Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and Queen Elizabeth II make it a truly Royal Ascot - in pictures

Here are the best photographs from the final day of race action at Royal Ascot 2019

It was a fun fifth and final day at the Royal Ascot racing festival.

There were memorable races, such as the Diamond Jubilee Stakes, which was narrowly won by Godolphin-owned Blue Point.

There may have been no trademark flying dismount as part of his celebrations, but the smile on the face of Frankie Dettori said it all after he was crowned leading jockey at the festival.

Cleonte gave trainer Andrew Balding the victory he desired all week when coming out on top in the stamina test for the Queen Alexandra Stakes.

And Cape Byron looked like a Group horse masquerading as a handicapper as he justified his short price to run out a comfortable winner of the Wokingham Stakes.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms were in attendance.
