Queen Elizabeth II of England celebrated the 70th anniversary of her accession.
On Feb. 5, one day before the 70th anniversary of her accession, the Queen met with representatives of local volunteer groups, pensioners and women's group members at Sandringham Villa, the BBC and Sky News reported.
The Queen in a light blue dress with a cane cut a cake made by local residents with a bright expression.
The letters on the cake were directed at the photographers and not the queen, but the queen smiled and said it didn't matter.
One reception attendee said the Queen was “sparkling.”
According to the AP, the Queen was free to move despite recent health concerns, and the cane seemed to be used for support while standing rather than walking.
The Queen inherited the crown after King George VI, who died on February 6, 1952.
Usually, the day of the enthronement passes quietly as it is also the anniversary of her father's death.
The 70th anniversary (Platinum Jubilee) official commemorative event will be held on a large scale during the holidays from June 2 to 5.
