The Queen’s speech tonight was wonderful.   I’m so impressed with her.  It gives me hope to hear her words about VE Day.  

I really enjoyed it too. Having a steadying force like her brings a sense of comfort when things are so uncertain.

Very poignant, too, coming from one who was very much present in 1945. She must be reflecting on the original celebrations and that little bit of freedom and anonymity she and Margaret experienced when mixing in with the crowd that night.

The Queen's speech was wonderful, linking the troubles of the Second World War to the current situation. Somehow her speeches are always appropriate and are a source of comfort and help.

I really liked the "props" on the desk too, the picture of her father, George VI, her cap from when she served during the war, and the brooches which I believe were an 18th birthday present from her father, so would have been gifted to her in 1944. I haven't seen those brooches before, but they're absolutely stunning!

The Queen went for a ride on a fell pony yesterday, the first time she's been seen outside since the lockdown began.What lovely furry feet. The horse I mean.

Lovely to see her out enjoying the sun, and at 94, still riding. Beautiful pony too.

Excellent PR - she is quietly getting on with her life, showing that she is even enjoying life as it is, even though it has a lot of impacts on her and also signaling "I am fine and healthy". Brilliant job. I think she is in one line with her mom and Alice of Gloucester, who both died at the age of 102. So she will be around for a while (TBTG).

I have read that horseback riding is excellent for core strength, which in turn helps maintain good blalnce as you age.

When she was Princess Elizabeth, did Queen Elizabeth II learn how to ride sidesaddle?

Yes, she rode side-saddle for some formal duties.

Two generations earlier it was required. My great-great- grandmother rode side-saddle and she was just a sheep farmer’s daughter!

This is a statue of Queen Elizabeth riding on Burmese, a horse given to her by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. She rode the horse in 18 consecutive birthday parades. In 1986, Burmese was retired to Windsor, where she died in 1990. The statue is located on the grounds of the Saskatchewan Legislature in Wascana Park.
