The Queen permits Sandringham grounds to be used for drive-through movie event

One of the Queen’s treasured private estates will be opened up to the public for a drive-through movie night.

Movie fans will be allowed to enter the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk for a socially-distanced cinema experience on Friday September 25

Tickets cost £32.50 for a series of films beginning with 1917 and including Rocketman, Toy Story, The Greatest Showman and A Star Is Born, reports MirrorOnline.

An online listing for the event reads: “Enjoy your favourite movie from the comfort of your car in the wonderful setting of Sandringham Country Park.

“We have selected some great street food vendors to join us at each performance. Upgrade your ticket for just £7.50 to add a deckchair, table, popcorn and separate area to the side of your vehicle.”

Sandringham was purchased by Queen Victoria in 1892 and is now privately-owned by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.

But it is highly unlikely that film-enthusiasts will bump into the Queen, who is currently enjoying a break at Balmoral.

She is not expected to return to Sandringham until Christmas.

While Her Majesty has a large team of people running the properties she inherited, the decision to open up the estate follows a relatively tough few months.

The Royal Family has lost an estimated £18million because of difficulties caused by the coronavirus lockdown, it has been reported.

Price Harry and his wife Meghan have also caused headaches for the Queen after revealing their latest money-spinning deal with Netflix.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have inked an agreement said to be worth £75m to produce documentaries and films for the streaming giant.

The Mirror reported that the Royal Family would cast an eye over any contracts agreed by the Los Angeles-based couple.
