Arriving at the event on its final day, the 95-year-old looked relaxed as she walked through the grounds of the event.

Yesterday, the Queen was accompanied by Penny Romsey, the former confidante and driving companion of the late Prince Philip. 

The Royal Windsor Horse Show is in its 77th year after it began as a fundraiser in 1943 during the Second War War. 

The Queen is thought to have attended every single show since they began, although last year’s event was cancelled due to the pandemic. 

Yesterday, the monarch presented an award at the show and was seen smiling from ear to ear as she walked through the grounds of Windsor Castle in a pale pink coat, floral dress and matching hat.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show, said to be one of the Queen's favourite events, came after a busy week of Royal engagements.

On Friday, Her Majesty met German Chancellor Angela Merkel at Windsor Castle.

Mrs Merkel met the monarch at her Windsor residence during her final visit to the UK before she steps down as Chancellor after 16 years in power.

The pair last met in Cornwall, at the G7 summit last month.

As they posed for the cameras, the Queen said: "We have got the photographers here, always wanting to take a picture. Making history".

Mrs Merkel replied: "Yes, it's history, of course".

The Queen has put on a brave face while continuing her royal duties in what has been a challenging few months without Prince Philip.

The Duke of Edinburgh's death prompted an outpouring of grief from the royal family and the nation alike after he passed away at the age of 99 in April.

At the time, the Queen spoke of a "period of deep sadness" and thanked Brits for their messages of “comfort”. 

Her son Prince Andrew gave a glimpse of the Queen's sorrow when he said she had described her husband's passing as leaving a "huge void in her life".

Tensions between the Queen's warring grandson’s Prince William and Harry have also been mounting after the Duke of Sussex slammed the Royal Family in an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, told Oprah that his relationship with his brother was one of "space" adding that he and dad Charles are "trapped" in the Firm.

Harry went on to accuse the Royal Family of "total neglect" on his Apple TV documentary "The Me You Don't See".
