A colour Her Majesty reserves for the more special occasions, including for her 90th birthday in 2016, and her first official solo outing with Meghan Markle in 2018, wear she again wore mint green.

Usually a regular at the famous Berkshire meet, the Queen had been a no-show since it began on Tuesday.

An announcement at the event on Saturday afternoon said: “Ladies and gentlemen we are pleased to announce that Her Majesty the Queen will be arriving at the Parade Ring at 2pm.”

A large police presence was in the area along with members of the Queen’s Guard.

Her horses Reach For The Moon, Tactical, Light Refrain, and King’s Lynn ran during the afternoon.

Punters like to bet on the colour of the Queen’s hat and this year bookmakers had said the most popular predictions were blue and green due to the change in weather.
