Mr Warren took over the role from his father-in-law Henry Herbert, 7th Earl of Carnarvon, on his death in 2001. 

He had held the post since 1969. Horses were seen being led around Commodore yard this weekend, which is where the process of breaking in yearlings takes place.

The Queen takes a particular interest in bloodstock breeding and has been rewarded with considerable success on the racecourse. 

The Queen has owned hundreds of race horses through the years and has claimed more than 1600 race wins – a figure that’s still growing. Her Majesty may well be in Sandringham on horse business. 

As well as thoroughbreds, Elizabeth also breeds Shetland ponies at Balmoral in Scotland and Fell ponies at Hampton Court. In 2007 she opened a full-time Highland pony stud at Balmoral to enhance and preserve the breed.

Earlier this month the Queen attended the Royal Windsor Horse Show, which is now in its 77th year and attracts well-heeled visitors from all over the world.  

Her Mahjesty returned from a Royal Week in Scotland to attend the horse show, which is thought to be one of her favourite equestrian events of the year, after joining her daughter Princess Anne, 70, at the University of Edinburgh.

Wood Farm, located on a secluded part of the Sandringham estate that looks out over the sea, is where the Queen went with Prince Philip and their children to relax for more than 50 years.

The Duke of Edinburgh spent much of his time at Wood Farm after retiring from public duties in August 2017. 

The Queen wore a pair of sunglasses to shield her eyes from the glare on one of the warmest weekends of the year
