The Royal Family attends the 1st day of Royal Ascot

Earlier today, The Duchess of Sussex made her debut at Royal Ascot with her husband and other members of the Royal Family. Meghan and Harry handed over the prize to the winner of the St James’ Palace Stakes, Frankie Dettori and his horse Wihtout Parole. She was also seen chatting with her father-in-law, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and The Queen.

Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £7.3m in prize money. Our eighteen Group races, eight of them Group One, have made household names of Royal Ascot winners like Black Caviar, Frankel and Yeats. Each year the meeting is broadcast to audiences around the globe, yet to experience it in person is something altogether more special.
