The Queen was all smiles during her visit to the RAF Marham on Monday. The visit marked her first appearance since the departure of her grandson and granddaughter in law.

In January, the Monarch, who was away on holiday at her private estate, Sandringham, was unable to have her annual tea-time meeting with the local Women's Institute as planned due to a cold.

Sources have it that the cold and the emergency family meeting held following her grandson, Prince Harry, and his wife's announcement to step back as senior members of the royal family delayed the start of the Monarch's year.

The Monarch, whose visit to the military airbase marked her first public appearance since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's announced their intention to exit the royal family looked radiant.

She toured the place and watched demonstrations of how weapons were loaded, changing of canopies, and simulation-based training.

On Instagram, the Royal Family posted a thread of pictures showing the Queen during her visit on Monday. An image of the Queen's visit to the airbase in 1988 was also included.

As the post read, the old picture was a representation of the longtime support which the royal family gives to the military.

"The Queen, Honorary Air Commodore, visited @rafmarham in Norfolk today. The Royal Family have long supported the air base."

The military airbase, known as the RAF Marham, has more than 3,600 workers, and it supplies engineering support across the RAF.

While many other people from the royal palace are still hurt about the decision, the royal mother seems to have made peace with her grandson's decision.

The airbase, which houses the military aircraft, F-35B, is also an integrated training center where future pilots are trained to become Lighting Plane pilots.

The 93-year-old, who supported her grandson and his family in their decision to exit the Royal family, has come to terms with it and is ready to move on with her year.

Queen Elizabeth was said to have had a 90-minute long meeting with Princes Harry, William, and Charles.

A source said that the meeting was to hasten the royal family's adaptation to the absence of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The Queen's radiance all through her visit further confirms the words about her reaction to Prince Harry and Meghan's decision.

While many other people from the royal palace are still hurt about the decision, the royal mother seems to have made peace with her grandson's decision.

Now that the Monarch has launched her royal year, she is ready for other royal duties.

Her next stop is the new Wolferton Pumping Station in King's Lynn, which her father, King George VI, originally opened on February 2, 1948. She will be launching the station on Wednesday at Norfolk.
