Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was left chuckling as her embarrassed chauffeur was unable to start her luxury claret-coloured Bentley, for a minute, after she attended a church service in Sandringham, on Sunday.

The car finally started after a seventh attempt outside St Mary Magdalene Church, a quarter mile drive from Sandringham House, where she is spending her traditional winter break with her husband Prince Philip, 91, the Daily Mail newspaper reported.

The incident happened in front of about 150 well-wishers, after the 55-minute morning service at the estate church.
