Monaco is one of the most prestigious events on the F1 calendar, so it's no surprise to see part of the British Royal Family there. Princess Beatrice, Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall were all spotted in the Principality. 

Sky Sports F1's Natalie Pinkham posted on Instagram her pictures from the Monaco Grand Prix, which included one of her with Princess Beatrice, Zara Tindall and Mike Tindall all on a luxury private yacht. The post also included a photo of Pinkham and Zara Tindall meeting American film star Matt Damon, who starred as Carroll Shelby in Ford vs Ferrari

It's not the first time that Princess Beatrice has attended an F1 race. Along with Princess Eugenie at the Bahrain Grand Prix back in 2022, where they were seen in conversation with Sir Jackie Stewart

Have British royals attended Formula 1 races before? 

It's not the first time we have seen a member of the British royal family at a Formula 1 race before. Prince Harry attended the US Grand Prix last year at COTA, and Princess Eugenie was seen in Abu Dhabi. The late Queen Elizabeth II attended the first World Championship Grand Prix in 1950.

Now King Charles knighted Lewis Hamilton in 2021 and had also met the seven-time world champion back in 1997 when Hamilton was karting. 

Which other celebrities were in Monaco? 

Kylian Mbappe, Virgil van Dijk, Mason Mount, and Ben Chilwell were just some of the other celebrities attending the Monaco Grand Prix, with singer Becky G and Peggy Gou also in attendance.
