Queen thanked for 'picking' Royal Windsor Horse Show over State Opening of Parliament

The 96-year-old monarch beamed on Sunday as she attended the Gallop Through History event at the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Her Majesty even got to see her granddaughter, Lady Louise, pay tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh after the teenager drove the carriage and fell ponies that once belonged to Prince Philip.

However, the Queen’s attendance at the event was mocked by comedian Omid Djalili.

Closing the show, which included 1,300 performers and 500 horses, he said: “Thank you to the Great British public who have shown up tonight, in the back there, wearing comfortable shoes and light rain-wear.”

He added: “Your Royal Highness, on behalf of everyone here, we would like to thank you, very humbly, for picking us over the State Opening of Parliament.

“You did the right thing, and I won £5 in a bet with my local kebab shop owner in Ipswich.”

Audience members applauded and laughed after Mr Djalili made the joke.

The camera then panned to Her Majesty, who also seemed to respond in jest.

She subtly smiled as she raised one of her arms in the air.

However, the joke came just days after the Queen missed her third State Opening of Parliament in her 70-year reign.

This enabled the Duke of Cornwall and Prince William to jointly exercise that function.

However, no other functions have been delegated by the Queen so far, according to the Mirror.

Prince Charles stood in for his mother and delivered the Queen’s Speech, which is used to set out the Government’s legislative agenda for the next parliamentary session.
