If on Wednesday Queen Elizabeth II could be seen to resume her official commitments with the reception of the Chief of Staff, General Sir Nick Carter, at Windsor Castle, now it seems that the return of the monarch to routine is taking hold, after he attended the christenings of his great-grandchildren on Sunday, that of Princess Eugenia’s son and that of Zara Tindall. In the photo published by the British news agency PA, Elizabeth II could be seen leaving Windsor Great Park in the back seat of a car, wearing a pistachio green hat.

In what has been her first family event since her temporary rest due to health issues was announced on October 20, Queen Elizabeth II, 95, has attended the baptisms of Princess Eugenia’s first-born, August – born in February – and the third child of his eldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall, born in May and whose name is Lucas Philip. The ceremony, held at the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Prak – about three miles from Windsor Castle and where the Queen Mother resided from 1953 until her death in 2002 – was also attended by Prince Andrew, father of Princess Eugenie of York, and the Dukes of Cambridge, according to the newspaper The Guardian.

The Queen’s temporary layoff due, according to the official version, to a back injury, coupled with her advanced age has been the subject of concern both inside and outside the UK. During the tour that he made last week through Jordan and Egypt with his wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Prince Charles of England was asked about his mother’s health, to which he responded at the beginning with a brief “it’s fine. , Thank you so much”. Later, he humorously added that “once you get to 95, it’s not as easy as it used to be” and that he’s already “pretty bad” at 73, referring to his own age. After having to cancel a trip to Northern Ireland and her attendance at COP26, held in Glasgow, one of the most notorious absences of the queen in the last sounded ones was that of the acts of Remembrance Day.

The new public appearances of Queen Elizabeth II occur at a time when the monarch, according to several newspapers, including The Guardian, feels very unhappy about a documentary that premieres this Monday on the BBC and that deals with the relationship of princes Guillermo and Enrique with the media. As the newspaper tells The Sun, Elizabeth II, her son Prince Charles, and her grandson, Prince William, do not rule out taking the British network before the audiovisual regulator Ofcom and the family would not have been able to see the tape before it was broadcast. According to the BBC, the documentary in question, which consists of two parts, covers from 2018 to 2021, a period in which events as important as the birth of Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, the first-born of the Dukes of Sussex, have taken place. , and the decision of these same to park their real obligations and move to the United States.
