Queen quashes health fears as she makes surprise hospice visit with Princess Anne

Her Majesty delighted royal fans and dashed concerns over her health as she travelled to Maidenhead accompanied by the Princess Royal. There, the Queen attended the official opening of the new Thames Hospice building.

For the visit, the Queen donned a splendid baby blue dress with a white and green floral pattern.

She accessorised her outfit with her signature pearl earrings and necklace and black shoes and handbag. 

Her Majesty, who has been experiencing episodic mobility issues over the past months, walked around the hospice using a light walking stick. 

Nevertheless, the Queen appeared in great spirit and good health as she chatted with staff members at the hospice. 

Walking a few steps behind her mother, Princess Anne smiled widely while meeting people involved and supported by the charity. 

The no-nonsense royal donned a chequered outfit. 

The Queen has a strong bond with Thames Hospice, a charity providing palliative care for people with a life-limiting illnesses. 

In November 1987, the monarch officially opened the Thames Valley Hospice at Pine Lodge on Hatch Lane in Windsor.

The Queen returned to the hospice in Berkshire in 2002, to open the extension created to accomodate more people.

A decade later, the monarch made her third visit to the hospice to commemorate the charity’s 25th years.

The Queen has been carrying out several engagements in recent weeks, on top of her daily duties as head of state. 

On Tuesday, she awarded the George Cross to representatives of the NHS across the four nations.

During the poignant audience, the monarch stood without the support of a walking stick and praised the “amazing” COVID-19 vaccine rollout across the country.

In late June, the 96-year-old monarch attended several events during the traditional Holyrood Week, the yearly week of engagements carried out by the sovereign in Scotland.

While in Edinburgh, the monarch met First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and attended the poignant Ceremony of the Keys at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Among other engagements, she also attended the Reddendo Parade alongside her son and heir Prince Charles.
