Prince Harry's shock as jockey Frankie Dettori kisses Meghan Markle

Prince Harry's shock as jockey Frankie Dettori kisses Meghan Markle

The newlyweds received an eager welcome when they arrived at the event, which is popular with fans of the Royal Family and considered one of the events of the high society social calendar.

Also in attendance were the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Thomas Markle admitted to staging paparazzi pictures before his daughter Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in May, and he wasn't there on the big day to celebrate.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex also presented the trophy for the 4.20pm race, the St James' Palace Stakes, which was won by Frankie Dettori on Without Parole.

He added: "Well, we live to fight another day and hopefully we can win back our loses tomorrow, our early favourite is pink at 9-4".

Meghan coordinated her outfit with husband Harry.

It's understood the dress is by Givenchy, the same fashion house that made her wedding dress.

Therefore, while Harry and Meghan's choice of tour is perfectly normal, it is a royal first for the traditional family, with the Queen only making her first visit to the region in 2011, after being monarch for over half a century.

Punters traditionally have a flutter on the colour of the Queen's hat and she was wearing the bookie's favourite, yellow, as part of a matching outfit which included a dress and coat all by Angela Kelly.

It's not much of a surprise to see Markle wearing another frock from Givenchy's United Kingdom -born creative director, Clare Waight Keller, as she also stepped out in a dress from the designer for her first solo appearance alongside Queen Elizabeth II last week.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot one month ago, receiving the title, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, from the Queen as a wedding gift.

"As the royal meeting has evolved in recent times, it remains one of Britain's finest sporting occasions with 300,000 racegoers enjoying the unique heritage of Royal Ascot every year, and many more people watching at home".

They appeared to be very comfortable in one another's company, sharing jokes and a laugh during the day's events.
