The world's most prestigious racing festival, Royal Ascot, gets underway on Tuesday. The Royal meeting is known for its exhilarating sporting competition set against a backdrop of sartorial elegance and summer socialising. 8 Group 1 races and 19 Group races are scheduled across five days.

Contenders from Australia, the USA and Europe will take on the best horses in Britain, with owners from over 20 countries represented in the entries. Last year's edition saw owners from 13 different countries visit the winner's enclosure.
