Queen defies wheelchair reports, uses walking stick at beloved event

Queen Elizabeth on Friday laid to rest all reports of her being relegated to the use of a wheelchair amid increasing mobility issues, with the monarch entering the Royal Windsor Horse Show with the help of a walking stick.

The 96-year-old monarch had set alarms bells ringing over her health after missing numerous important royal engagements in recent months, however, she appeared healthy and in good spirits at the show that is said to be one of her favourite royal events.

Queen Elizabeth not only walked herself over to the royal box in the arena with a walking stick, but also drove herself to the show in a Range Rover.

In fact, the monarch seemed to have no trouble doing either as she was photographed flashing bright smiles as she drove in and then settled down to watch granddaughter Lady Louise Windsor lead a parade.
