Queen Elizabeth II Steps Out For First Royal Engagement Since "Megxit"
Queen Elizabeth II returned to the public eye on Monday, February 3. She paid a visit to the Royal Air Force base in Marham, England. It was her first public appearance since "Megxit" - a cold had delayed an engagement late last month!
After a hectic start to 2020 for the Royal Family, Queen Elizabeth II on Monday stepped out for her first public engagement. So far, the Royal Family has dealt with Harry and Meghan's move to Canada, Prince Andrew's scandalous connection to Jeffrey Epstein, and the recent enactment of Brexit.
But the Queen resumed her typical duties on Monday with a visit to the Royal Air Force base in Marham. It was her first public appearance since "Megxit."
The Queen would have been seen late last month for tea with the Women's Institute, but a cold prevented her from attending!

Visits to this base are a regular occurrence for the Queen, and everyone at the base was reportedly "buzzing" to see her once again. The Queen herself was trained as a mechanic in the women's branch of the British army during WWII.
On Wednesday, the Queen will next head to Norfolk, where she will open the Wolferton Pumping Station in King's Lynn.
