La regina Elisabetta fa un'apparizione a sorpresa al Windsor Horse Show tra "problemi di mobilità episodici"

Il monarca regnante è stato cacciato dalla sua casa del castello di Windsor per vedere tre dei suoi pony Fell partecipare alla gara. La 96enne era tutta sorrisi mentre la guardava comodamente dalla sua Range Rover. She later became overjoyed when one of her ponies, Balmoral Leia, won the Highland Class.

The beaming queen dressed down for the outing, sporting a sweater and collared shirt. She completed her look with bright pink lipstick. After being driven to the main area, she was spotted walking slowly to a lift using a walking stick. She sat down in the stands with her son Prince Edward. Her great-granddaughter, Lady Louise Windsor, was in the saddle of Prince Philip’s carriage as she led a parade through the arena.

It is the first time Elizabeth has been seen in public since she attended the Service of Thanksgiving honoring her late husband in March. The Windsor Horse Show is one of her favorite annual events and she typically attends.

The queen’s decision to delegate her role to Charles is likely to be seen by the public as evidence that a transition is underway, with the monarch remaining on the throne but turning over more responsibilities to her eldest son.

She has only missed the speech twice before. First was in 1959, during the late stages of her pregnancy with Principe Andrew and again in 1963 before Edward’s birth. On both occasions, Parliament was opened by a royal commission, with the speech delivered by the presiding member.

Horses have played a central role in Elizabeth’s life. She was given her first horse, a Shetland pony, quando era appena 4 Anni. She is known for her cheering at horse racing events, which she frequently attends. While an avid rider, she reportedly hasn’t ridden since early September due to mobility issues.
