The 96-year-old monarch is a keen equestrian and racegoer and events like Royal Ascot and the Royal Windsor Horse Show are highlights in her diary. But due to her episodic mobility issues, it's understood that the Queen has been enjoying the Berkshire races from the comfort of her house.
Earlier this month, her granddaughter Zara Tindall revealed that Her Majesty was tuning in to the Epsom Derby over the Platinum Jubilee weekend after being forced to pull out last minute.

And it sounds like she has a great set-up at home, which she is most likely repeating for Royal Ascot.
"She will be watching on the TV. She has a few runners today dotted around the country, so she knows exactly what's going on," Zara said, referring to the Derby. "She'll just be sat on the sofa watching the TV. She'll be in her comfy clothes… She's got runners today, so she'll concentrate on that and be watching the Derby."

The Queen's Windsor Castle home is a 15-minute drive away from Royal Ascot so there is still hope that she will make an appearance before the event draws to an end on Saturday.
She has more than ten horses entered over the five days of the event, with her horse Reach For The Moon odds-on to win a race on Thursday, as well as her horses Tactical and Saga standing a chance, meaning she could make an appearance then. She is also usually on hand to present the trophy to the winner of the Gold Cup.
