HISTORIC VISIT OF QUEEN ELIZABETH II TO IRELAND, DAY THREE, May 19, 2011

Queen Elizabeth II’s final day of her official visit to Ireland was marked by a trip to the Irish National Stud.  The Queen is known for her keen interest in racing horses and is respected for her expert knowledge in the field.  And so this visit to a leading horse breeding center in Ireland was undoubtedly a most enjoyable experience for Her Majesty.  The Daily Telegraph reported that, “As the Queen cast an expert eye over one of the stallions, the horse, called Jeremy, became agitated and reared up, but while several onlookers instinctively stepped back, the 85-year-old monarch remained the calmest person in sight, standing her ground without flinching. ”
