Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II (95) was in a good mood at several appointments at Windsor Castle this week. The monarch, who has repeatedly had to cancel appointments for health reasons in the past six months and recently had a corona infection, is increasingly relying on a walker.
With a beaming smile, a handbag on her arm and a cane, the Queen welcomed the managing director of the porcelain and enamel manufacturer Halcyon Days and her husband on Thursday. The company has long supplied the royal family with valuable crockery and other objects. The Queen actually wanted to visit the producer in 2020 for his 70th company anniversary, but the Queen’s visit had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
Elizabeth II is now leaving the house less and less. She canceled her participation in a Commonwealth Day service last week at short notice. It is now eagerly awaited whether she will be present at a memorial service for her husband Prince Philip, who died almost a year ago at the age of 99, next Monday.
