Queen Elizabeth en route to Sandringham stables
Queen Elizabeth, 96, is currently enjoying a royal break at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk. Local residents could hardly believe their eyes as the monarch drove past them in the passenger seat of a Range Rover on Monday morning July 4, 2022. She was led to her horses by her race manager, John Warren, and not only looked content and relaxed, but also seemed to make her mate laugh with her famously dry sense of humor.
At the five-bedroom farmhouse where Prince Philip, † 99, lived after retirement, the 96-year-old is recovering from a tiring trip to Edinburgh, where she attended three public meetings as part of the week of Holyrood. According to media reports, she traveled to Norfolk last weekend to have time for herself.

Mike Tindall : he follows in the footsteps of the queen with his latest project
Mike Tindall, 43, has already given up on his professional rugby career. Zara Tindall’s husband, 41, is now a successful podcaster – and, as the former athlete revealed, also co-founded a gin brand. Along with his friends and podcast colleagues James Haskell and Alex Payne, Mike Tindall launched “Blackeye” gin.
A project with which he opened the doors to Queen Elizabeth, 96. The monarch is an avowed gin lover and has his own juniper schnapps produced and sold. The Buckingham Palace shop offers Queen Gin, made from 12 botanicals grown in the palace gardens. Cost factor: 40 euros. Mike Tindall apparently leaned towards the Queen’s price segment. The father-of-three’s gin is also available for 40 euros. Fans can buy a signed bottle for 60 euros.
Duchess Catherine missed Andy Murray’s win at Wimbledon
Duchess Catherine, 40, is a regular at Wimbledon as godmother to the All England Lawn Tennis Club, but a year was barred from going to the championships – missing out on Andy Murray, 35,’s maiden title at Wimbledon.
In 2013, Kate was dying to be at Wimbledon to cheer on the British tennis player in the final, but despite pleas and pleas, the Duchess had to stay home. The reason: “I was very pregnant with George so I couldn’t come,” Kate said in 2017 in the BBC documentary ‘Our Wimbledon’ during a chat with sports presenter Sue Barker. She replied “But you had a great excuse!”, but Prince William’s wife, 40, wanted to be there at all costs. “I know, but still,” Kate said. “I thought ‘Maybe I could go’ but the doctors said ‘no’. I then texted Andy Murray saying I was sorry I couldn’t be there but congratulations [gewünscht]’ revealed the Duchess of Cambridge.
In the Royal Box, William, Kate & Co. give free rein to their emotions
Luckily, Kate was able to be there three years later when Andy Murray won his second Wimbledon title.
