·1 min read

The Queen has been seen without her walking stick for the second day in a row after welcoming the Australian governor of New South Wales to Windsor Castle.

The 96-year-old's meeting with retired judge Margaret Beazley came after she hosted the Archbishop of Canterbury at her Berkshire home on Tuesday.

Her Majesty was pictured standing without her walking stick, wearing a summery bright yellow dress with a blue floral pattern as she chatted to Ms Beazley.

The monarch has been facing ongoing mobility issues and has been seen with a stick or sat down during recent public appearances.

The pair also posed for pictures while shaking hands during the official engagement as the monarch greeted the governor in her Oak Room.

The Queen is monarch of Australia and Ms Beazley is her representative in New South Wales.

On Tuesday the Archbishop of Canterbury presented Her Majesty with a special Canterbury Cross for her "unstinting service" to the Church of England during her long reign.

The Royal Family also celebrated the Queen's grandson, Prince William, turning 40.
