HM has seemed so much more animated and alive in her recent outings!

From the G7 to now.

Makes you wonder.

Well she did spend much of the last year cooped up, barely interacting with anyone in person….I imagine it’s nice to get out and about. She’s also getting to see her family in person.

I get that.

It's just that each time she's written about now, the fact that she's 95 year old widow is stressed; add on the troubled family dynamics. (Of which I'm sure she's experienced worse in her 70 year reign.)

The tone from so-called insiders and RRs is always the Queen is 'angry', 'sad', 'devastated', 'shocked' insert adjective here.

But from her animation with world leaders - including her jibe at Matt Hancock -, her foot tapping at Trooping the Colour, her larger than life smile e.t.c, I suspect the reality does not match the narrative being imposed.

I could imagine that her sorrows about the duke and his health may have been bigger than anyone suspects. To worry about a beloved person, about THE one person, can be, sorry for my words, goddamn hard.
Now she is of course missing him and still grieving him, but I am sure HM knows, as the intelligent and reasonable person she is, that there is no need to worry for his well-being anymore. Being in this good spirits as she is atm, smiling and all, does not mean that she (or any other person who is in the same situation, having lost a loved one of many years) is happy about not having this person around anymore. In germany we say "Es ist eine Last von ihr abgefallen", I don't know if there is an equivalent in the english language. It means that a huge burden has fallen off of someone. It does not mean that an ill person is a burden, but the worrying about this person is.
I have not known the duke in person, but I could imagine that he would have wanted her to be exactly that way she is atm.

I hope my words hit you on the right spot, you know that english is not my mother tongue.

Besides from that, I am happy to see HM in such good moods these days. Laughter is the best medicine.

I understand exactly what you're saying.

And yeah the Duke at 99, lived a long & consequential life.
Sometimes death is a release.

That must be one of the first times I've seen anything she's written, not just signed.

Like Malta under siege, the NHS was equally valiant.

I don't think anything official was said about it. It's lovely to see her looking so well, and to see that Ken Barlow (who's been in Coronation Street since it started in 1960, but the actor has been having a long break) came in specially for the occasion!

She's also been to Manchester Cathedral, to meet representatives of community groups who've been doing important work during the pandemic. I wish I'd known she was coming :-) , but I suppose they don't want to release details in advance because they don't want crowds gathering whilst social distancing rules are in force.

That is what the media reported - as they did after he retired. She, however, probably always had other ideas. She has done a number of solo engagements since Philip's death.

I have never understood why she might need to have other royals accompany her, unless she was meeting a large group of people, and needed to have other members of the family "work the room". She has plenty of officials accompany her, and she always has a Lady-in-waiting, who can help look after her physical well-being and comfort.

She seemed on good form today and as actually seemed that for all her appearances for the last couple of weeks.

It's always fun when the royals visit Corrie or Albert Square. It's also great that she visited the Cathedral to meet covid workers and celebrate 600 years.
