    TV presenter Alan Titchmarsh said: "For 70 years there has been one constant heartbeat of this nation, and that heart belongs to Her Majesty The Queen.

    "As commander and chief of the Armed Forces, head of the Commonwealth, leader of the nation we are proud to live in. We sometimes forget that our head of state is actually a person, feels as we do, enjoys the things we do, and is very much a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother as well as being our monarch."

    The ceremony paid tribute to the late Duke of Edinburgh and his "love of carriage driving" as his grand-daughter Lady Louise Windsor drove his exercise carriage around the arena.

    Titchmarsh added: "One of Her Majesty's personal pleasures is horses and ponies in all their guises.

    "One thing the Queen takes great happiness from is her family's involvement in her love, whether it be racing, eventing, showing rare breeds or just riding out in Windsor great park."

    “She has been a constant, reassuring presence in our national life.”

    Sussexes 'huge assets' to the royal family

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are 'huge assets' to the royal family, and when Prince Charles becomes King he 'will need' them back, claims a royal author.

    On this week’s episode of “Royally Obsessed,” Tina Brown, author of the new book The Palace Papers said: “My guess is Charles is really going to want them back—sort of need them back, actually—because Harry and Meghan were huge assets to the whole royal repertoire, quite frankly.

    “They had a young appeal that was very, very potent in the country.”

    Backing Ms Brown's claims, Kinsey Schofield, royal expert and founder of ToDiForDaily.com, told the Express that Charles has a “very soft heart” and is “anxious to start the healing process” with Harry.

    “I think he’s desperately in love with Prince Harry—he loves Prince Harry,” she says.

    “He doesn’t like his actions, but Prince Harry is his DNA, and he does hurt when they’re not talking, he does hurt when things aren’t on the right path, and I think he’s anxious to start the healing process. I think that Prince Charles is very forgiving.”
