It's been a few months since Prince Philip passed away, and it seems like Queen Elizabeth is doing better than ever.
"Anyone who knows the Queen or works with the Queen knows that she would take a little bit of time, but not a huge amount, to mourn her husband," expert Roya Nikkhah told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat. "What we really saw from June onwards was her carrying out a lot of activities."
She added, "She was at the G7. She is getting back to business with a real burst, and she looks happy again."
The 95-year-old has appeared at many events over the past few weeks, where she looked upbeat. "She looks happy, but there's an argument that they're pacing her engagements," royal author Robert Jobson said. "She does look really, really great and is dressing very brightly and sprightly."
One of the reasons why the Queen is not down in the dumps is because she and Prince Philip made a pact knowing that they both wouldn't live forever, Richard Kay revealed.
"The two had often discussed how each would cope without the other at their side, and it boiled down to this: whoever was left should mourn, but not for too long, then enjoy what remained of their life," Kay stated.
It's also a relief that the Queen is able to engage with people again, as she quarantined for months at Windsor Castle.
"While it may only be 11 weeks since her beloved husband was laid to rest at Windsor Castle, I’m not surprised to see so many pictures of our beaming Queen – not least as the lifting of Covid restrictions means that she, like the rest of us, is now able to return to some semblance of normality," Camilla Tominey said.
"It is no secret that the Queen loathed lockdown, which stopped her carrying out what she has always viewed as the most essential part of her job: being seen to be believed," she added.
