Queen Elizabeth II uses cane to walk into Westminster Abbey

I have never seen her smile so much. It seems in every picture she is now smiling. Philip must have really constrained her.

For some reason she kept holding the cane up to Anne's face and sniggering.

Why not? I always think these meetings stand a better chance of succeeding if the prime minister is a walker.

You're funny, r19, but seriously, I think it's plausible to wonder if Charles dreads Q E II's death. He knows waiting. True, he's more than prepared to be King, but still.

And no one should dare say that mentioning Meghan isn’t appropriate in this thread after all that Meghan has viciously done to the Queen and her family, causing the Queen so much stress that has been detrimental to her health.

Stress caused my Meghan? QEII knows she will be followed in to the monarchy by her son the first divorced monarch in history. Then there is the next son, accused molester of underage girls. The old gal is 95 years old, it is a miracle she hasn't needed a cane years ago other than when she had knee surgery but ;yeah you blame Meghan.

It's being said in the British Media that apparently she was concerned about the floor in Westminster Abbey (where today's engagement was held) because it's slightly slippery due to the polish they use. But she still got out of the car unaided and was still pretty spry. I mean lets face it, if you make it to 95 with your marbles intact and you're not shitting yourself, you're in great shape.

R1 - Ffs, she's been smiling continually since she was about 18 in the public eye.
What Philip very likely did was insist that she not to go into a months of mourning and to go on doing her job like the trouper she's always been.

R1 I actually don't think it has much to do with Philip. I think the Queen (like a lot of elderly people) is just thrilled to be getting out of the house again after having been locked down for over a year and a half. The Queen is a workaholic. In 2002 when her sister and mother died in quick succession, she responded by increasing her the number of public engagements. She does not like sitting around and dwelling on things.

R34 - She - wasn't - underage. She was 17 the age of sexual consent. There is not even an issue of statutory rape in this case.
Wash, rinse, repeat: she was not underage.
As for Meghan - whataboutery doesn't cancel out the fact that she and Harry put the boot in to the old lady as she was spending what she knew were the last days she would have with a beloved spouse of 73 years. Instead, she had to get up and deal with the lying bullshit that her grandson and his grifter wife, whom the Queen and Charles had treated with enormous warmth and generosity, were spewing on international television to big themselves up and justify how they were treating the very institution that made them marketable.
Harry, by the way, beat up sex workers whilst in the military. That was nicely hushed up.
If you're going to open threads about the Queen, don't expect her family not to come up.

I imagine the situation with Andrew is extremely stressful for the Queen. That doesn't mean the stress of the situation with Harry and Meghan (as outlined above by R43) is somehow cancelled out. It's possible to have more than one source of stress in life.

She really needs to abdicate or, at the very least, unofficially retire and let Charles reign as regent. Ninety-five is just too old, and her son isn't getting any younger.

R46 British Monarchs don't abdicate (only six have abdicated in 1000+ years...all of which were in disgrace) and Charles can only act as monarch if the Queen becomes mentally incapacitated. I don't disagree that a 95+ year old being replaced by a 70+ year old is in the best interest of the institution, but that's what is going to happen.
|by Anonymous||reply 48||October 13, 2021 2:24 AM|
Why should she abdicate? She’s able to do everything.
I think she looks lovely for an old gal, and she’s competent.

The Queen and that drip Charles have tried very hard over the years to embrace climate change. The Queen's Commonwealth Canopy has about 35 countries involved in saving old forest and planting new. Charles has been Organic at is home Highgrove House for over 35 years. Prince Philip was very much into Nature Reserves and the saving of wildlife.
