Queen Elizabeth II, 90, pulled out of her Christmas Day church service through illness last week.
And social media was flooded with sick rumours that she had died earlier this week before the Crown emphatically denied them.
But the Palace confirmed Her Royal Highness was fine and just recovering from a “heavy cold”.
“The Queen is continuing to recover from her heavy cold”
Today a spokesman refused to confirm or deny whether she will be in attendance for tomorrow’s church service.
A statement reads: “The Queen is continuing to recover from her heavy cold and is still in residence at Sandringham.
“We probably will not know what is happening until the morning.”
Prince Philip, 95, was well enough to attend the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene church – which the Queen missed for the first time in 28 years.

It is believed the Queen spent most of the last week staying indoors together at Sandringham House in north Norfolk.
She has not been seen walking the 20,000 acre Royal estate as she often does when in residence, according to reports.
