Queen Elizabeth II News – Monarch only smiles as she makes a rare public appearance at the Windsor Horse Show

The Queen smiled yesterday as she received a standing ovation at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The 96-year-old monarch appeared delighted by her first public appearance, after she pulled out of the State Opening of Parliament on Monday with mobility issues.

And she was delighted when her horse Balmoral Leia was named the winner of the Highland Class 64 event, and later supreme champion.

Despite health concerns, The Monarch looked fine and spent nearly an hour in the parade ring near his Windsor Castle home, and spent an extended period talking to retired racehorse trainer Henrietta Knight.

Colin Brooks, chairman of the show’s committee, shared a joke with the Queen and her chief fiance, Terry Pendry, was on hand to offer his advice.
