In the absence of the Queen (who had an Audience with her Australian Prime Minister at Windsor Castle), the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were joined by the Princess Royal, Earl and Countess of Wessex, and Zara and Mike Tindall. Due to the ongoing Pandemic, there was no procession from Windsor Castle to the Ascot Racecourse in horse-drawn landaus, and the members of the Royal Family and their guests spent the day in the Royal Enclosure.
