Two men have been charged in connection with a robbery which took place at the Royal Windsor Horse Show's 'catering village'.
The attack is believed to have happened on Saturday evening when the day's events had finished at the prestigious five-day show, which was held in the private area of Home Park and visited several times by the Queen.
Two men were robbed of cash and their mobile phones. It is understood that a substantial amount of money was involved.
Karl Cashman, 22, of no fixed address and Jay Watts, 24, of Pendragon Road, Bromley were arrested in Datchet later the same evening and charged with robbery the next day.
They appeared at Slough Magistrates' Court on Monday where they were remanded to Reading Crown Court for a preliminary hearing on Monday, June 2.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
