The Queen makes special appearance at Royal Ascot

The Queen beamed when she arrived at Royal Ascot for the first time since 2019.

Usually a regular at the famous Berkshire gathering, the Queen has not been present since it started on Tuesday.

The monarch also missed the race last year as it was held behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But on Saturday the Queen defied the gray weather to cheer on the four horses in their colors purple and gold.

She arrived at the Paradering at 2 p.m. in a beige car. She wore lime green clothes and a matching hat to cheer and applaud the crowd.

Your horses Reach For The Moon, Tactical, Light Refrain and King’s Lynn will run in the afternoon.

Gamblers love to bet on the color of the queen’s hat, and this year bookies had said the most popular predictions were blue and green due to the change in weather.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “Green was considered the favorite but red is the mover after the money came earlier today.”

The Queen’s eldest grandson, Peter Phillips, was also seen arriving earlier in the day.

The carriage procession, which usually takes place on every race day, did not take place.
