The Prince and Princess of Wales joined racegoers at Royal Ascot on Friday when they took part in the traditional carriage procession with the King and Queen.

William and Kate made their first appearance of the week at the famous race meeting in Berkshire, the day after the King had celebrated his first Ascot win.

The Royal couple were joined in the carriage procession by the Duchess of Edinburgh, Princess Beatrice and her husband, Edo Mapelli Mozzi, and the actress Dame Judi Dench.

Kate wore a red dress by Alexander McQueen and a Philip Treacy hat while William, along with the other Royal men, was dressed in a morning suit and a top hat.

The couple live close to the racecourse, having moved to the four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage in Windsor's Home Park last summer.

They were recently spotted with their eldest son, Prince George, at Eton College, William's former school, prompting speculation that the young royal, who is 10 next month, will follow in the footsteps of his father.

William and Kate were frequent guests of the late Queen at Royal Ascot, a racecourse with which she had a great affinity, celebrating 24 winners there across six decades.

She never missed attending the event in person up until last year, when she opted to watch it on television at Windsor Castle.

Charles and Camilla appeared ecstatic when their thoroughbred Desert Hero, an 18-1 long shot, won the King George V Stakes on Thursday, and they have another chance of victory when Candle of Hope rides in the Sandringham Stakes later on Friday.
