Queen Elizabeth news: Her Majesty leads Garter service & stunned fans all say same thing

THE Queen was pictured ahead of the Garter ceremony today and fans were so impressed with her appearance despite ‘ongoing mobility issues’.

While Her Majesty kept out of the public eye, she stunned onlookers with her appearance in a photo taken before the ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The Queen was absent from the public celebration of the Order of the Garter, as more than 4,500 spectators flocked into Windsor, Berkshire, to join traditional festivities that date back to the 1300s.

When a photo of the Queen posing alongside her son, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla was released, fans were stunned by how “beautiful” she looked.

Fans loved her silver outfit, saying how “wonderful” and “lovely” she looked as her matching outfit glimmered.

Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: “She looks stunning today!”

Another said: “Love her silver heels.”

A third added: “Oh my HM looks beautiful!”

Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall, was made Royal Lady of the Order of the Garter.

The honour the Queen appointed Camilla is rarely given and mainly only to those who are the monarch’s spouse.

It comes after the Queen also told the public that when Prince Charles becomes King, Camilla will be appointed as Consort.
