THE King has not been prevented by the untoward event at Ascot from visiting Egham ; although, from the unfavourable state of the weather on Tuesday, his presence there was scarcely looked for. Im- mediately after one o'clock, the clouds began to gather, and the Royal party arrived in the midst of a very heavy fall of rain, which continued during a great part of the afternoon. The cortege, consisting of four carriages and four, was met at Long Mead by Mr. Boulding, and conducted up the straight mile to the Royal Stand. In the first carriage were the King and Queen, the Duke of Sussex, and the Princess Augusta ; in the others, were the Duke of Gloucester Prince George of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Errol; Duke of Richmond, Earl of Albemarle and Lady Westmeath, and others of their Majesties' attendants. The Royal party was joined, after the first race, by the Duke of Cumberland. The prena- rations for the reception of their Majesties were extensive. In addi- tion to the temporary stand erected for the racing, the splendid tents captured from Tippoo Sultan were brought from Woolwich, and pitched behind the stand for their accommodation during the intervals. These tents, which have not been used for twenty-five years, were exceedingly admired, and fully answered all the purposes intended. The ground was very heavy; and the attendance much less numerous than it would have been expected, had the weather been better. The King and Queen and party were received with loud cheering on their arrival and departure. •
