Begum Om Habibeh at Royal Ascot

Begum om Habibeh Aga Khan

Royal Ascot is Britain’s most valuable race meeting, attracting many of the world’s finest racehorses to compete for more than £7.3m in prize money. Each year the meeting is broadcast to audiences around the globe, yet to experience it in person is something altogether more special.

Her Highness The Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan III appears poignant in 1958 as she attends the first Royal Ascot since the death of her late husband in 1957. Their presence at Royal Ascot was legendary, as was their love of horses, and for eachother.
