At her beloved horse show, she inspires royal fans
After concerns about Queen Elizabeth have increased in recent days, the British queen has now made a radiant appearance.
Just a few days ago, Queen Elizabeth, 96, caused concern: she canceled the opening of parliament at short notice, one of her most important dates of the year. “The Queen continues to suffer from intermittent mobility issues,” a palace spokesman said.
The monarch seems to have overcome this push, because today, Friday, May 13, 2022, the Queen attended a horse show and not only appeared in a good mood, but also in good health.
Queen Elizabeth: cheers for the monarch
The monarch suspended the start of the Royal Windsor Horse Show on May 12 and was represented by Princess Beatrice, 33. But the Queen does not completely miss her favorite event, which she has never missed in the last 79 years.
The monarch does not miss her beloved horse show
As soon as she arrived at the horse show, Queen Elizabeth was beaming from ear to ear. Sitting in the passenger seat of her Range Rover, she smiled at the scenery and of course her beloved horses on the parade ground. After she closed the window, numerous visitors cheered with joy, as reported by the “Daily Mail”. At last the British people got to see their Queen again. That should have brought relief to many people.
Her pony takes first place
The monarch then got out of the car and made her way to the grandstand with her walking stick. There she sat next to Prince Edward, 58, Countess Sophie, 57, and Prince Philips, † 99, close confidante Penny Knatchbull, 69.
Together they watched the tournament, where riders compete in different disciplines, and chatted animatedly. In the end, Queen Elizabeth has reason to be happy: her pony named Balmoral Leia took first place in the so-called Highland Class.
Another highlight for the monarch was seeing Lady Louise Windsor, 18, drive Prince Philip’s carriage. The 96-year-old proudly watched her granddaughter’s big performance.
