She accessorised her outfit with a diamond bow brooch, black shoes and her signature black handbag. 

During the visit, the Queen, who looked in high spirits, spoke with some of the members of the staff at the base, which has more than 3600 working personnel. 

The airbase provides engineering support across the RAF and is home to the F-35B Lightning, the fifth-generation combat aircraft recently deployed by the Royal Navy. 

During her visit, the Queen also took a closer look at the Integrated Training Centre, which provides future pilots with thorough training and enables them to qualify as a Lightning Plane pilot.

Her Majesty, who took part in World War II, also watched a demonstration of virtual training in the Air System Maintenance Trainer Classroom.

This week is expected to be the last the Queen will spend at Sandringham this winter. 

The monarch travelled to Norfolk via train, as she does every year, on December 20, the day after she delivered the Queen's Speech in the House of Lords during the last State Opening of Parliament.  

The monarch usually remains in Sandringham until February 6, the day marking the anniversary of the death of her father King George VI and her accession to the throne.
