Is Queen Elizabeth using a cane this week to engender some sympathy?

Share this post

A few days ago, Queen Elizabeth attended an event at Westminster Abbey, and she used a walking cane. Royal sources said that QEII was using the cane for comfort, as opposed to a specific injury, I suppose. People also noted that some of the walkways in the Abbey are a bit uneven, so it made sense that a 95-year-old Queen would want a little support. But I guess it wasnt a one-off! The Queen used a walking cane again today, in Cardiff. She was there to open the Welsh Parliament, aka the Senedd. She wore a vibrant pink and used the same cane she used earlier this week.Theres been some conversation on social media about why, particularly this month, the Queen is suddenly using a cane. I guess Im little miss gullible sunshine, because I believe the royal explanation, and it seems totally reasonable that a woman of her age would need some support. But the conspiracies could also be true: perhaps shes projecting a more sympathetic image these days to get people to focus on the little old lady who walks with a cane, as opposed to the monarch who wields her power, money and access to protect her rapist son.Weirdly, there was also mask inconsistency with this trip. The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were also in attendance in Cardiff, and as they entered the Parliament building, only Charles wore a mask and the Queen and Camilla did not. Buckingham Palace pointed out that they were in compliance with current Welsh Covid regulations. But I seriously doubt that.If youre curious about her brooch, its a diamond daffodil. Daffodils are the national flower of Wales, which I truly did not know before now.Photos courtesy of Avalon Red.Celebitchy
