Elizabeth II, very smiling in Windsor to decorate Thomas Trotter

Queen Elizabeth II presented the Queen's Medal for Music to organist Thomas Trotter at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, the day after his virtual reception of the Somali ambassador.
 
There is no doubt that Queen Elizabeth II was delighted to receive Thomas Trotter at Windsor Castle on Wednesday, December 8, 2021. The photos of this engagement show her in the Oak Room, smiling at the British organist to whom she presented the Queen's Medal for Music, which was awarded to him last year. Created in 2005, the Queen's Medal for Music honors each year an outstanding contribution to the musical life of the United Kingdom.
 
For the occasion, the 95-year-old monarch chose to wear a sky blue dress, trimmed with a black band at the bottom of the sleeves. As reported by the Daily Mail, informed by a Buckingham Palace spokesman, the composer Judith Weir, Queen's music master, was also present.
 
The day before, Her Majesty had ensured another meeting, but virtual. As she has been doing for the past year, she received the credentials of an ambassador -that of Somalia- by video link, she being at Windsor, he at Buckingham Palace in London.
 
Very disciplined, Queen Elizabeth II is still carrying out her royal activities by ensuring, for the moment, only light tasks as recommended by her doctors after she was forced, at the end of October, to rest and was hospitalized one night for examinations.
