Just four weeks after marrying, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were again greeted with a rapturous welcome from fans, this time as they attended a day at the races.

Harry and Meghan were among several members of the royal family who joined the Queen on the first day of Royal Ascot.

While the Queen chose a yellow hat, and Meghan wore white with black accents, other racergoers donned fascinating headgear from florals to feathers.
