Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain appeared in public for the first time with a cane without medical indications for its use. About it informs Daily Mail.
On Tuesday 12 October, the 95-year-old queen arrived at Westminster Abbey with her daughter, Princess Anne, to attend a thanksgiving service on the centenary of the Royal British Legion. Photographers captured Elizabeth II with a cane.
Despite her venerable age, the queen rarely uses a cane. Prior to that, she was seen with a stick at official events in 2003 and 2004. However, then Elizabeth II had just undergone knee surgery and used a cane in public as directed by a doctor. This time the queen came out for the first time, taking her with her “for convenience.”
According to the journalists of the publication, the paths in the abbey could have influenced her decision: they are made of paving stones, and it is inconvenient to walk on them.
Earlier it was reported that a relative of the British Queen Elizabeth II spilled out about a secret passage that connects the royal palace with a luxurious bar on a nearby street. On it, members of the royal family can quietly walk to the bar of the same name, which serves martinis for 17 pounds (approximately 1,660 rubles).
