Quinn gives an interview at Windsor Castle

London Queen Elizabeth II met the British Army’s chief of staff at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, the first time she was seen carrying out a face-to-face clash since she missed Sunday’s national memorial service due to a sprained back.

The 95-year-old appeared to be in good shape as she spoke with General Nick Carter in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle. Dressed in a colorful floral gown, the Queen stood up to welcome Carter, who is preparing to step down as commander in chief at the end of November.

The Oak Room is the Queen’s living room and office, and her elderly pet Dorje Candy – a cross between a Corgi and a Dachshund – is seen greeting Carter as he enters the room.

Concerns about the Queen’s health were raised last month, when she spent a night in a London hospital after being admitted for medical checks. In late October, palace officials said doctors had ordered the king to rest for two weeks and do only light tasks.

These fears heightened after she withdrew at the last minute from Sunday’s national memorial service to honor Britain’s war dead. Buckingham Palace officials, who said it was the Queen’s “firm intention” to organize the event, announced on Sunday that she had decided to miss the ceremony because she had twisted her back.

Elizabeth is the longest-lived and longest-reigning in Britain. Next year, she is set to celebrate her platinum jubilee – marking 70 years on the throne.

During her break, the Queen continued to work from home, performing office duties and spending most of her time at Windsor Castle, west of London.

It canceled plans to attend the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, and sent a video message instead to world leaders attending this month’s conference. It also canceled a previous trip to Northern Ireland.

The Queen had a personal meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week, but she was not photographed doing so.
