Queen health: Monarch’s walking stick here to stay – expert spots major clue on new trip

“Her Majesty and Their Royal Highnesses met the @fmwales and Welsh party leaders before The Queen addressed Members of Welsh Parliament in the Senedd.”

A linked post continued: “In her address Her Majesty said: ‘The Welsh people have much to be proud of and over the next five years, I am sure you will continue to be inspired by their indomitable spirit, as you represent the interests of Wales and its people…’”

The images of the Queen once again using a walking aid come after the Palace had allayed fears surrounding the Queen’s health and mobility on Wednesday.

Buckingham Palace released photos of Her Majesty standing unaided as she presented Her Majesty’s Medal for Music to the celebrated pianist, Dame Imogen Cooper.
