Queen Elizabeth Makes Her First Major Trip In Years – Her Majesty Back In Health?

It looks like there’s no stopping this monarch. There are new reports that say Queen Elizabeth made her first major trip since the COVID-19 pandemic break this week. She made the trek from Windsor to Scotland. Here’s what you need to know.

The 96-year-old monarch, who has cut back on public engagements due to mobility issues, was in Edinburgh for the historic Ceremony of the Keys – the traditional opener to Holyrood week for the Royals. She was joined by her youngest son, Edward, and his wife, Sophie, known as the Earl and Countess of Forfar while they are in Scotland, for the event, which is taking place at the Palace of Holyroodhouse. The ceremony traditionally sees the monarch handed the keys of the city and welcomed to her “ancient and hereditary kingdom of Scotland.”

The trip comes after the recent Platinum Jubilee celebrations for the Queen, in which she pledged to continue to serve the country “to the best of my ability supported by my family.” Charles, known as the Earl of Rothesay in Scotland, and the Princess Royal will all take part in a series of public engagements in Scotland over the coming days. However, Andrew, known as the Earl of Inverness in Scotland, no longer carries out public duties and will not be involved.

Meanwhile, the Queen, who was crowned on June 2, 1953, became the longest-serving British monarch in September 2015, after surpassing her great-great grandmother Queen Victoria. The milestone comes just a week after the monarch said she was “humbled and deeply touched” by celebrations marking her Platinum Jubilee, following four days of star-studded events, parades and thousands joining street parties. Louis XIV of France remains firmly in the top spot, having reigned for 72 years and 110 days from 1643 to 1715.
