Her Majesty made the witty joke during a historic ceremony showing her legendary sense of humour is intact despite suffering from ongoing mobility issues. The monarch attended the Reddendo parade at her official residence in Scotland as part of Holyrood week.

Prince Charles, known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland, accompanied her.

The military ceremony usually sees the Queen’s Body Guard for Scotland Archers give the monarch two arrows, as an act of service and loyalty to the sovereign.

However this year there was a more extravagant gift.

The Queen beamed with delight as the Duke of Buccleuch gave her a beautiful glass sculpture.

The Duke, who is one of Scotland’s largest landowners, explained to the monarch that the special gift was in honour of her Platinum Jubilee.

The Queen said to its designer, Colin Reid: “Very interesting large piece of glass.”

The Duke then went on to explain how it was created, to which Her Majesty responded: “How wonderful, how lovely.”

It was at this point that the nonagenarian monarch made a sharp quip to the Duke demonstrating her sense of humour was intact. 

She commented: “Much better than arrows on a cushion”, which drew appreciative laughter.

Her Majesty’s sense of humour and positive demeanour left royal fans purring on social media.

One person wrote: “She still has a wonderful sense of humour and is sharp as a tack! Bless her.”

Another fan remarked: “God bless her heart. The Queen was in a wonderful mood. She looked beautiful as well.”
