Over the weekend, the Queen of the United Kingdom was spotted driving around Word Farm and the Commodore Yard Stables in an unannounced visit to Sandringham.
While in Norfolk, Her Majesty was seen behind the wheel of her Range Rover. She was accompanied by two men – one of whom was supposedly John Warren, her bloodstock and racing adviser.
Through the years, the Queen has owned hundreds of racehorses and has claimed over 1,600 wins. She is believed to be visiting Sandringham on horse business, as several horses were noticed being led around Commodore yard over the weekend.
As the news outlet notes, Queen Elizabeth II breeds thoroughbreds, Shetland ponies, and Fell ponies. In 2007, she opened a full-time Highland pony stud at Balmoral, Scotland, to help preserve the breed.
What is more, Her Royal Highness recently attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show, which is considered to be one of her favorite equestrian events of the year. She was in the company of her daughter Princess Anne, 70.
Wood Farm was the place where the Queen went with Prince Philip and their children to unwind for over 50 years. It was also the spot the late Duke of Edinburgh spent much of his time after retiring from public duties in August 2017.
