Queen Goes Nuts (For Her) As Horse Wins Gold Cup

Brilliant footage as excited Queen allows a rare public display of emotion

OK so we have now got the video of the Queen's reaction to her horse wining one of the biggest races of the year, the Gold Cup, earlier today.

It's definitely the happiest I have ever seen the Queen!

Look at that royal grin!

This footage was played on the big screen at Ascot, much to the delight of the crowd.

The Queen's horse, Estimate, won the Royal Ascot's Gold Cup event on Thursday, the first time the race was won by a reigning monarch.
