Queen Elizabeth II .: From marriage to knighthood

Queen Elizabeth II had two appearances on Friday: at the wedding of her granddaughter and later at the knighthood of a corona hero.

Queen Elizabeth II (94) had a really tight program this Friday. After the secret wedding of her granddaughter Princess Beatrice (31) in the All Saints Chapel on the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park, the head of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland went on to Windsor Castle with the next event. In the afternoon, she knighted British war veteran and fundraiser Tom Moore (100).

Due to the current corona pandemic, the ceremony was held outdoors while maintaining the necessary safety distance. The Queen has not been seen on public occasions for a few months because she and her husband Prince Philip (99) wanted to protect themselves from corona infection. The event was not open to the public, however, photos were later published.

Moore was given the great honor of collecting nearly 150 million euros for the NHS government health service during the corona pandemic. He promised to do 100 laps with his walker in his garden before his 100th birthday. Originally, he only wanted to win around 1000 euros for a good cause. Since this promotion, Moore has been a superstar in the UK. For his birthday, he received 125,000 cards, two Royal Air Force planes even flew over his house in greeting.
