Royal fans will no doubt have noticed that Mike has been sporting a new accessory this week – a flat cap. Opening up about why he has been sporting it, he revealed it was due to an injury sustained at the weekend when he played in the England Rugby Legends v Ireland Rugby Legends match.

"My knees don't have any skin on them and I've got this on my forehead," he said, showing his bruise to Janet Hughes.

Zara also spoke out on Thursday and revealed her St Patrick's Day plans to ITV Racing.

"It's so exciting to be back but the main thing is the horses, the jockeys the support teams behind them, but to have everyone back, you those horses notice there's a crowd and the jockeys and they race to the action, so to have a crowd back for the hoses and they know when they've won is great," she said of the crowds being allowed back into the Festival after the pandemic.

Of her plans for the day, she added: "I am. Getting those pints in."
