Days after she went into quarantine, Britain's Queen Elizabeth was photographed riding a 14-year-old Fell pony in Windsor Home Park on Sunday as the country eased stringent measures to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus. Her passion for horse riding began at the age of 4, when she received the gift of her first horse.

The Queen's daughter, Princess Anne, became the first royal to compete in the Olympics when she rode in the equestrian three-day event at the 1976 Games in Montreal.

"It was remarkable to see her looking so well", says Hugo Vickers, biographer of the Queen Mother, the Duchess of Windsor and Queen Mary. The last public photo taken of the queen was in March, which showed her being driven away, leaving Buckingham Palace.

"Her Majesty since childhood, fond of riding and is closely connected with the welfare of horses, which she owned for breeding, riding and racing", reads the caption to the pictures. She has been spending lockdown with her husband, Prince Philip, at their Windsor residence. The ensemble marked one of the rare times the Queen has been seen wearing pants! Instead, it is thought the couple will remain together at Windsor, where they retain separate apartments but join each other for lunch and dinner every day.

A series of stunning photos of Queen Elizabeth II horse riding have been shared. But how many other 94-year-olds are still riding at all, let alone in a marvelously devil-may-care headscarf rather than a helmet?

The Queen gave an emotive speech earlier in the year addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the lockdown period, the Queen has made two televised addresses to the nation - which she delivered from Windsor Castle according to Express.co.uk.
