For the first time the Elizabeth regime participated at an important public event with the help of a walking stick. This was reported by the Evening Standard website, publishing a photo taken of the 95-year-old queen during a ceremony on the occasion of the centenary of the Royal British Legion. Elizabeth, reports the newspaper, got out of a limousine, received the cane from the hands of the Royal Princess Anne and then headed, without problems, to her place in Westminster Abbey.
Elizabeth, the Evening Standard points out, did not enter the Abbey through the traditional entrance – the Great West Door – but through the entrance to Poet’s Yard, which allowed her to walk less to reach her seat. Buckingham Palace did not comment on the news.
