Activists breach security at Windsor horse show days before royal wedding

Queen Elizabeth's Horse Show Outing Is a Master Class in Royal Side Eye

Queen Elizabeth's Horse Show Outing Is a Master Class in Royal Side Eye

Britain's Prince Philip drove to a horse show in Windsor on Friday, the first public sighting of Queen Elizabeth's 96-year-old husband since he left hospital last month after a hip replacement. The Royal Windsor Horse Show is the largest outdoor British horse show taking place over the course of several days.

Philip appeared to be in good health at the wheel of a Land Rover Freelander, as he joined hundreds of spectators at the final day of the event.

The mother-and-daughter arrived at the event on a horse and cart driven by young Louise who is a keen rider. It was unclear whether Thomas would take part in the lavish celebration as he has shied away from the spotlight ever since Meghan and Prince Harry's engagement was announced, and lives a quiet life of retirement in Mexico.

She watched her horse "Sparkler" (top notch name) compete in the Flat Ridden Sport Horse class, and all the ponies pleased her very much.

Lady Louise is already an accomplished horsewoman and has previously competed in carriage driving at the event.

Palace officials have said he plans to attend next week's wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle if he is well enough to do so.

Arriving shortly afterwards was the Queen's cousin and his wife Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.

His royal highness joined hundreds of spectators for the final day of the five-day event, which includes global jumping and dressage in the picturesque castle grounds.

It takes place from May 9-13 and includes global jumping and dressage events, among others.
