Queen Elizabeth II visits horse show after health concerns

A smiling Queen Elizabeth II was photographed watching the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Friday, allaying some fears about health problems that caused her to miss the opening of the UK parliament earlier this week for the first time in almost 60 years.

The 96-year-old monarch was seen arriving at the event, one of the highlights of her year, in the front passenger seat of a Range Rover, dressed in a white blouse, blue cardigan and tinted sunglasses.

He spoke to a group of people through the open car window.

Buckingham Palace said the monarch was suffering from “episodic mobility problems” when she withdrew from the State Opening of Parliament on Tuesday.

The queen has rarely been seen in public since spending an unscheduled night in hospital last October, and has complained of difficulties standing and walking. She also contracted Covid-19 in February.

She was last seen in public at a memorial service for her late husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in March.

His health problems threaten his participation in events throughout the year to celebrate his Platinum Jubilee, marking a record 70 years on the throne.
