A very Royal As­cot

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - ROYALS -

De­spite months of fab­u­lous – and ex­haust­ing – birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, the Queen still had en­ergy to spare to en­joy one of her favourite events of the year, Royal As­cot. In high spir­its, Her Majesty at­tended through­out the rac­ing fes­ti­val with her fam­ily by her side and was reg­u­larly greeted with cheers of “Hip, hip hooray!” In a piece of per­fect tim­ing, the Queen’s horse, Dartmouth, won the Hard­wicke Stakes and it was Princess Beatrice who handed Granny her tro­phy.

Clock­wise from top left: The Queen ar­riv­ing at Royal As­cot with Prince Philip, Prince An­drew and Prince Harry; the Queen and So­phie,

Count­ess of Wes­sex, en­joy the sec­ond day at As­cot; re­ceiv­ing her win­ner’s tro­phy from Princess Beatrice.
