On Thursday afternoon, King Charles (74) and Queen Camilla (75) were moved to tears after their champion desert steeds won the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot for the first time.
After the victory, the royal couple was visibly overpowered, and thus a royal blunder occurred.
I knocked on the cup
Queen Camilla was pictured wiping away her tears, and the king didn’t hold back his emotions either.
When they were about to look at the cup, a passionate King Charles accidentally knocked it down. However, he took the situation with a smile.
Many media outlets covered the incident, incl The telegraph.
This is King’s first win after losing three races so far on Tuesday and Wednesday.
– Sweet and bitter
Princess Anne’s daughter, 72, Zara Tindall, 42, was also present at the occasion, describing the victory as “bittersweet,” according to The Telegraph. She explained that the late Queen Elizabeth would have been overjoyed at the royal victory.
— but to have a winner for Charles and Camilla and to keep that dream alive was awesome. What a race, said Tindall, according to the paper.
Queen Elizabeth won with her horse just two weeks and four days after she was crowned Queen of Great Britain in 1953.
The king’s victory came six weeks and four days after his coronation.
