First Ladies Day, now Luvvies Day

The actor Martin Clunes may have made his name as one of the Men Behaving Badly, but he was on his best behaviour yesterday as he arrived for the fourth day of Royal Ascot.

Seated beside Lt-Col Charles Richards in one of the Royal carriages, he waved to the crowd as to the manor born. Also in the Royal procession was Andrew Lloyd-Webber, a keen breeder, whose horse Dar Re Mi won the Dubai Sheema Classic in March.
