PropertyShe hasn’t been in the public eye much since she had to spend a hospital night in October, but this past weekend’s horse show at Windsor Castle didn’t want Queen Elizabeth, 96, to miss a thing. Since the founding of the Royal Windsor Horse Show 79 years ago, the Queen has missed no one.
According to the British court, Elizabeth is experiencing “mobility problems”, which has forced her to cancel some important events recently. For example, she had to fail last Tuesday for the first time at the start of the British Parliamentary year.
a standing ovation
The horse show was the first of many major events on Sunday night to mark the 70th anniversary of her accession to the British throne. The Queen received a standing ovation from the crowd as she walked independently, using a cane, to her seat at the Gallery, flanked by her son, Prince Edward, Duke of Wessex.
The Queen had an amazing program of horse shows, military parades and performances by artists from all over the world. The meeting was attended by Helen Mirren, Joan Collins and Tom Cruise. The musical accompaniment was provided by Gregory Porter, Andrew Lloyd Webber and singer Katherine Jenkins.
The show focused on highlights from Elizabeth’s platinum anniversary and paid tribute to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth. Prince Charles also spoke about his mother. He praised the way she has always been able to present herself and the way she handles various challenges in life.
The Queen clearly enjoyed the performances and made a delightful impression. At the end of the evening, Elizabeth was taken from the party site in a Land Rover. She walked a short distance from her seat to the car and spoke briefly with some of the gallery staff along the way.
