Queen Elizabeth rides on a 14-year-old Fell Pony enjoying weekend since the coronavirus lockdown started in the UK

Queen Elizabeth has been pictured riding on a 14-year-old Fell Pony in the grounds of Windsor Castle, her first public appearance since the coronavirus lockdown began.

Windsor is said to be the Queen's favorite royal residence and she has been photographed over the weekend riding one of her ponies, a 14-year-old Fell Pony called Balmoral Fern.

The 94-year-old regularly rides in the grounds of Windsor and has been a passionate horse lover and breeder of thoroughbred racehorses throughout her reign.

 The Queen has made two televised addresses during the lockdown, the first assuring those in isolation that "we will meet again" and the other to mark VE Day.

Britain has one of the world's highest death rates from COVID-19 and the government says it is easing the stringent lockdown cautiously to balance the need to restart the economy while also trying to prevent another increase in the number of infections.
