Fern's followers were quick to echo the presenter's sentiments. One wrote: "Agree Fern. She has a mobility issue clearly. What I'd love to see is her whizzing about on a mobility scooter. I reckon she'd be ace at that!" while another commented: "I concur, our Queen looks amazing and doing something Her Majesty really enjoys. That's so heart-warming."

While some people on the social media platform questioned why the Queen was well enough to attend the horse show, but not the opening of parliament, many supporters shared their admiration for Her Majesty's decision.

One commented: "If I had to choose between horses and a bunch of politicians, I'd choose the horses," to which Fern replied: "Precisely."
