Queen Elizabeth, 95, has been seen attending her first engagement since spraining her back, last week. The injury caused her to pull out from attending a Remembrance Sunday Service.
Meeting in Windsor Castle’s Oak Room with British Military’s chief of staff, General Nick Carter, the Queen and Carter were photographed as they chatted. Carter is planning to step down from his role at the end of November.
The Queen wore a gorgeous green, white and mustard 70s inspired floral dress for the occasion, a very different ensemble to her usual bright matching suit sets.
Adorning her neck were two delicate pearl chains, which matched her simple pearl studs perfectly. Queen Elizabeth also wore neat black loafers for the occasion.
However, it isn’t Queen Lizzie’s clothing that has drawn attention to the meet, but rather her face. The long-serving monarch looks weary and sombre, the lighting unforgiving as she speaks to Gen. Carter.
This meeting comes just days after The Queen’s most recent string of health issues were resolved. Since the passing of her husband, Prince Philip in April, Her Majesty has experienced quite the health battle.
In mid-October, the Queen had an overnight stay in hospital which forced her to slow down. She was given doctor’s orders to rest for two weeks, cancelling her trip to Northern Ireland in the meantime. She was also instructed to give up her late-night television bonanza, with The Times reporting “she is knackered.”
In early November, the Queen was seen with a walking cane for the first time in nearly 20 years, as she attended an event of thanks for the Royal British Legion.
We wish her all the best as she eases back into her Royal duties.
