94-year-old Queen Elizabeth II’s horseback ride for the first time after confinement

London / Queen Elizabeth II, 94, went out this weekend for the first time since the confinement began to ride a horse in the vicinity of Windsor Castle, according to photographs released Monday by the British media.

The sovereign was seen on the back of the pony called “Balmoral Fern” on the land surrounding Windsor (outside London), considered her favorite residence.

It is there that the British monarch has isolated herself along with her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, 98, and a small group of employees during the confinement imposed by the Executive in late March to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

In the last snapshot taken of Elizabeth II, she was seen getting out of a vehicle from Buckingham Palace (London) on March 19, along with her two dogs, Candy and Vulcan.

The Queen fulfilled her official obligations until the day before the confinement measures were enacted, although she held her last weekly hearing with Prime Minister Boris Johnson by phone rather than face-to-face.

In the new images, the sovereign is seen wearing a colorful scarf around her head and a full tweed outfit, white gloves, and boots.

Elizabeth II also spent her birthday on April 21 confined together with Prince Philip and many celebration events had to be canceled this year due to the pandemic. (June 1, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
