Queen Elizabeth, 94, Looks Beautiful As She Makes First Royal Appearance In 7 Months After Quarantining

Queen Elizabeth II has returned to public life, making her first appearance outside of castle walls since the coronavirus pandemic began.

British monarch Queen Elizabeth II made her first public engagement in seven months when she visited the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory on October 15. Her Majesty was joined by grandson Prince William as they ventured outside of castle walls, to Wiltshire, England, for the first time since the deadly COVID-19 pandemic began. The royals were at the laboratory to officially open the Energetics Analysis Centre, which is “dedicated to scientific research and analysis to protect the UK against terrorist and criminal threats relating to explosives” per Buckingham Palace.

The Queen has been a source of support for the nation, amid the global pandemic, and made a rare broadcast appearance back in April 5. “While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time, we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavor using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal,” she stated. “We will succeed, and that success will belong to every one of us. We should take comfort that although we have more still to endure, better days will return. We will be with our friends again. We will be with our families again. We will meet again.”
