Dressed in their finery, the beaming Middletons looked in good spirits as they arrived side-by-side for the prestigious event at the Berkshire racecourse. 

Prince William, who led the royal carriage procession along side Queen Camilla in the absence of his father on day two of the society event, spent time chatting to his mother and father-in-law ahead of the races beginning.

Royal Ascot was established in 1711 by Queen Anne, who described Ascot as the perfect place for ‘horses to gallop at full stretch’. It has been a highlight of the racing calendar since, as well as the royal calendar.

The event a favourite of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who rarely missed it. After her death, some thought its connection with the Royal Family may have been affected.

However, King Charles has been to Royal Ascot both of the years he has been monarch, even seeing his horse Desert Hero clinch an unlikely victory in the King George V Stakes last year.
