The Queen Returns To Windsor Castle After Officially Marking 70-Year Milestone At Sandringham

The Queen returned to Windsor Castle on Monday after spending the anniversary
of her accession day at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

The monarch, 95, could be seen sitting in the back of a Land Rover,
wearing a green coat, pearl earrings, and sunglasses as she was driven from her
country home. Her Majesty then traveled back to her Berkshire abode by
helicopter. 

She will be resuming her normal duties of audiences, credentials and
privy council meetings, continuing to mix both virtual and in-person events.

It is the understanding that the Queen hopes to attend the Diplomatic
Reception at Windsor Castle on 2 March, the Commonwealth service at Westminster
Abbey on 14 March and a service of thanksgiving for the life of the Duke of
Edinburgh at Westminster Abbey on 29 March. 

It comes after Buckingham Palace released a new portrait of the Queen on
Sunday to officially mark the 70th year of her reign. The image, taken by royal
photographer Chris Jackson, showed the monarch beaming as she was photographed
sitting in an armchair and working from her red box.

On Saturday, Her Majesty also hosted a tea party for locals in the ballroom at
Sandringham, where she cut a special cake bearing the Platinum Jubilee logo. And
in an unprecedented move, the Queen used her milestone anniversary to put plans
in motion for the future.

In a poignant message, she publicly backed the Duchess of Cornwall to be known as Queen Consort when
the 
Prince of Wales ascends the throne.

The Queen will resume her duties at Windsor Castle

“I remain eternally grateful for, and humbled by, the loyalty and
affection that you continue to give me,” she said. “And when, in the
fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him
and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my
sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort
as she continues her own loyal service.”

The monarch has been residing at Wood Farm in Sandringham since 23
January, where her beloved late husband, the 
Duke of Edinburgh, spent much of his time after retiring from
public life.

The Queen is rarely seen on her accession day as it also marks the
anniversary of her father King George VI’s death. Princess Elizabeth and Prince
Philip were in Kenya on a royal tour when they learned of the King’s death in
1952.
