Cheltenham ladies first as style queens go on parade

By Nevin Farrell

The going was good when Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall - the wife of the heir to the throne - rubbed shoulders with former Page 3 girl Katie Price at Ladies Day at the Cheltenham Festival.

It was a classic example of how the popular four-day race meeting is a mixing pot of cultures where the Irish famously turn out in big numbers among their English neighbours.

It was Ladies Day at Cheltenham yesterday and fashionistas were also out in force to mix with tens of thousands of punters.

But Camilla's posing for photos with Katie Price stole much of the limelight on a day when Northern Ireland's Tony McCoy again failed to ride a winner at his last Cheltenham.

But there was a familiar ring to the name of the winner of the 1.30pm race, in which McCoy had to settle for second spot, when a horse called Windsor Park was cheered to victory.

Camilla and Katie appeared to get along well when they bumped into each other.

When asked by for a picture alongside the ex-glamour model, the Duchess was full of smiles and willingly obliged.
