Queen Elizabeth stepped out to Prince Philip's memorial on Tuesday, March 29, using a walking stick, after it's been reported that she is having mobility issues.

The 95-year-old matriarch was escorted to the shindig by her son Prince Andrew, who marked his first public appearance since he settled his lawsuit with Virginia Giuffre.

During the ceremony, the Queen looked visibly emotional, as she had tears in her eyes. Princess Beatrice and Prince Charles were also crying during the service.

This was the Queen's first public appearance since she recovered from COVID-19.

"Clearly it is welcome to see Her Majesty out today, continuing her incredible decades of service to the country," Prime Minister Boris Johnson said.

The Queen looked steady on her feet, and as Radar reported, she didn't want to be confined to a wheelchair.

"Well she says yes, because she's now got her golf, little car and it's big enough to take the corgis in as well," biographer Angela Levin told Sky News. "She won't take them obviously to the thanksgiving service, but I think that will give her the mobility she wants. And she didn't want to be in a wheelchair because she wants to be dignified and she doesn't want to look as if she's really, really old despite her age."

She continued, "And this is actually quite zany, and if they can get her into her position without everybody watching and seeing how difficult it is for her to walk, I think it will work very well. She looks much, much better and it's very important for her to appear. And I think we've been told that she will, she hasn't said she's going to leave it until the absolute last minute, and I think it would be heartbreaking for her not to be able to get there."
