Queen Elizabeth was crowned exactly 67 years ago, and today, at the age of 94, she showed us that she is still very vital and engages in all possible leisure activities.
The Queen was photographed for the first time after isolation due to coronavirus while riding her 14-year-old pony Balmoral Fern.
Throughout her reign, Elizabeth was known as a passionate lover and breeder of purebred racehorses, so she could hardly wait to get out of her chambers of Windsor Castle, where she spent time in quarantine. She was filmed in a good mood, and she did not miss the opportunity to dress appropriately and tastefully in a colorful outfit that contrasted the gloomy British weather.
Her last appearance in public was on March 19, on her way from Buckingham Palace to Windsor, when her pets, dogs Candy and Vulcan, kept her company. Over the past few months, she has held her duties and meetings by telephone, and has given several public addresses that have been broadcast on British television, and have been watched by millions of viewers from around the world.
Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne of the United Kingdom since June 2, 1953, and was crowned at Westminster Abbey in London. She ascended the throne as a 25-year-old after the death of her father, King George VI. A vote of confidence was given to her on February 6, 1952, and the Executive Council proclaimed her Queen shortly after.
Her coronation was held with a year delay due to a tradition that respected a certain period from the monarch’s death to the holding of solemn ceremonies and celebrations in the country.
