The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived in Wellington at the start of their three week tour of New Zealand and Australia with their baby Prince George.
It was a full house at Sandringham as four generations gathered for the festivities on the Norfolk estate.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge looked relaxed as they made the journey to St Mary Magdalene Church on foot holding hands.
But there was no sign of Prince George as temperatures stayed just above freezing.
Wearing a tartan Alexander McQueen coat and a hat by Gina Foster, Kate smiled and waved to the crowds.
As she left the service, she stopped to chat to Cicely Howard, 75, from Great Yarmouth, who asked about the baby.

"She told me he was having a lovely day but was more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents,"
Prince George enjoys his first big day out with their royal highnesses, Mum and Dad, as he prepares to be christened by the Archbishop of Canterbury at St James' Palace in London. The heir to the heir to the heir of the throne spent most of his early life in his mother's home of Bucklebury, Berks.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have asked the following people to be Godparents to Prince George:
- Mr Oliver Baker
- Mrs David Jardine-Paterson
- Earl Grosvenor (Hugh)
- Mr Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton
- The Hon Mrs Michael Samuel
- Mrs Michael Tindall
- Mr William van Cutsem
The village of Bucklebury in Berkshire is gearing up for the christening of Prince George tomorrow - the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's son.
The ceremony will take place at St James' Palace and will be attended by close members of the family. The young prince spent the first few weeks of his life in Bucklebury at Kate Middleton's parents' home and customers at the family's local pub will be raising a toast to celebrate the occasion.
John Hayley is the owner of the Old Boot Inn in the village.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have announced that Jason Bell will be the official photographer at their sons christening tomorrow.
Prince George will have his picture taken at Clarence House following the service in the Chapel Royal.
Jason Bell is a well established portrait photographer and his work has appeared in many of the world's foremost publications.
He has received a number of awards, including The Royal Photographic Society's Terrence Donovan Award for outstanding contribution to photography.
Getty's royal photographer Chris Jackson told ITV News Michael Middleton's pictures of Prince George were "charming" and a "good all-round effort".
He said: "In the future, I would recommend taking photos in the early morning or late evening when the light is turning to give a softer light to the image but it's a good all-round effort and it's a very charming image."
The photographer who took Prince William's baby photos has praised the snaps of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge with their newborn son, Prince George.
Ian Pelham-Turner gushed he "really loved" that he could "see the love in Kate's eyes towards her father".
Michael Middleton follows a long line of photographers to have captured important images of members of the royal family.
Little is known about how much experience the British Airways flight dispatcher-turned-businessman has behind the lens, but as the first official photographs to be taken of the future king, the pictures are sure to have their place in history.
The intimate family portraits were taken in the garden of the Middleton family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, earlier this month and for Mr Middleton, they are not only of a future monarch but of his first grandchild.
Martin Keene, head of pictures at the Press Association, said the photographs were impressive. "Any photographer would have been pleased to have taken them," he said.
