Queen Elizabeth has always been passionate when it comes to horses. In fact, some of her horses even participate in the race.

In a 1992 documentary “Elizabeth R,” the Queen is watching one of the horse races unfold. She asks one of the male staff who’s in the lead. After viewing the race from the television, the monarch quickly noticed the performance of her horse.

She told the male staff that her mare couldn’t go around the corner because it was on running on the wrong leg. And in order to see the race much closer, the Queen rushes outside the viewing deck and stands beside the Queen Mother.

Her Majesty removes her eyeglasses and she starts watching the race through her binoculars. And despite her horse’s mishap, the Queen happily told her mother that her horse won. The monarch couldn’t contain her excitement when she told her mother the news.

In the same documentary, the Queen was also spotted smiling from ear to ear after learning that she won the Royal Box sweepstakes. Even though her prize is just a small amount of money, the monarch still couldn’t contain her excitement over winning.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the only video of Her Majesty running in front of thousands of people. Decades ago, she was also spotted running after Prince William after the young royal tried to run after Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s horse-drawn carriage after their royal wedding.

Immediately after reaching Prince William, the Queen grabbed her grandson by the arm. And the young Duke of Cambridge had a surprised look on his face. After all, one of the young bridesmaids also ran after the carriage.

Coincidentally, the Queen’s attire in the video of herself running after Prince William looks similar to the coat and skirt that she wore when she ran to the Queen Mother’s side to watch the horse race. These days, the monarch is unable to run because she’s already 93 years old.
