THE Queen beamed yesterday as she received a standing ovation at the Royal Windsor Horse Show.
The 96-year-old Monarch looked delighted for her first public appearance, after she pulled out of Monday’s State Opening of Parliament with mobility problems.
And she looked delighted when her horse Balmoral Leia was named winner of the Highland Class 64 event, and later supreme champion.
Despite health concerns, The Monarch appeared well and spent almost an hour at the parade ring close to her Windsor Castle home, and spent a long period chatting to retired racehorse trainer Henrietta Knight.
Colin Brooks, chairman of the show’s committee, shared a joke with the Queen and her head groom Terry Pendry was on hand to offer his advice.
