What makes it Royal?
Established in 1711 by Queen Anne, Royal Ascot has been a remarkable tradition ever since. With the highest levels of races and large grand prizes available, the races are the most valuable in the UK.
Year after year, the British monarch attends and at 2pm every day the Queen and numerous royals enter via a procession in horse-drawn carriages. A beautiful spectacle.
The carriages travel down the race track and into the parade ring. After that, they enter the Royal Enclosure – the most exclusive ‘invitation only’ enclosure at Ascot.
According to historians, in 1711, Queen Anne rode her horse from Windsor Castle to Ascot and said, ‘This would be a fine place for a race.’
And the rest is history. Some three hundred plus years later, the tradition still stands strong.
