Can there be another 93-year-old with the stamina of the Queen?
At the end of a busy week in which she had to entertain Donald Trump and his extended family before attending the D-Day commemorations in Portsmouth, Her Majesty also found time to ‘hang out’ in London’s fashionable Notting Hill.
Resplendent in a green dress, the monarch was spotted on Thursday afternoon leaving the home of her beloved cousin Lady Elizabeth Anson, who turned 78 the next day.
