- Queen Elizabeth II attends recent garden show
- The Queen gets driven around instead of walking
- This causes her health to be called into question
At 96, it's no wonder Queen Elizabeth II isn't quite as agile as she used to be. However, her appearances around her Platinum Jubilee have caused concern, because if she hasn't had to cancel her participation in the events, she has needed mobility aids.
The Queen seen driving around in good spirits
Queen Elizabeth II used a buggy for her visit to the Chelsea Flower Show. With the golf cart-like vehicle, the monarch went through the rows of flowers and plants, which she was allowed to inspect again before the official opening. As the Daily Mail reports, the vehicle was equipped with all sorts of amenities, including a mini fridge, screen and Bluetooth speakers.
Even though the Queen didn't seem to be able to walk very well, she showed her most beautiful smile! In addition to the Queen, other royals also attended the event— albeit on foot. Prince Edward and his wife, Countess Sophie appeared, along with Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi. Beatrice in particular impressed in a tight-fitting white and blue dress, which emphasized her amazing figure.
Nevertheless, all eyes were on Queen Elizabeth II, whose anniversary was also celebrated with plant formations at the Chelsea Flower Show. Public appearances for her are rare these days, and she was last seen at a London train station earlier on in this month, where she unveiled the brand-new Elizabeth Line. Hopefully the Queen's buggy ride was just to allow her some rest, and isn't an indication that her health has further declined!
