The service comes ahead of the Queen’s televised Christmas speech, which she will use to hail terror-hit cities Manchester and London.

Looking back over 2017, she will say that both cities’ “powerful identities” have “shone through” adversity.

During her televised address to the nation, the Queen will also pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh, who has retired from solo public duties, praising his “support and unique sense of humour”.
