Royal Ascot 2018: The Queen joins Prince Charles and Camilla for royal procession hours after carriage horse broke lose

The Queen has arrived at Royal Ascot 2018 in her traditional procession, just hours after a carriage horse broke loose and reportedly went on the run in a car park.
Racing officials confirmed the horse was "quickly caught" and returned to the royal fold, ahead of the daily royal spectacle, which featured the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall for the second day running.
Clouds were threatening downpours earlier but the sunshine has finally showed its face and temperatures have soared to 24C just as the daily procession began.
Charles and Camilla are due to present the winning prizes in the aptly named Prince of Wales's Stakes at 4.20pm, after the Earl of Wessex will perform the same role in the Duke of Cambridge Stakes at 3.40pm.
Twitter users reported a horse had gotten loose just before 1pm today in the "number 1 car park," and an Ascot spokesperson later confirmed to the Mirror Onlinbe that "a carriage horse got loose and was quickly caught."
Glam ladies and dapper gents poured into the Berkshire race course joined by a host of celebrities for day two of the sporting bonanza.
