Taylor Fritz's girlfriend Morgan Riddle attended her first horse race on Day 2 of the Royal Ascot on Wednesday, June 19. The day proved to be a royal affair for Riddle, as she channeled Princess Diana vibes, got an up-close look at Prince William, and encountered her personal "king," composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Riddle recently arrived in London to support Taylor Fritz during his campaign at the Queen's Club Championships in the lead-up to Wimbledon. The 26-year-old also took the opportunity to broaden her horizons by attending her first horse race at the Berkshire racecourse.

The American shared highlights of her experience on social media, showing off her chic Louis Vuitton ensemble. She donned an elegant pink fit and flare dress with a dramatic backless design, rounding out her look with a stylish white hat and matching white bag.

"Like troy bolton once said, bet on it 🐎 @louisvuitton," she captioned her Instagram post.

Riddle revealed that she drew inspiration from Princess Diana for her "vibe" for the day.

"Vibes for today," she posted on her Instagram story alongside an image of Princess Diana.

The social media influencer also captured Prince Williams' arrival in a horse-drawn carriage, alongside Queen Camilla as well as the Earl and Countess of Halifax. Having caught the Prince of Wales with his tongue sticking out, Riddle joked that it was the "funniest" video she had ever taken.

"Personally this is the funniest video I think I've ever taken," she wrote.

Furthermore, the 26-year-old relished the opportunity to get a good look at renowned British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

"Saw MY king today," she posted.

Taylor Fritz's girlfriend also debriefed her followers on her experience, gushing over the "insane" outfits and shedding light on the "strictest" dress code.

"First horse race debrief: INSANE outfits 100/10 best sporting event attire i have ever seen. We were in the royal enclosure which has the strictest dress code (long dresses, women required to wear hats and men required to wear top hats which was so cute)," she posted.

Riddle also hilariously revealed that she had opted for an unconventional betting strategy by placing bets based on the horse's names, such as "glorious kitty" and "doom," only to walk away without winning a single dollar.

"I placed my bets solely on if i liked the name of the horse• fav names of the day:glorious kitty& doom • (i did not win a single dollar)• the man on my story is THE andrew lloyd weber i need yall to culture up pls• determined to go to kentucky derby next year," she added.
