Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Queen Tours Flower Show in Buggy Due to ‘Mobility Issues'” – below is their description.
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II on Monday used a special buggy to tour the annual Chelsea Flower Show in London.
The monarch normally walks around the many show gardens on display at the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
But the 96-year-old has mobility issues and Buckingham Palace said “adjustments” had been made “for the Queen’s comfort.”
It confirmed that the vehicle, built by a Danish firm, was a Royal Household buggy.
UK media reported it was the first time in nearly a decade that the monarch is believed to have used a buggy at an official engagement.
The Sun newspaper reported earlier this year that the luxury golf buggy cost £62,000 ($77,945).
It has a lithium battery, leather seats and bluetooth speakers, according to The Sun.
The Chelsea Flower Show – a world-renowned horticultural extravaganza – is due to open to the public on Tuesday.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
