The Queen has been seen for the first time since her son Prince Andrew sued a trial by jury after denying sex abuse allegations brought against him.

Her Majesty was seen arriving back at Wood Farm on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk after a trip to see her horses in nearby stables.

The 95-year-old monarch was spotted wearing a headscarf and was the front seat passenger in a Range Rover that drove her to and from the cottage where she is staying for the next few weeks.

Just last night, Andrew officially denied to a court a catalog of sex abuse allegations brought by his accuser Virginia Giuffre.

The Duke of York’s legal team filed court documents in New York, stating he “hereby demands a trial by jury on all causes of action asserted in the complaint.”

In an 11-page response to Giuffre’s lawsuit, the Duke of York repeatedly states he “lacks sufficient information to admit or deny” most of her allegations.

The Prince refutes her major claim of “sexual abuse” and “rape” when she was “under the age of 18 years old.”

The Queen went to stay at Wood Farm, where her late husband Prince Philip spent the later years of his life, on Sunday after making an emotional pilgrimage from Windsor Castle, where she spent the Christmas period.

The couple lived apart in the final years of his life, with the Duke of Edinburgh based at Wood Farm while the Queen stayed at Buckingham Palace. She would regularly travel up to see him when she didn’t have engagements.

The couple had only a small team of staff at the Farm, and they didn’t wear uniforms as Philip didn’t like the formality.

The five-bed cottage, which is tucked away on a quiet part of the estate overlooking the sea, is said to be where they were able to be a normal couple. The Queen is believed to have cooked and done the washing up during her stays there.

Before Philip moved in permanently, Wood Farm was regularly used by other members of the royal family. The Duchess of Cambridge stayed there during visits to the estate before she married Prince William.

It’s also where Sarah Ferguson was made to stay after her divorce from Andrew. She wasn’t allowed to attend the Christmas celebrations in the ‘Big House’, but wanted to be nearby to see daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
