At the annual horse race in Ascot, nothing is as important as the hat: Queen Máxima raised the bar, but the eye-catcher on Tuesday was another Royal – and she did not score with her headgear.
Royales showcases: the traditional horse race in Ascot on Tuesday was like a big family reunion for the British Queen Elizabeth II. The 93-year-old Queen was accompanied by her children and grandchildren despite the rain. Prince Harry and Meghan, who gave birth to little Archie just six weeks ago, stayed away from the event near London.
For this, the Dutch king Willem-Alexander and his wife Máxima accompanied the monarch and drove together with her in a coach. Elizabeth II had Willem-Alexander and the Spanish King Felipe VI. recorded on Monday in a magnificent ceremony in the Hosenbandorden. It is the most important order of knights in the United Kingdom. Felipe and his wife Letizia were not part of the party on Tuesday.
