Queen Visits Irish Horsebreeding

Horse Lover Queen Elizabeth
The Queen has been shown around the Irish National Stud horsebreeding centre on the third day of her historic visit to the Republic of Ireland.

In a speech at Dublin Castle on Wednesday, she offered her “sincere thoughts and deep sympathy” to victims of Ireland and the UK’s troubled past.

She went on to praise the “lasting rapport” now between the countries.

An apology had not been expected, the BBC’s Nicholas Witchell said, but the Queen came “pretty close”.

BBC Ireland correspondent Mark Simpson said that having reached “half-time” in the Queen’s four-day trip, there was now “no more politics – just horses and showbiz today”.

The Queen is due to attend a variety show at Dublin’s National Convention Centre on Thursday evening.
