They led the traditional carriage procession alongside Sheikh Abdullah and Lady Charles Spencer-Churchill.

Charles and Camilla’ horse Hard to Resist was a longshot in the Sandringham Stakes yesterday with odds of 40-1, and finished way adrift of the leading riders.

Two royal horses have been entered for the final day of Royal Ascot, with Desert Hero expected to start in the Hardwicke Stakes and Treasure in the Golden Gates Stakes.

Charles and Camilla have become firm supporters of Royal Ascot since the death of Queen Elizabeth II, who rarely missed the Berkshire meet – one of the highlights of the racing calendar.

Over the past few days, they have watched some of the country’s leading jockeys, trainers and horses compete on the world famous course, established after Queen Anne declared in 1711 Ascot was ideal for “horses to gallop at full stretch”.
