The love of horses and racing is a long standing tradition on both sides of the pond, as the Atlantic Ocean is often called when England and her former colonies, our United States, are the subjects.
That love of horse racing, particularly among the Royals, was brought home to Harford County Friday evening. That's when more than 80 people were treated to a talk from British author Hugo Vickers, the biographer of the Royal Family, about the current monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, and her relatives' love of horse racing.
"Horses play a large part in the life of our Royal Family," Vickers said. "On ceremonial occasions they come out in force."
