Even with dark clouds threatening overhead, the Queen brought a splash of brightness to Epsom racecourse on Saturday. The horse-loving monarch joined thousands of spectators at the track for this year's historic Derby Day.
Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, the British royal was resplendent in a long cerise coat over a cheery floral frock. The outfit was finished off with a matching hat featuring feathers and a striking blue stripe.
The Queen watched the historic Derby – known as the world's greatest flat race – from the royal balcony, where she chatted happily to Prince Phillip and followed proceedings with the help of binoculars.
Also taking a keen interest in events was Princess Haya of Jordan, whose horse, New Approach, won Saturday's exciting race.
It was a dream come true for the pretty brunette, who was given the two-year-old Irish colt by her husband, Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum of Dubai.
"It is such an amazing feeling," she said, "I can't believe it."
