Toff opted for a glamorous coat of make-up and wore her hair up, while boosting her petite frame with a pair of heels which featured a bejewelled bow on the front.

'So this is a rented bag from By Rotation. My dress is being made in partnership with Hannah Sophia,' she said as she clumsily adjusted her fallen shoulder sleeve. 'And I've got sticky tape everywhere so my t**s don't fall out. Wait a minute, I'm a bit tired. Jesus Christ I've just seen a horse!'

Earlier this month, The Telegraph reported the Queen, 95, - an avid horse racing fan - would not attend this year's Ascot because of ongoing restrictions.   

Ascot had been planning for an attendance of 4,000 a day. The new figure will allow all those who rolled over 2020 bookings to be accommodated with a 'material but not significant' number of tickets left over, according to a track spokesperson.

The number of spectators will be well below the usual attendance of over 300,000 over the five days but the increased number was welcomed by Frankie Dettori, whose 73 royal meeting victories have only been bettered by Lester Piggott (116).

Glamorous: The broadcaster turned heads in her bright yellow fascinator which had a bow design

Dettori, who was leading rider at the royal meeting for the seventh time last year, said: 'There's nothing better than Royal Ascot with people. I know it's not 60,000 (a day) but it's better than what we thought. 

'Last year I was leading rider at Royal Ascot and won three Group Ones, including the Gold Cup. To have nobody there to see any of that, it was like someone had cut my arm off.

'Those are the biggest races we've got here and I won them in front of empty grandstands. It goes without saying it wasn't the same.'

Visitors to the Royal and Queen Anne enclosures have to abide by a strict dress code, which does not allow bare midriffs or strapless dresses, but for guests in the Windsor and other enclosures the rules are more relaxed. 

With the clue in the name, Royal Ascot is hugely popular with the monarchy and Her Majesty is usually a regular at the event. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, she had attended every year since ascending the throne. 

Last year, dedicated Royal Ascot showed off their finest frocks and fascinators while celebrating the fourth day of the racing meet at home.

Chic: The Queen's granddaughter looked elegant in her polka dot ensemble as she watched the races with her husband Mike and best friend Dolly Maude

Thirsty: Spencer posed for the cameras with a cheeky grin as he filled up some of the bottles

Even the most committed fans were left watching jockeys riding, wearing face masks, broadcast virtually.

Among the racing enthusiasts who stayed at home was the Queen, who has been forced to watch the event from Windsor Castle for the first time in her 68-year reign.

In an emotional note shared last year, Her Majesty praised the 'valiant' efforts of organisers and said she is sure it will still be the 'highlight' of the racing calendar, despite the 'different' circumstances.
