  1. It’s so good to see the Queen out and about! She didn’t like to be reminded that she’s at the horse show but not at the opening of Parliament. But it’s so difficult for her to negotiate all the steps and the long walk to the throne over at Westminster, that she knew she couldn’t make it under her own steam. She would have had to use a wheelchair and she hates the very thought. Maybe the announcer at the horse show should have limited his remarks to thank her for attending. She’s 96! I don’t know too many 96-year old people still working. She’s amazing!
