You can all breathe a sigh of relief; the Queen is ok.

After calling in sick to an engagement at St Paul’s Cathedral last week, it appears the Queen is alive and well.

She has been snapped looking a picture of health in a yellow coat and hat, and a bright floral dress at the Ceremony of the Keys event in Edinburgh.

Today Her Majesty was welcomed to her ‘ancient and hereditary kingdom of Scotland’ by Edinburgh Lord Provost Frank Ross. The event is an ancient tradition which involves the Queen offering keys to Edinburgh under a military guard of honour. She is symbolically offered the keys to the city by the Lord Provost but refuses them in a tradition to show her vote of confidence to the officials of the city.

The event marks the start of Holyrood Week, known in Scotland as Royal Week, during which the Queen visits different regions in Scotland.

Still a go-getter at 92 years of age, the Queen will host thousands of guests at Holyrood Palace, meeting subjects across all walks of life.

Young or old, we think Her Majesty looks great at every age.

March,1953- Queen Elizabeth II of England
