Camilla Pays Tribute To Queen By Wearing Brooch At Cheltenham Festival

Camilla Pays Tribute To Queen By Wearing Brooch At Cheltenham Festival

The royal attended the Cheltenham Festival on Wednesday, one of the most high-profile horse racing events of the spring.

For the occasion, Camilla bundled up against the chilly weather in a fur-trimmed tan suede hat and matching overcoat which she accessorized with a silver brooch featuring a galloping white horse and jockey.

The accessory formerly belonged to the late monarch as she was a passionate horse owner, racer, and breeder throughout her life.

The reason for Queen Consort Camilla’s visit to the races was specifically to attend the Queen Mother Champion Steeplechase, named for Queen Elizabeth’s mother.

Prior to the race, she also visited the paddock to check on the day’s equine competitors before presenting the winner with a trophy at the end of the race.

In addition to supporting the sporting event, Camilla is also keeping the monarch’s legacy alive by personally supporting a number of equestrian charities, including the Ebony Horse Club, the Brooke Hospital for Animals, and the British Equestrian Federation.

While Camilla has been attending the Cheltenham races for years, Queen Elizabeth was more interested in flat racing and was regularly a special guest at the Royal Ascot held in June. And the queen consort isn’t the only member of the royal family who’s a fan of the annual racing event.

On Tuesday, King Charles’s niece Zara Tindall also attended with her husband Mike Tindall to kick off the week-long event, returning the next day as well to take in even more races.
