Listed below are some pictures of Queen Elizabeth II out and about on Sunday. For the second Sunday in a row, she managed to go to church. Which is trigger for celebration, as a result of it sounds just like the Queen was actually, actually sick over the vacations. She was so sick she skipped church on Christmas Day and New 12 months’s Day and solely returned to church companies on January eighth, which is when she was joined by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Middletons (plus Terribly Wealthy James Matthews). For this Sunday’s church go to, she was joined by her husband and a few of her older-gal associates, it appears. Folks Magazine instructed that the Queen may need been in mourning for her late brother-in-law:
It was a somber time, however Queen Elizabeth II appeared to be in good spirits on Sunday morning as she attended a church service following the dying of her former brother-in-law Lord Snowdon — who died on Friday at 86. The 90-year-old monarch wore a royal purple gown, matching coat and hat with a black flower on it — and carried her signature clear umbrella to defend her from rain as she entered the mass at St. Mary’s Church in Flitcham, England.
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was by her aspect in a protracted inexperienced tench coat and gray pants. The 2 lately battled “heavy colds,” forcing the Queen to cancel a few of her annual holidays plans on the finish of final yr, together with a practice journey to Sandringham Property and her Christmas Day and New 12 months’s church companies.
Lord Snowdon’s son David Armstrong-Jones joined the Queen for the church journey. The 55-year-old second Earl of Snowdon, whose mom is the late Princess Margaret, wore a coat over his matching swimsuit. His mother and father wed in 1960, and had two youngsters earlier than divorcing in 1978. Princess Margaret died in 2002 after struggling a stroke. Sunday’s 45-minute service was performed by the Rt. Rev. Paul Williams, Bishop of Southwell and Nottingham, Japanese Day by day Press reported. After church, the Queen and Duke visited a lady and her household at a cottage subsequent door to St Mary’s earlier than returning to their Vary Rover for the drive again to Sandringham Home.
I all the time overlook about Princess Margaret’s children, the Queen’s solely niece and nephew. There’s David Armstrong-Jones and Woman Sarah Chatto. I believe each of them are nonetheless fairly near the Queen? And I positively assume the Queen nonetheless misses her sister and her mom terribly – they each handed away in 2002. However did the Queen have a lot affection for the primary Lord Snowden? Eh. Who is aware of?
In any case, it’s good to see the Queen up and about. She appears to be like wholesome, though that shade of purple in all probability makes most individuals look a bit extra vivacious.
