Queen Elizabeth attends Royal Windsor Horse Show
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Thursday afternoon (12.05.16).
The 89-year-old monarch was full of smiles as she stepped out at the event, held on the grounds of Windsor Castle in Berkshire, with her husband Prince Philip after the competition was called off the day before due to poor weather.
However, the queen had more than one thing to smile about as she also managed to bag herself a free £50 supermarket voucher after her horse won at the show.
Elizabeth, who was dressed in a gilet, a baby blue blouse, a skirt, wellington boots and a floral headscarf, was seen inspecting her prize as she walked away.
The royal couple arrived at the competitive event bright and early as they rushed to the Copper Horse Ring to watch a class take place.
The show will run until May 15 and is held in celebration of the queen’s love of horses and tells the story of her life – from her birth in 1926 to her reign.
Over the course of the next two days, the monarch – who regularly rides her own horses – will be treated to something special as a parade of 900 ponies will be staged in celebration of her 90th birthday next month.
Meanwhile, a member of the royal family will attend the event every evening and Elizabeth will be the guest of honour on the last night, which will broadcast on TV.
