King Charles and Queen Camilla return to Royal Ascot for final day

King Charles and Queen Camilla kicked off Royal Ascot's fifth day in style, as they were seen leading the carriage procession alongside Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani and Lady Charles Spencer-Churchill during this annual horse racing event in Berkshire.

Joining thousands of race-goers for an afternoon filled with equestrian action, Charles and Camilla, who recently made a major rule break, invited their close family and friends to witness the spectacle on the lush racecourse.

Notable figures such as trainers Willie Mullins and Jamie Snowden along with their partners were included in the procession, joined by illustrious individuals like the Earl De La Warr, Sir Michael Stevens and Saudi businessman Wafic Said.

Ever-present this season at Royal Ascot, the King and Queen have enthusiastically filled in boots of the late Queen Elizabeth II, who was known for her adoration for this Berkshire meet - a standout event in the racing calendar.

Ascot has been a notable event ever since its inception in 1711 by Queen Anne who deemed it perfect for "horses to gallop at full stretch". It continues to be a highlight not only in the world of horse racing but also in the Royal family's social diary.

Another interesting development is that Charles and Camilla have inherited the late Queen's thoroughbred horses. And they already had reason to rejoice last year when their horse, Desert Hero, clinched victory in the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Over the past few days, they have witnessed some of the nation's top jockeys, trainers, and horses vying for victory on the world-renowned course, which was established following Queen Anne's 1711 proclamation that Ascot was perfect for "horses to gallop at full stretch".

The whole week has been a star studded affair as stars also dug out their most chic outfits on Tuesday (18 June) as they descended on Ascot Racecourse to kick off a week of thrilling horse racing and high fashion at Royal Ascot.

From Strictly Come Dancing and Good Morning Britain to DIY: SOS, familiar faces from all over the small screen dressed up for the occasion. Nick Knowles was accompanied by his fiancée Katie Dadzie as the couple looked stunning in matching navy ensembles.

Charlotte Hawkins was a vision in red as she dug out her best fascinator and midi gown for the occasion, while former Strictly Come Dancing professional Ola Jordan got stuck into the action of the day - which was also attended by the King and Queen.

The King also provided a heart-warming sense of support to Lady Gabriella Kingston following the tragic death of her husband, Thomas Kingston, earlier this year.

One of the greatest shows of respect and admiration the monarch can make during Ascot week is personally inviting relatives or friends to ride in one of the four Ascot Landau carriages on each day of the procession.

Lady Gabriella will ride in the second carriage alongside Princess Anne, Peter Phillips and the King's riding manager, John Warren.
