special trip by helicopter followed by a short drive to Norfolk by car.

A source told the Mail on Sunday last week: ‘Everything is being arranged for the Queen’s visit.

‘We’ve been told she’ll be staying at Wood Farm instead of the main house, which is good because she’s always had a special place in her heart.’

The Queen has lived at the cottage before, but this will be her first since Philip’s death in April last year.

She last visited the estate in early November and usually spent the weekend after Halloween at Sandringham with Philip and didn’t want to miss the occasion.

She is expected to spend the accession day with her family on February 6 during an extended holiday at the cottage and celebrate her platinum jubilee in private.

The Queen was only 25 years old and was on holiday in Kenya with Prince Philip at the time of her father’s death – making her the first monarch to ascend the throne in 200 years.

His Diamond Jubilee will be celebrated in June with a public holiday for four days.

When Philip retired from public duties in 2017 at the age of 95 – today the age of the Queen – Sandringham was the place he called home.

With typical enthusiasm, he set about revamping Wood Farm as a retirement bolt-hole.

He oversaw a project to set up a new kitchen and spent his days reading, writing and painting.

On a tour of Sandringham, young Princess Elizabeth and Margaret would cycle around the property and be joined by their mother and father overseeing the harvest.  (Above, Elizabeth with her father, George VI, at Sandringham in 1943)

The Queen, when she was not on duty in London, traveled to live with Philip at the Cottage and it was there that the two could live more like a ‘normal’ couple than at any other time of their reign. .

Away from the clothed servants, Philip insisted that the employees of the Wood Farm – a page, housekeeper, chef and footman – wear simple clothes.

Whether by helicopter or car, the 140-mile journey from Windsor to Sandringham is more to be endured than enjoyed – especially for a 95-year-old man.

Andrew could lose his round-the-clock police protection early next month after being deported as a frontline royal.

Sources say his security is being thoroughly reviewed by Scotland Yard and the Home Office, following the Queen’s decision last week to strip her son of his remaining military and charitable affiliations and bar him from using his HRH title. .

A close aide of the duke has now claimed he can restore his royal patronage if the queen wins a civil case against her while she is still alive – but it would have been ‘underestimated’ if Charles were monarch.

Andrew is currently facing a court battle as a private citizen in New York after being banned from using the styling ‘HRH’.

Judge Louise Kaplan made a sensational ruling earlier this month that the Queen’s second son could be prosecuted over claims she sexually assaulted Ms Giuffre when she was 17 – allegations Andrew vehemently denied Is.

Andrew has been hiding in Windsor as his legal team fought their case in the US and was seen today driving through the property with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who also lives in their Royal Lodge home.
