Ever since Royal Ascot was founded by Queen Anne in 1711, the annual 5-day event has allowed the royal family to make countless memories with one another. The Queen is a particularly big fan of horse racing (and has her own race horses), so it's a big family affair. In June the family gathers at Ascot Racecourse to enjoy some racing and betting in their Sunday best. Last year was the Queen's 65th year attending the annual event, and she'll be back again for 2019.

From the Queen's bright outfits to Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice's celebrations, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's first time at the event together, these photos will mke you feel like you were actually there. If you've never had an invite into the royal enclosure, we've rounded up some of our favourite moments the royals have shared at Ascot over the years.
