Elizabeth II made a very remarkable exit this Friday, July 15, as revealed by Rebecca English on her Twitter account. The sovereign appeared with a cane.
Elizabeth II is a personality much appreciated by the British who care a lot about her health. Each appearance of the sovereign is scrutinized in the smallest detail since, aged 96, she has chained cancellations over the months. Buckingham Palace had also indicated that she had spent one night in hospital in October 2021. Something to worry the royal family but also the British, who are waiting for news from him on a daily basis. This Friday, July 15, she made an exit that was very noticed. As Rebecca English revealed on her Twitter account, the Queen of England appeared “with a cane but in great shape“, she writes first. The purpose of this outing? To go not far from Windsor Castle to make a surprise visit to Thames Hospice, a charity that cares for patients and their loved ones in East Berks & South Bucks. For this special occasion, Elizabeth II was accompanied by her daughter, Princess Anne. It was with a big smile on her face that the sovereign got out of her car.
This is not the first official appearance of Elizabeth II in recent days. On July 12, she was seen in the salons of Windsor alongside Prince Charles. A special occasion too, since she presented the prestigious George Cross to the representatives of the NHS, the UK National Health Service. During this, four crosses were personally awarded by Queen Elizabeth II of England. Each nation, England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, received one. This is a very prestigious distinction which was instituted in September 1940 by Prince George VI. For this special occasion, the sovereign wore a floral dress and, despite the health problems she may have had in recent months, she appeared very smiling and without a cane. In addition, she also dared a little joke, as revealed by the Daily Mail. Faced with Maggie Keena, the first to be vaccinated, the sovereign asked her: “Are you still alive?“. A question that greatly amused those present.
Elizabeth II: why is her state of health worrying?
The state of health of Elizabeth II worries the British since the queen has chained the cancellations in recent months. Last February, she had been tested positive for Covid-19 after coming into contact with her son, Prince Charles, who had also contracted the virus. Quickly placed under surveillance, Buckingham Palace had assured that Elizabeth II did not present “no symptoms”. During the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which took place from June 2 to 5, Elizabeth II made a few appearances to greet the British and reassure them about her state of health. She was appeared from the balcony of his palace and greeted the 1,800 soldiers and musicians present. A moment that had not gone unnoticed since Elizabeth II had shown herself very close to Prince Louis. While she was not present for all the occasions, Kate Middleton had assured that the sovereign was only “tired“but that she had gone from”good times” during the celebrations. Reassuring news.
