Looks like a little R&R is all Queen Elizabeth needed!

Just a couple months after a “heavy cold” sidelined her from her usual holiday appearances, the Queen appears rested and refreshed. In fact, she’s never looked better.

There’s no denying the Queen has been sporting a definite glow since celebrating her Sapphire Jubilee on Feb. 5, marking 65 years on the throne.

Just look at that rosy complexion and those sparkling eyes!

We don’t know what was giving off more warmth as she met with dignitaries at Buckingham Palace on Feb. 21: the electric logs in the fireplace or her smile!

Her smile is beyond infectious. Order of the British Empire (OBE) recipient Naomie Harris couldn’t help but grin ear-to-ear while in the Queen’s presence during her ceremony on Thursday.

Even Harris commented on the Queen’s fresh appearance.

“I was impressed by how youthful she looked,” the Moonlight star told reporters. “She looked incredibly young and really healthy – and she has good skin.”

A little time away from the public eye served the Queen well. She’s tackling 2017 with the liveliness and moxie one could only expect from Britain’s longest-serving monarch.
