PETER V’landys, the Racing NSW supremo and Australian Rugby League Chairman, was a special guest of the Queen for the royal procession which opened day two of Royal Ascot on Wednesday.
V’landys (pictured above courtesy of NEWS LTD) was accompanied by his wife Philippa in the horse-drawn carriage procession which is a tradition dating back to King George IV in 1825.
The couple’s day started when they were invited by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II to Windsor Castle for lunch with selected guests.
Then V’landys and his wife were ushered into the royal procession carriages that left Windsor Castle to arrive at Royal Ascot at 2pm sharp, local time.
Her Majesty is renowned for her knowledge and love of thoroughbred racing but it’s not known if her sporting passions extend to rugby league.
V’landys described the invitation to attend Windsor Castle and be part of the royal procession as a “humbling experience”.
V’landys sat next to the Queen at the luncheon and spoke with the monarch at length.
“The Queen is an amazing lady and she certainly knows her racing,’’ V’landys said.
“It was an honour to be invited to Windsor Castle and then to be a part of the royal procession.
