This should (slightly) reassure fans of the British crown. Queen Elizabeth II looked all smiles on Friday, 13 May at a prestigious equestrian competition in Windsor (United Kingdom) after she missed the opening of the new parliamentary session due to health reasons. Obsessed with horses, the 96-year-old sovereign was seen relaxing upon arrival at the “Royal Windsor Horse Show” near Windsor Castle in west London, where she now lives.

Wearing tinted glasses and a navy blue cardigan, she sat in the front passenger seat of a Range Rover. He was seen exchanging a few words and joking with a small group of people from the rolled up window of the car. Several of his horses competed, including the 5-year-old gray mare Balmoral Leia, who won and was later crowned supreme champion.

Following her mare victory, the Queen returned to Windsor Castle, then later returned to the Horse Show where she joined the Earl and Countess of Wessex. The queen was seen using a cane as she was going to her seat in the royal compartment.

On the advice of her doctors and due to difficulties in commuting, Elizabeth II had left Tuesday to deliver the traditional speech from the throne, marking a new parliamentary session, only for the third time in her seventy-year reign. He was replaced for the first time by 73-year-old Crown Prince Charles, who under the influence of his health problems brought a new sign of the ongoing transition to the British monarchy.

Her last public appearance was on March 29, when she attended a service of thanksgiving for her late husband, Prince Philip, who died in 2021 at the age of 99.
