Hollywood star Damian Lewis has revealed when you want a tip for the races there is no one better to ask than the Queen.

The Homeland actor reminded the monarch, a passionate horse breeder and owner, how she gave him the name of a winner when they met at an event celebrating the Prince's Trust's 40th anniversary.

Lewis and his actress wife Helen McCrory, both Prince's Trust ambassadors, joked with the Queen about her prediction skills when she toured a trust centre in London with the Prince of Wales. The actor told the Queen: "You gave me a simply fantastic tip for Royal Ascot for which I am grateful."
