Sarah, Duchess of York, divorced the Queen's son Prince Andrew 22 years ago, but the couple has remained close. And at Royal Ascot, she even sat in the Royal Box with Queen Elizabeth II herself.

After curtsying to the monarch during the the royal procession alongside her daughter Princess Beatrice and her ex-husband, the 58-year-old was photographed chatting with the Queen.


She was also pictured adjusting something on the Duke of York's lapel as their eldest daughter watched. According to the Daily Mail, this is the fourth year in a row that Fergie has attended Royal Ascot as a guest of the Queen. That day, she wore a navy Roland Mouret dress, a hat by Philip Treacy, and shoes by Rene Mancini.

Another recent royal event she attended was the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's wedding in May, although she was reportedly not invited to the intimate evening reception at Frogmore House.

Yesterday she posted a Royal Ascot tribute to both of her daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, on Instagram.

The next major event she's set to focus on is the wedding of her younger daughter, who is planning to marry Jack Brooksbank at St George's Chapel in Windsor in October.
