I dont think she looks refreshed - she looks tired.

Yes, Her Majesty looks really tired. Maybe she's sleepy. Pictures like that always remind me that The Queen is really close to become a nonagenarian.

She may look a bit tired but the swelling in her legs and feet has gone down. She's approaching 88 so...

I've been on those trains - very "hard" ride so that's probably why she looks tired.

She has been looking tired and worn down since the Jubilee and Philip's illness then - a sign of both her own age, his age and the real awareness of her own mortality. She also, I believe, has arthritis which can be very painful and makes people less than cheery.

Marine2109, From the article
Clash of the Titans: The Queen closes in on Victoria's reign

Our own Queen, who seems to have picked her servants and courtiers, with singular care;
What a nice statement about Elizabeth II!!

I agree with both you and Cepe. That stride still has drive, though. Gosh, I admire her inner strength!

I think one of the key reasons she is looking different is because her hair has not been done the way it usually is. We are so used to seeing her hair perfectly done that when she does appear without it being so, it is quite noticeable.

The hair looks the same to me - but she can't hide the bags under the eyes and the puffy cheeks - both signs of illness and tiredness.

I agree. She looks older. Her face has changed I think. Not surprising since we are all getting older every day. I think it is more noticeable when we are older maybe.
