Fakenham Racecourse statement on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II


The directors, staff and friends of Fakenham Racecourse extend their sincere condolences to His Majesty The King, other members of the Royal Family and all those affected by the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Fakenham Racecourse is immensely proud of its royal heritage, and it was a huge honour that The Queen became Patron of Fakenham Racecourse within days of acceding to the throne in 1952. After almost 50 years as Patron, Her Majesty handed over the reins to The Prince of Wales on 1st January 2000. Fakenham is very privileged to have His Majesty The King as Patron. Our thoughts remain with His Majesty The King and all members of the Royal Family during this period of national mourning.
