The Queen Isabel II participated in his first public event since he returned to Windsor Palace and did it alongside his grandson, the prince William. The 94-year-old monarch and the 38-year-old Duke of Cambridge visited the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory in Salisbury to formally inaugurate the Energy Analysis Center.
The queen arrived at the scene by helicopter, while the prince traveled by car. The last time that William accompanied his grandmother in an official act was in 2017, when the two met some members affected by the fire at Grenfell Tower.
This Thursday, the 15th, also marks the first meeting in an official act of the queen with a member of her family, since confinement was decreed due to the pandemic, last March. Apart from this occasion, the monarch allowed himself to be seen in public very few times, having attended Princess Beatrice’s wedding in July, in the same month that she decorated Captain Tom Moore, who at the age of 100 managed to raise more than 30 million euros for the British National Health Service (NHS), to combat the pandemic.
