In a clip shared on ITV Racing on Instagram, the head of the British Royal family was seen laughing hard as Mike Tindall performed a hat trick.
While the Royals were catching up on each other near the race course, the former Rugby player gained the Queen’s attention when he removed his hat, reached into it, and brought out a miniature hat resembling the one he wore, before wearing it back.
The Queen wasn’t the only one who found the act hilarious as Princess Beatrice and Sophie, Countess of Wessex also chuckled.
The Royal Ascot is one of Britain’s famous racecourses that occurs annually in June. Each day of the race is kicked off by a procession that includes the Queen and other members of the family.

This year, it seemed the Queen and another royal were twinning as regards the color of their outfit. While it is unusual for anyone to wear a similar color to the Queen, as she usually stands out, the Duchess of Cambridge was an exemption as she rocked a pastel blue Ellie Saab dress and matching Philip Treacy Hats.
Nevertheless, no one stole the show like the aged royal who looked simple and elegant in the same color of suit over a floral dress.

Even though the British Monarch is nonagenarian, she hasn’t slowed down when it comes to carrying out her duties. She still attends numerous events and is photographed looking active all the time.
