Queen Elizabeth II saw the use of cane during the Westminster Abbey service


LONDON – Queen Elizabeth II used the walking stick at a major public event for the first time on Tuesday as she attended the Westminster Abbey service, celebrating the centenary of the Royal British Legion, the Armed Forces Charity.

The 95-year-old king was photographed using a 2003 cane, although she underwent knee surgery.

After the two left the limousine for service in central London, the Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, handed her a moving device. Wearing a hat of royal blue wool, the Queen appeared to laugh and move freely as she walked to her seat at the church.

She entered the abbey through the entrance to the poet’s courtyard instead of the traditional Great West door. Buckingham Palace declined to comment.

Queen and Anne joined a gathering serving military personnel, veterans and their families from the UK and Commonwealth countries.

The service highlighted the work of the Royal British Army, which was established in 1921 to look after service members and their families after World War I.
