This Monday, November 1, Queen Elizabeth II spoke at the COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland. Very discreet since her hospitalization, the monarch has multiplied the tributes to her late husband, Prince Philip, during this new speech.
It is a speech that did not go unnoticed. This Monday, November 1, Queen Elizabeth II, who is still recovering from her hospitalization, spoke publicly in a video published on ITV News and relayed on Twitter. Taking advantage of the opening of the COP26 in Glasgow, where her son Charles, but also her grandson William and his wife Kate Middleton went, the monarch gave a speech during which she multiplied the tributes to Prince Philip, who died on April 9. “It is a source of great pride to me that the leading role played by my husband in encouraging people to protect our fragile planet continues through the work of our eldest son Charles and his eldest son William,” she said in this new speech recorded in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle. She added, “I couldn’t be more proud of them.”
In addition to the substance, Elizabeth II has, as always, taken great care of the form. Thus, behind her, sat a photo of her late husband taken in nature, probably in the fall, if we believe the color of the leaves. If she honored the late Duke of Edinburgh in her speech and in the setting chosen for this speech, the mother of Prince Andrew also chose to wear a symbolic brooch, diamond and ruby, which would have been given to her for her marriage to Prince Philip, as reported by our sources.
These last appearances that reassure
In parallel to this speech recorded on the occasion of the opening of the COP26, the 95-year-old monarch was seen driving her car, this Monday, November 1, in Windsor, as reported by The Sun. This is the first time that the wife of Prince Philip is seen since her hospitalization. She, who could not go to the COP26 on the orders of her doctors, was seen at the wheel of her Jaguar, part of her face hidden by sunglasses and a printed scarf. If her schedule has been revised and lightened because of her need for rest, Queen Elizabeth II looks indeed in good shape. Reassuring photos.
