Queen Elizabeth II
She accepts award without walking stick
Queen Elizabeth II received the Archbishop of Canterbury at Windsor Castle. The monarch did without her walking stick.
Royal fans should see this as a good sign: Queen Elizabeth II (96) welcomed Justin Welby (66) at Windsor Castle this Tuesday and did not have to use her walking stick. The Archbishop of Canterbury paid a visit to the monarch, who wore a cream dress with a pink floral pattern, to present her with a 70th jubilee gift.
In an Instagram post The Royal Family says the Archbishop presented the Queen with a special Canterbury Cross “in recognition of her service to the Church of England for over seventy years”. Welby recently missed the anniversary service on June 3 in St. Paul’s Cathedral for Queen Elizabeth II due to a corona infection.
The monarch herself was also absent from the thanksgiving service after the Trooping the Color parade and was represented by her family. “The Queen thoroughly enjoyed today’s birthday parade, but she felt a little uncomfortable,” the palace said at the time. The Queen, who has performed with a cane on several occasions, has recently had to cancel several official appointments due to mobility issues.
