In Pictures: Hats off as Harry and Meghan join the Queen at Royal Ascot

The newly married couple took part in the popular carriage procession with other members of the royal family.

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.
