10 years younger possibly??
Both HM and the DoE look and act, at the least, 10 years younger than they actaully are. Besides the longevity gene, good diet and plenty of exercise keeps them healthy.

They say that eventually age catches up to you. These two are always constantly on the go and giving age a run for its money.

Elegant in pink, the Queen and Prince Philip make it a very Royal Ascot: Everyone turns out in their finest - and even the sun comes out | Mail Online

I was at Ascot yesterday and I loved every minute of it. It was such a beautiful day weather wise which made the day even better. I saw the Queen and Philip go past in the procession and she waved at us! (Or our general direction but I like to think it was just at us....)

I live 40 minutes from Ascot so it's not too bad. We were only in the Silver Ring as we had never been before so didn't know what to expect. We have decided now though we are going to fork out the extra for the Grandstand next year! We kept seeing people who were going to the Royal Enclosure as they had their name badges on. We were very jealous of them all. It was a really fun day out and it was quite exciting to see the horses race past. You also can't help but get really into it and scream for your horse. It made me think of the when we see the Royals in the Royal Box cheering their horses on - we all do the same thing, we just aren't being photographed doing it!

It was interesting to learn that Queen Elizabeth II's racing colors were adopted from those used by King Edward VII.

It is unclear whether or not Sheikh Hamad bin Abdullah Al-Thani and Sheikha Amna bint Mohammed Al-Thani were promised to ride a carriage with the Queen. It appears that the aforementioned people thought that they would because they sponsored the event. Lady Elizabeth Anson failed to diplomatically diffuse the situation.
I wonder why the Gulf royals sponsor the Royal Ascot.

I think perhaps that as prestigious as Royal Ascot is and being invited to sit in the Royal Ascot box is, to sponsor the event is even as prestigious and an honor. I really doubt that Ascot is hurting for sponsors for Royal Ascot Week.

I am tending to believe there was a snafu or a misunderstanding when it came to the carriage procession and riding with HM. The Emir of Qatar had ridden with HM the day previously and perhaps that's where it was assumed that Sheikha Amna bint Mohammed Al-Thani and her son would ride the next day. I think with the differences in languages, it may have been a misunderstanding of two simple words; with and in. They were to ride IN the Queen's carriage procession and not WITH the Queen in the carriage procession.

Regardless, I cannot believe that any of the British Royal Family or Lady Elizabeth Anson would ever dream of deliberately insulting the Qatari royal family.
