The royals of both Dubai and the UK have been spotted brushing shoulders at the Royal Ascot horse race. 

Dubai's Ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid and his son Crown Prince Hamdan, have already been winning big at Britain's most valuable horse racing event, which started Tuesday and continues through Saturday.

The Godolphin team, owned by the Dubai royals, won two races on the opening day. 

The UK's Prince Charles gave Dubai's Prince Hamdan a trophy

The crown prince accepted the prize after Godolphin's Barney Roy gained a first G1 success in the St James’s Palace Stakes.

Of course, this isn't the first time Dubai's royals and the UK's royals spend time together

Sheikh Mohammed and Prince Hamdan are regularly in the UK for horse racing events.

Earlier in June, they were spotted with Queen Elizabeth II

Back in May as well
