Her Majesty made the witty joke during a historic ceremony showing her legendary sense of humor is intact despite suffering from ongoing mobility issues. The monarch attended the Reddendo parade at her official residence in Scotland as part of Holyrood week.
Prince Charles, known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, accompanied her.
The military ceremony usually sees the Queen’s Body Guard for Scotland Archers give the monarch two arrows, as an act of service and loyalty to the sovereign.
However this year there was a more extravagant gift.
The Queen beamed with delight as the Duke of Buccleuch gave her a beautiful glass sculpture.
The Duke, who is one of Scotland’s largest landowners, explained to the monarch that the special gift was in honor of her Platinum Jubilee.
The Queen said to its designer, Colin Reid: “Very interesting large piece of glass.”
The Duke then went on to explain how it was created, to which Her Majesty responded: “How wonderful, how lovely.”
It was at this point that the nonagenarian monarch made a sharp quip to the Duke demonstrating his sense of humor was intact.
