Britain's Prince Andrew escorted a new female companion to Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot on Thursday. The prince was accompanied by socialite Goga Ashkenazi for the second day of the prestigious Berkshire horseracing event.
Britain's Daily Express newspaper reports Andrew and Goga spent the entire afternoon together in the Royal Box.
The pair reportedly chatted animatedly for hours and shared furtive glances before Andrew introduced her to his mother, Queen Elizabeth, who smiled broadly as they met.
The queen wore a cream hat and coat for her entry into the parade ring, as the royals braved gusting winds and heavy showers.
Prince Andrew, 47, is said to enjoy his bachelor status, but his day out with Goga may have brought back memories of his romance with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, which began during Royal Ascot week in 1985.
The queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips was also present at the event and appeared to be having a great time with her rugby-playing boyfriend Mike Tindall.
Prince Andrew and Sarah were married for 10 years, and have two children together, Princess Beatrice, 18 and Princess Eugenie, 17. They divorced in 1996 but remain firm friends.
