Royal Ascot horse pulling Princess Beatrice goes wild after being ‘spooked’


PRINCESS BEATRICE looked on with concern as a horse pulling her procession carriage went wild at Royal Ascot.

Beatrice, 33, was at Royal Ascot with her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and as per tradition the couple arrived in a horse-drawn carriage.

They were joined by Professor Douglas Antczak and Mrs Douglas Antczak while the Duke of Kent arrived in a separate carriage.

The princess appeared to recover soon after the horse was settled as she was later pictured smiling as she got down from the carriage.

Beatrice wore a navy midi dress with a white spot print, pairing the frock with a navy and white fascinator and black heeled pumps.

Edoardo, 38, donned the traditional top hat and a long coat over a yellow waistcoat with a navy, spotted tie.

This year’s Royal Ascot has seen a number of senior royals attend, including Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also put in an appearance, although the Queen has not attended.

The summer meet attracted some famous faces, including Made in Chelsea star Georgia Toffolo and Lady Victoria Hervey.

Racegoers had sweltered in scorching heat for the first few days of the sporting fixture, but the temperature was cooler for the fifth and final day.

Charles and Camilla took part in the traditional procession along the course when they attended on Wednesday.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex followed and Princess Beatrice at that appearance rode in the third carriage with property developer husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

On Tuesday, Beatrice had walked through the gates of Royal Ascot along with other racegoers.

The Duchess of Cambridge was left open-mouthed with joy when she appeared to pick a Royal Ascot winner.

Wearing a polka dot Alessandra Rich dress, Kate mirrored a look from yesteryear when Diana, Princess of Wales, wore a similar outfit to Ascot in 1988.

Kate looked at a guest in the royal box in shock after Perfect Power won the Commonwealth Cup on Friday with William coming over to his wife grinning.

The couple shared a few more glances before they disappeared from view, possibly for the royal to collect her winnings.

William and Kate have not attended for a number of years and received a cheer when crowds in the parade ring first caught a glimpse of the couple.

But with this week’s heat wave having passed, there was a return to the usual formalities on Saturday.
