Prince Philip

THE Queen has arrived at Royal Ascot for the first time without her beloved Prince Philip.

Her Majesty is a regular at the royal meet - and has arrived for the first time since the action started on Tuesday in a stunning mint green dress.

Attending day five of the races, Her Majesty stepped out in a gorgeous dress with a matching hat and pink floral detailing.

She beamed as she was welcomed by her friends and family.

This is the first time the Queen has attended Royal Ascot since 2019 - as the races were called off during the Covid lockdown last year.

Her Majesty today waved to the large crowd cheering and applauding her arrival as the national anthem played.

Reach For The Moon, Tactical, King's Lynn and Light Reform are all declared to run on Saturday in her famous silks.

The usual carriage procession that precedes each day's racing is unlikely to take place.

But given the current weather that may be a wise decision anyway.

The last time a day's action at Royal Ascot was lost to the rain was in 1964.

Royal Ascot was previously hit by bad weather in 2016 and 2019 - but racing continued unaffected in both years.

The Queen will watch in person for the first time this week with her security detail having been on standby all week.
