It’s Good news as the Queen was seen looking really well while making her first public engagement since missing Remembrance Sunday.
The Queen has held a face to face audience with General Sir Nick Carter, the Chief of the Defence Staff, at Windsor Castle – looking really well.
UK residents and the rest of the world welcomed the news as the inspirational Monarch went about her duties in her first official engagements since missing the Remembrance Sunday service.
The 95-year-old monarch has served the UK and Commonwealth for nearly 70 years, inspiring millions of children, visiting schools and helping the poorest.
She met with Gen Sir Nick on Wednesday afternoon – three days after she missed the national Remembrance service at the Cenotaph due to a sprained back.
The Queen, who is also head of the armed forces, was pictured standing as she greeted Gen Sir Nick in the Windsor Castle’s Oak Room with Candy the Corgi running about his feet.
Concerns about the monarch’s health were raised last month, when she spent a night in a London hospital after being admitted for medical tests.
In late October, palace officials said the monarch had been told by doctors to rest for two weeks and only take on light duties.
Those concerns intensified after she pulled out at the last minute from Sunday’s national Remembrance service to pay tribute to Britain’s war dead.
Buckingham Palace officials, who had said it was the monarch’s “firm intention” to make the event, announced on Sunday that she decided she had to miss the ceremony because she sprained her back.
Elizabeth is Britain’s longest-lived and longest-reigning monarch.
She is due to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee – marking 70 years on the throne – next year.
During her rest period, the queen has continued to work from home, doing desk-based duties and spending most of her time at Windsor Castle, west of London.
She cancelled plans to attend the U.N. climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, sending a video message instead to world leaders attending this month’s conference.
She also cancelled an earlier trip to Northern Ireland.
The Queen held an in-person meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week.
