Since her accession to the throne in 1952, Her Majesty The Queen has been part of the fabric of Ascot Racecourse, the Royal Racecourse.

In the year of Her Majesty's 90th birthday we celebrate The Queen’s love of horse racing with a look back at Her past winners at Royal Ascot, featuring personal recollections from her daughter, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal.

No Royal Ascot for William and Catherine tomorrow as they're special guests at the Irish Garden party.

It is not a big loss. Hopefully, we shall see the Kents, the Linleys, and Sophie, The Countess of Wessex.

William and Kate have never attended Ascot so I would be pleasantly surprised if they did attend any day this year. Harry has been present for the past couple of years so perhaps William now feels he should go too. I don't think he's particularly interested in horse racing like his father and uncles etc.

Charles, Camilla, Beatrice and Charles Fellowes in the second carriage.

Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Anne and Lord Vestey in the third carriage.

Vicount and Viscountess Petersham (Serena Linley's brother and sister-in-law) and The Duke and Duchess of Argyll in the fourth carriage.

True, but Ascot is not an one day event. It runs Tuesday-Saturday. I doubt they would be back or ready for tomorrow Duke of Cambridge stakes, but ladies day is Thursday. It is a popular day for royals to attend. But would be surprised if we see the Cambridges even if back.

William has an engagement on Thursday. Two less royals at Ascot isn't a big deal. There is plenty of them there. It's mainly a chance for people to dress up, drink and bet on horses. It isn't a charity fundraiser like the Royal variety show or when the do Royal movie premieres.

There's a lot of talk about them attending this week. Also a Royal reporter has mentioned that there will be a few Royal surprises this week. So I guess it's all a wait and see.

The Cambridge's should go to Royal Ascot when they can. It really don't make much sense for them to not attend on a yearly bases.

The Daily Fail are known for their obvious errors, spelling mistakes and mix up of royals. Honestly, it makes me wonder if their articles ever get read and checked for mistakes before they are submitted to the site - and also how their journalists/publishers passed their English exams!

Back on topic, thank you to those who shared the photos of Royal Ascot today. I wonder if HM's horse, Dartmouth, will win this year as he will be competing. I hope that the Cambridges can attend one time, I'm looking forward into seeing what Catherine will wear. I'm probably incorrect but I don't recall Harry attending before, is this is first time or not?

Royal Ascot may not be a charity event, but it isn't 'simply an excuse to drink'. It is a 305 year old tradition started during the reign of Queen Anne, which has become a central event for the royal family for generations. Considering William will be king one day, it would be nice if he and his wife made an attempt to attend. I am certain some time in the 5 day event, the couple could find a few hours to attend. Like the royal garden parties, they may seem just reasons to socialize but they are important traditions.

People invited to garden parties at the various royal palaces have done something to get them there. It's a way to honor people involved in their communities. To get into Ascot, you just have to buy a ticket.
