There were reports earlier this year that he was pretty much bedridden. I'm pleased to see, from Beatrice's wedding and now this, that he's anything but! He looks amazing for 99.

Prince Philip didn't miss a beat. I'm so glad we had the chance to see him again looking so fit at 99 years old. Quite an amazing man.

I love how they managed to handle the ceremony during all of this.

Its great to see Prince Philip up and about doing well. We saw him in the wedding photos but this is still another step. Seeing him up walking and interacting with the soldiers. Great to see him in good spirits.

Its great that Camilla got to take over his colonel in chief position.

I was just musing to myself; a couple of years ago, we'll all remember, the Queen made a balcony appearance with seven people (including herself), a subtle pointer to the way forward: The Queen & Duke, Charles & Camilla, William & Kate, and Harry.
Now things have changed so much. The Duke retired, The Queen semi-retired (not through any wish of her own, but she is, in effect, retired too), Harry (gone). But we have a new 'Group of Seven' out and about, keeping the Monarchy alive Ė Charles & Camilla, William & Kate, Anne, Ed and Sophie...

To mark World Sight Day 2020 Queen Elizabeth joined the Countess of Wessex "for a video call earlier this week with eye health professionals working on the ground to deliver eye care across the Commonwealth":

Even though no picture has been release yet, it's so lovely to see the Queen in public again, after Captain Sir Thomas Moore's investiture at Windsor.

Thank you very much iceflower for taking your times to find these newly and freshly released images. The quality does not matter at this point.

The Queen looks lovely in light pink. The Duke of Cambridge's coat looks great as well

Well actually there's been strong criticism in the last few hours of the Queen and Prince William not wearing masks on their engagement by such guardians of public propriety as Piers Morgan of the DM and others, in the light of the strict new regulations now pertaining in England.

I refuse to link the DM but it's there all the same, and for once he's not criticising the Sussexes.

Yes I have read the criticism, but based upon the official government guidelines the Queen, Duke of Cambridge and all present at the event were adhering to the current COVID 19 rules for outdoor events. Those events do not require attendees to wear a mask.


https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus


Quote:
  • <li class="covid__instruction-list-item"> Wash hands keep washing your hands regularly <li class="covid__instruction-list-item">
    <li class="covid__instruction-list-item"> Cover face wear a face covering in enclosed spaces <li class="covid__instruction-list-item">
    Make space stay at least 2 metres apart - or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions
I will admit that it can be rather confusing when we take into consideration that what is required in one nation differs from what is required in another.


When we saw other members of the BRF attending events in enclosed spaces during the past weeks, they were following the government's regulations and wore masks.

They were in a tent, not really outside in open air. Also in a few pictures there was some lack of social distancing on the desired 6 feet. Naturally on this day with the new rules being announced there would be criticism. Honestly though it would have just made more sense to set an example as the leader she is to wear one, but that’s neither here nor there.

Indeed yes HM was adhering to the guidelines. If the government change the rules we may well see her in a mask.

I agree. The BRF much like their counterparts in Europe, Asia and the Middle East will follow the guidelines issued by their respective national or provincial/state governments when conducting visits. If the British government requires a mask for outdoor events, then I expect that the Queen and the working members of the BRF will be wearing masks.

There is definitely no legal requirement to wear a mask outdoors in England (or in other parts of the UK, although it's reported that that may soon change in Scotland), and it's only required indoors in certain circumstances.


The new rules have got nothing to do with masks. All that's changed today is that certain areas have been reclassified as high risk, so people there are no longer allowed to meet indoors. Neither Berkshire (where Windsor is) nor Wiltshire (where they are today) are amongst those areas anyway.


Piers Morgan moans about everything!

I think at 94, HM still should have worn a mask...and if William wasnít, then he should have, too...
