Queen Elizabeth II looked so pleased to return to her work after her two-week mourning period, following the death of her husband, Prince Philip, on April 9. The British monarch, 95, was captured in a photograph that was tweeted out by the Royal Family on Tuesday, April 27.
In the photo, which featured the queen meeting with two new ambassadors to the United Kingdom via video, Queen Elizabeth II smiled and wore a beautiful, floral ensemble in hues of blue.
“Today The Queen held Audiences with incoming Ambassadors via video link from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace,” the caption to the photos began. The audience with the two ambassadors marked the queen’s first engagement since Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17.
The queen met with Her Excellency Mrs. Ivita Burmistre, Ambassador from the Republic of Latvia and Her Excellency Mrs. Sara Affoue Amani, Ambassador from the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire.
