The Queen Uses Prince Philip's Walking Stick At Sandringham Tea Party

The Queen has been pictured using her late husband’s walking stick at
her Sandringham estate, in a sweet tribute to 
Prince Philip, it has emerged.

Photos from a tea party Her Majesty hosted in the ballroom at
her Norfolk abode on Saturday, show the monarch, 95, walking with the aid of a
distinctive staff with a carved handle made from a horn.

Author and broadcaster, Gyles Brandreth, spotted that the Queen was in
fact using the Duke of Edinburgh’s favourite walking stick, which he used
regularly while managing the Sandringham estate.

He told The Telegraph: “I recognized the stick instantly as
it was always kept in a pot by the front door. It was the Duke’s stick and it
is very touching that the Queen has started using it.”

Prince Philip was last photographed using the aid when he visited a
nearby nature reserve after undergoing abdominal surgery in 2013. Palace aides
said at the time that he needed the stick only to help maneuver around the
muddy Dersingham Bog.

The Duke passed away at the age of 99 on 9 April 2021 at Windsor Castle,
with his funeral taking place at St George’s Chapel. He and the Queen were
married for 73 years and shared four children, eight grandchildren and ten
great-grandchildren.

Her Majesty has since welcomed a further two great-grandchildren to the
family – the Duke and 
Duchess of Sussex‘s second child, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor,
and 
Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi‘s
daughter, Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi.

In October 2021, the Queen was pictured using a walking
stick
 for the first time
in 17 years as she was accompanied by her daughter, 
Princess Royal, to a service of Thanksgiving to mark the
centenary of the Royal British Legion (RBL) at Westminster Abbey.

The last time she was seen using a walking aid was in 2003, but this was
after surgery to remove torn cartilage from her right knee.
