THE Queen headed to church alone yesterday as anti-terror barriers were readied to protect her.
Her Majesty, 92, in cerise pink, took part in the morning service minus other major royals.

William, Kate, Harry, Meghan, Charles and Camilla all stayed at home. Prince Philip, 97, was again absent after missing the Christmas Day service.
Armed cops patrolled the estate and the Pitagone mobile barriers were thought to have been set up on four roads leading to Mary Magdalene Church.
They have not been seen at Sandringham before. Cops would not say if there had been any threat.
