Princess Anne started her two-day visit to Paris by visiting Longchamp Racecourse to watch the 100th Prix de L’Arc de Triomphe, Europe’s richest horse race. After the race, Princess Anne presented the trophy to the winner in front of an audience of millions.
Torquator Tasso was ridden by Rene Piechulek and was trained by Marcel Weiss.
The winner picked up a prize money of 2,857,000 euros.
Torquator Tasso won at odds of 80/1 – a victory described as one of the biggest shocks in the history of horse racing.
The Princess Royal’s trip is connected to sport.
She has been a member of the International Olympic Committee for many years and she is going to meet representatives of the Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics.
The trip to Paris is the first time the Princess has travelled abroad in 2021.
In 2019 the Princess Royal was involved in nearly 500 engagements.
She packs four or five engagements in a single day into her itinerary, which sometimes makes it hard for her team members.
She told Vanity Fair in an interview she has no intention of retiring, she said: “I don’t think retirement is quite the same [for me].
“Most people would say we’re very lucky not to be in that situation because you wouldn’t want to just stop.
“It is, to a large extent, the choice of the organisations you’re involved with and whether they feel you’re still relevant.”
Princess Anne is the second child and only daughter of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
