    Hello kate.reading@bbc.co.uk here. I am not sure that this is 1950 as Princess elizabeth was in Malta in 1950 - I think this is 1949 see here https://reuters.screenocean.com/record/310405
    Shot in 1950 and says Elizabeth last year. Also in the race in 1950 Monaveen the Queen and Princess horse fell at second jump and had to be put down so she wouldn't have been cheering.

    There is also another clip of Elizabeth cheering which is a lso labeeled 1950.
