Queen Elizabeth has held a face to face audience with General Sir Nick Carter, the Chief of the Defence Staff, at Windsor Castle. This was part of her first official engagements since missing the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph on November 14. The monarch looked sensational in a lovely orange, green, and white floral dress as she posed in the drawing room at Windsor Castle.
The Queen was seen standing and smiling at Windsor Castle after missing the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph.
This is remarkable seeing as royal fans were told the monarch had sprained her back so could not attend the service on November 14.
Doctors previously advised her to rest for an unrelated health matter, leading to the cancellation of a planned appearance at the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday November 13.
It came after the Queen had an overnight stay at the King Edward VII Hospital in central London on October 20 – her first in eight years.

The monarch, 95, was dressed in a green, orange and white floral dress and wearing a string of pearls.
She looked fantastic being able to stand in her kaleidoscopic flowery dress.
Many royal fans will view these photos as an attempt to divert public attention away from her health, which has made many headlines in recent weeks.
The Queen was wearing very comfy looking black, sturdy shoes, which must have helped the monarch not getting tired after standing for long periods of time.
The photographs were taken in Windsor Castle’s Oak Room – a sitting room that doubles as a private office.
CEO of jewellery house Le Vian, Eddie LeVian, whose ancestors guarded the ancient royal jewels of Persia in the 18th century, spoke to Express.co.uk about the monarch’s jewellery in her latest photographs.
LeVian said: “Her Majesty The Queen is often seen wearing a three-strand pearl necklace, which is appropriate for daytime wear and also holds familial significance.
“Her father, King George VI, gifted her a pearl necklace before he died in 1952 and Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne the following year.
“The Queen has the original necklace from her father and several other three-strand pearl necklaces designed to emulate the original.
“From this photograph, it is hard to identify which one of these she is wearing.
“I believe, based on our extensive research into consumer, celebrity and royal jewellery trends that 2022 will be a hugely important year for pearls.
“They are an organic gem which harness and symbolise the pearls of wisdom we have collected during the world’s recent experience of challenge, reflection and hope.”
Jayne Golds added: “Oh doesn’t The Queen look marvellous.
“So reassuring for us all.”
