Her Majesty Has a High-Tech Cart To Help Her Get Around

The Queen has been the patron of the Royal Horticultural Society since 1952 and has been regularly attending the annual Chelsea Flower Show since she was a child. However, this year, many have feared the 96-year-old monarch might escape the biggest horticultural event in London due to the issue of her mobility.

The Royal Household, however, fixed the problem and got the solution - The Queenmobile! It's a brand new cart, similar to a golf buggy, and debuted by Her Majesty this afternoon as she visited the gardening extravaganza in London.  

Her Majesty donned a floral dress topped with a baby pink coat which she accessorized with a pearl necklace and a magnificent brooch. She also wore black loafers. And was beaming with happiness as she greeted spectators. 

According to BBC, it was not the first time, however, that Her Majesty was seen onboard a golf buggy. Back in 2011, she used a cart during a tour in Australia, and in 2013, she also used a golf cart to get around during an event in Buckingham Palace gardens.

The Buckingham Palace officials said, "Adjustments have been made for The Queen's comfort"

According to an Australian news outlet, the electric vehicle was recently acquired by the Royal Household to help the Queen get around. 

The white golf buggy has leather seats, Bluetooth speakers, a mini-fridge, a touch-screen map device, and it's battery-powered. It can travel for 50 miles before needing another recharge.

It is estimated to be worth around $100,000.

The Chelsea Flower Show

Formally known as The Great Spring Show, RHS Chelsea Flower Show is a garden show in London held for five days by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London. 

The highlights of the show include the avant-garde show gardens, the artisan and urban gardens. The show was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic and in 2021 was temporarily held in September.

This year, the show has returned to its traditional May schedule with the gardens focusing on wildlife and wellbeing. 

Despite her issue with mobility, The Queen is still determined to do all her public engagements as long as she can. Thus, the Royal Household came up with the idea of "The Queenmobile". It's sure the state-of-the-art vehicle can provide comfort to Her Majesty. 

The Queen is still unstoppable despite the inconveniences in her movements. She's so hardworking! We admire her devotion and passion fulfilling her royal duties. 

Other members of the royal family who toured the show: The Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, and Princess Alexandra.
