ROYALS AT THE RACES: Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge made an impromptu appearance at the Cheltenham Gold Cup Day at Prestbury Park on Friday. The mother-to-be wore a pink wool Dali Yews Joseph coat with a brown Lock & Co. hat and brown Aquatalia by Marvin K. knee-high boots. The couple attended the first race on day four of the festival to cheer on participants including Monbeg Dude, a horse owned by Zara Phillips’ husband Mike Tindall. Monbeg, the Welsh National winner — who raced in its biggest competition to date — pulled up at the second-to-last fence and did not complete the race, losing the cup to Bob Worth, the 11-4 favorite.
