(ANSA) – ROME, JUN 18 – Queen Elizabeth of England for the first time since her coronation did not participate in any of the 5 days of Royal Ascot, the famous horse race where noblewomen and celebrities compete to show off the most outfits flashy, especially the hats. This was confirmed by the heads of the Ascot racecourse, quoted by Sky News, specifying that the sovereign continues to have “mobility problems” that have not allowed her to attend.

Elizabeth II intervened for the first time at Royal Ascot in 1946 and since her accession to the throne 70 years ago she has always participated in at least one day of racing (she is a great lover of horses; those of her stable – over 10 this year – compete regularly and over the years they have amassed great victories at Ascot), with the exception of 2020, when the Covid pandemic caused racing to be held behind closed doors.

The Royal House was represented by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who paraded as usual in a carriage on the track before the start of the races last Tuesday. Ascot is a short distance from Windsor Castle, one of the sovereign’s residences. (HANDLE).
