    The Cartier Queen’s Cup Tournament is played at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park, and usually takes place in June.

    But this year it has been rescheduled for the end of July due to the ongoing pandemic.

    This news was confirmed by the Daily Mail, where Richard Eden wrote, “The Cartier Queen’s Cup — the Champions League of the polo world — appeared to have fallen victim to the virus.

    “But I can disclose that the organisers’ determination to save the tournament, which is played at the Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park, has paid off.

    “Traditionally held in June, the first chukka has now been rescheduled for the end of July. ‘We’re all determined to go ahead,’ says my man with the polo stick.”

    Despite the polo tournament going ahead, it seems The Queen is not expected to attend this year.

    Her Majesty is currently at Windsor Castle for the foreseeable future and engagements have been put on hold until autumn.

    The Queen has presented the cup twice during the tournament’s history, but there’s no confirmation that she’ll be able to attend this year.

    The Cartier Queen’s Cup Tournament will see its 60th anniversary this year, so we’re sure fans everywhere will be delighted it’s planning to go ahead!
