The Queen made her first public appearance of 2021 on Wednesday (31 March), as she marked the centenary of the Royal Australian Air Force. Her Majesty attended a special service held at the CWGC Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede in Surrey.
During her visit, the Queen viewed the names of some of the 1,300 members of the Royal Australian Air Force who have lost their lives in service of their country. A special service was then held, in which prayers were offered to them.
A wreath was also laid on the Queen's behalf before she went on to meet with serving RAAF personnel.
The monarch was dressed for the warm weather in a spring-ready pastel green ensemble, consisting of a jacket and matching skirt. She completed her look with a co-ordinating statement hat adorned with yellow tulips and white flowers.
Her Majesty opened the memorial in Runnymede back in October 1953.
While this is the first in-person appearance the Queen has made so far this year, as a result of Coronavirus restrictions, she has taken part in a number of video chats.
She has not been seen in public since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's arrival at Windsor Castle in December, following their three-day royal train tour of England, Scotland and Wales.
Royal fans were delighted to see her out and about, and a post of Her Majesty's visit on Instagram has been flooded with admiring comments.
"Her Majesty looks fabulous in that outfit, the colours are so 'spring-like!'" wrote one follower, while another added: "Our Queen looking amazing as always."
