Welcome back to a bonus episode of A Right Royal Podcast with your hosts, Andrea Caamano and Emmy Griffiths! For a very special minisode following our Trooping the Colour episode (available on Spotify, Apple, etc), we are back sooner than expected because we couldn’t resist breaking down those oh-so-special royal appearances at one of the family’s favourite events - Royal Ascot!

Joining us is photographer James Whatling, who was all about wearing comfy shoes for a day at the races, and who shared the thrill of capturing the royal family letting their guard down while watching the races, including a very sweet sentimental moment from King Charles following the late Queen’s horse win.
