King Charles III is auctioning off 14 racehorses left to him by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The horses are part of this week’s Tattersalls Autumn Horses in Training Sale, the world’s largest of its kind.
The auction, which is taking place all week, features approximately 1,500 horses.
Jimmy George, a spokesman, stated:
“It’s nothing out of the ordinary. Every year they would sell horses.
“The Queen had brood mares of her own, she would breed them and sell them. You can’t keep them all.”

Mr George stated that the sale did not mean the end of the royal family’s involvement with racing.
“Every year owners sell stock. His Majesty (King Charles III) is just doing what owners do,” he added.
The Queen’s passion for horses and horseback riding was shared with her mother and is thought to have begun with her first riding lesson.
Her Majesty continued to breed and race horses for over 60 years.
