Diamond Jubilee Exhibition – Royal Ascot during the reign of Her Majesty The Queen

The Ascot Authority is staging this exhibition to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee and to thank Her Majesty The Queen for her patronage and for her support of Ascot Racecourse and Royal Ascot during her reign.

 The display, which uses photographs from Getty Images Gallery, shows many memorable moments, including the Royal Procession, The Queen’s first Royal Ascot winner and the royal party riding on the racecourse.

 The changing face of the Royal Meeting and of the racecourse over six decades is also illustrated. Fashion icons, the altering preference for grey and black top hats, great jockeys of the time and the opening of the magnificent new stand in 2006 are just a few of the sixty subjects.
