HRH the Princess Royal watches as punters shout for their horses at Gold Cup Day, Cheltenham Racecourse on Friday.
(PIC PAUL NICHOLLS)  14 MARCH 2014

This is one of my favourite Royal pics. The Princess Royal was watching the race on screen and was particularly stony faced. A punter in front of her was getting increasingly excited that his horse was going to win, so I quickly positioned myself so to see him and the Princess Royal over his shoulder. She remained stony faced until right at the last moment when she broke into the biggest smile when the horse won. This picture was part of the set of five pictures to win me the EDF Energy South West News Photographer of the Year 2014 Award.
