Tuesday 12 January 1993
11 January: By command of The Queen, the Viscount Goschen (Lord-in-Waiting) this morning called upon the Governor-General of Antigua and Barbuda and Lady Jacobs at Dolphin Square, London SW1, and, on behalf of Her Majesty, welcomed Their Excellencies on their arrival in this country.
Her Majesty's representative at Ascot wishes to announce that there will again be a limited number of Royal Enclosure vouchers for the Royal meeting available for New Applicants for Friday 18 June only.
New applicants wishing to apply for these vouchers should write to Her Majesty's Representative, The Ascot Office, St James's Palace, London SW1A 1BP, before 31 March, stating the full names of those members of their family who require vouchers together with their ages if between 16 and 25 years.
Sponsorship forms will then be sent which should be signed by a sponsor, who has been present in the Royal Enclosure for at least eight years. A ballot will be held and all new applicants will be notified of the result by mid May.
Those applicants who were unsuccessful in previous ballots will again be required to submit their applications in writing, and will be subject to the 1993 ballot, but the signature of a sponsor will not be necessary.
Previous holders of Royal Enclosure vouchers should apply in writing in the usual way before the end of April, stating their full names and ages if between 16 and 25 years. In addition they may also apply for their children aged between 16 and 25 years, who have not been granted Royal Enclosure vouchers previously. They will require a sponsor who has been present in the Royal Enclosure for eight years. Vouchers, if granted, will be valid for the Friday only of the Royal Meeting and should be applied for before 31 March.
