The Queen has been seen standing and smiling at Windsor Castle for the first time since she had to sadly miss the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph due to a sprained back.
The happy looking Monarch was pictured on Wednesday (17 Nov) sporting a green, orange and white floral dress chatting to Gen Sir Nick in Windsor's Oak Room.
Her Majesty greeted the Chief of the Defence Staff three days after she missed the national Remembrance service after sustaining a sprained back.
The Oak Room, which acts as a sitting room and office, is reportedly where the Queen spends much of her time.
It is the first time in nearly a month that the monarch has been pictured carrying out an in person engagement.
The last event was when Her Majesty hosted a reception for the global investment summit at Windsor on October 19.
She also reportedly held a face to face audience with Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week but was not pictured doing so.
The 95-year-old was said to be "disappointed" to miss the Remembrance event.
It was due to be her first official appearance after resting for a month following doctor's orders.
Other royals will still attended – including Prince Charles who laid a wreath on her behalf.

A Buckingham Palace statement previously said: "The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today's Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph.
"Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service."
"As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty's behalf by the Prince of Wales."
Her Majesty is feared to be 'rattled' by Prince Harry's decision to plough ahead with his tell-all memoir, one royal commentator has said.
The Duke of Sussex announced the book back in July this year, saying the "intimate and heartfelt" work would reveal "the highs and lows" of his life, and would be "accurate and wholly truthful".
However, a potential clash of its release with the Queen's huge Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022 could spell big trouble for the already strained relationships between the estranged Prince and the rest of The Firm back home, according to royal expert Daniela Elser.
