Queen set to attend Royal Ascot after opening Parliament

Queen and Ryan Moore

The Queen is expected to attend day two of Royal Ascot on 21 June after the State Opening of Parliament and the Queen’s Speech earlier in the day.

Parliament’s opening and the speech had been due to take place on Monday, 19 June, but were delayed by Theresa May’s efforts to strike a deal with the DUP to back her minority government.

The delay sparked speculation the Queen may miss the afternoon action at Ascot.
