The 92-year-old monarch looked radiant in yellow alongside Anne, the Princess Royal.

This year marks a very special occasion for the Royal Family as the Queen invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to join her in the royal box this week at the Berkshire race course.

A carriage procession, with the Queen at its head, signals the start of each day of the event, and Harry and Meghan could be part of the spectacle.

The Queen’s decision to invite Meghan to the famous sporting event comes after the pair enjoyed an overnight trip and day of engagements in Cheshire last week.

The move shows Meghan, 36, has been fully welcomed in to the firm, just days after she was pictured getting on famously with her new grandmother-in-law.

Ascot is the Queen’s favourite week of the racing calendar.
