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.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to visit Ireland next month

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex to visit Ireland next month

According to the Belfast Telegraph, Harry and Meghan are expected to visit Ireland for two days of engagements, beginning on Friday, July 13.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are expected to visit Ireland in the middle of next month, very likely around Friday, July 13.

Preparations are continuing for Prince Harry and Meghan to visit, less than two months after their wedding on May 19. Sources say they are likely to take part in a series of engagements over the course of two days.

It will be a second royal visit of the summer, as Prince Charles and wife Camilla are expected in Cork later this week for a three-day visit which will also include visits to Kerry.

Officials hope the publicity around these visits may prove helpful in Anglo-Irish relations at a time when Brexit has created a considerable strain between the two governments.

The British Embassy has so far remained tight-lipped about the arrangements.

Harry has never visited the Republic before, but Meghan spent time there as an ambassador for the One Young World summit in 2014.

This would be the Duchess’ second visit to Ireland. In 2014, she attended the One Young World summit in Dublin. You can find photos of the summit in our gallery. Earlier this year, in March, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex visited Northern Ireland for a day of engagements.
