Instantly dispelling any rumors of ill health, Queen Elizabeth, who turns 91 next month, indulged in her favorite pastime with a ride along the bank of the Thames at Windsor Castle.

Two months after the longest reigning British monarch missed Christmas Day services due to a “heavy cold,” The Daily Telegraph reported that she “has looked relaxed and well in recent appearances, and appeared to be enjoying the spring air as she took to her pony alongside Windsor Castle Head Groom Terry Pendry.”
