Princess Anne and Family

Zara Tindall and Autumn Phillips bring the fun to Royal Ascot



Day three of Royal Ascot is underway in Berkshire, with The Queen and members of her family attending the five-day meeting.

Each day, different members of The Royal Family, as well as their friends and members of staff, arrive at the racecourse via a horse-drawn carriage.

The carriage procession on Thursday was dominated by Princess Anne and her family, with all of her children and their spouses taking part in the traditional pomp and ceremony.

Sitting in the 3rd carriage was the Princess Royal’s two children, Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips.

They were joined by their spouses, Mike and Autumn, who seemed to be having a great time in the procession.

Zara and Autumn sat next to each other in their carriage and could be seen laughing and joking as they waved to the large crowd.

Peter and Mike sat opposite them and were also having visibly animated conversations.

Zara was dressed in an ocean blue outfit with a matching hat, whereas Autumn wore a floral white and pink design.

The Princess Royal and her husband, Sir Tim Laurence, sat in the first carriage in the procession alongside The Queen and the Duke of York.
