Princess Kate quickly laughed off a fall by a fellow royal at today’s Royal Ascot.

Kate, 35, was seated in a carriage alongside Prince William when Sophie, the countess of Wessex, stepped into the carriage and lost her balance, falling right into Kate’s hands.

Kate’s mouth opened in shock as she braced for Sophie, the wife of Prince Edward. Both women were then seen laughing off the incident, while William and Edward smiled in the background.

The queen, dressed in a bright green outfit and hat, led race attendees in observing a moment of silence for the victims of the Manchester and London terror attacks as well as the Grenfell Tower fire.

Queen Elizabeth, 91, went for a horseback ride herself on Monday in record-breaking heat on the grounds of Windsor Castle, near the Thames. She was photographed wearing a scarf over her head as she rode her pony alongside Head Groom Terry Pendry.
