The Queen visits the Royal Windsor Horse show after her Scotland trip

Back again! The Queen delights royal fans with a Sunday appearance – her fourth visit of the week – on the final day of the Royal Windsor Horse show

  • The Queen, 95, visited the Royal Windsor Horse Show again this morning 
  • She donned a grey overcoat with sunglasses and a headscarf for the prestigious equestrian event, which she has visited four times since Thursday
  • Earlier in the week, she returned from Scotland where she had carried out a series of events with Princess Anne, and was joined by Prince William 

Despite a busy week of engagements in Scotland and grey skies above, the Queen looked on sprightly form as she visited Royal Windsor Horse Show on Sunday morning – her fourth visit in as many days. 

The Monarch, 95, known for her life-long love of horses, was spotted strolling around the event wearing a large overcoat, emerald headscarf and sunglasses.  

It’s just days since she returned from Scotland, after spending time with Prince William, 38, and Princess Anne, 70, on a series of engagements north of the border.

Today marks the annual horse show’s final day since it opened on Thursday; it was delayed last year due to the pandemic.

The sovereign looked relaxed during this morning’s outing, with her hair tucked under a headscarf in case of a spot of rain.  

The Queen donned a buttoned grey overcoat which covered a dress, with leather brogues in a shade of chestnut.

The green and blue scarf offered a pop of colour to her weather-beating outfit. She was also wearing a pair of oval-shaped sunglasses.   

The Horse Show has long been one of the Queen’s favourite event, and this year, after it was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, she was clearly keen to attend upon her return from Scotland.

Her daughter-in-law Sophie Wessex, 56, was spotted at the show on its second day this Thursday and was joined by her daughter Lady Louise Windsor, 16, her husband Prince Edward and her royal mother-in-law on Saturday for a fun family day out.  

The 95-year-old monarch is a regular fixture at the event, which is now in its 77th year and attracts well-heeled visitors from all over the world.

Her Majesty is is believed to have attended every single year since it began as a wartime fundraising event back in 1943.

Onlookers seemed delighted to see the Queen visit what as long been described as her favourite event of the year

Her Majesty, who had an audience with Angela Merkel at Windsor Castle on Friday, as the German chancellor continued her valedictory visit to Britain, was first seen arriving at the prestigious equestrian event on Thursday. 

Wearing a beaming smile, the Queen donned her signature colour-block style, and paired black, loafer shoes with a knee length turquoise coat. 

Then on Saturday, while she started the day in a casual outfit, wearing a gilet over a cardigan, she later performed an outfit change to deliver prizes at the show.

Last year the show was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and went online instead.

The event was first cancelled in 2001 due to foot and mouth disease, while one day of the show was previously cancelled in May 2016 due to flooding. 

Sophie appeared relaxed in a tweed blazer, teamed with figure-hugging jeans, a smart shirt and fashionable tan boots. She completed her elegant look with a navy hat adorned with a leather band, golden brooch and brown and blue feathers.

Her 17-year-old daughter, who is a keen equestrian and is often spotted out riding with her father, the Earl of Wessex, looked equally stylish in a navy blazer, paired with a green shirt and bootcut trousers.

Lady Louise also takes after her late grandfather Prince Philip, having inherited his love of carriage driving and proved herself a talented driver from a young age. In May 2017 she made her debut at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, leading the Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet of the British Driving Society into the showground.
