Duke and Duchess of Sussex join the Queen at Royal Ascot

  
The Duchess of Sussex has made her debut at Royal Ascot, joining the Queen for her favourite event of the season as she channeled the monochrome style of My Fair Lady. The Duchess, in a white and black hat and dress, accompanied her husband in an Ascot carriage for her first outing to the Royal Enclosure, before presenting a trophy to race winner Frankie Dettori. While she appeared to have taken style inspiration from the outfits of Audrey Hepburn's Eliza Doolittle, she suffered no similar etiquette mishaps, mingling with seasoned race-goers and engaged in cheerful conversation with the Queen. The Queen, in bright yellow, led her family in the opening day of Royal Ascot, joined by the Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Royal and Duke of York with his daughters. The Duke of Cambridge was elsewhere, undertaking engagements focusing on male mental health and technological innovation in Liverpool, while the Duchess remained out of sight with her three children. Royal Ascot 2018, in pictures The Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived in the third carriage of the tradition Royal procession, along with the Earl and Countess of Wessex. They would have had much to talk about, as the newlywed Sussexes celebrated the "one month anniversary" of their wedding and the Wessexes marked 19 years to the day since their own Windsor Castle nuptials. The Queen wearing yellow for the first day of Royal Ascot In an unmistakable sign of welcome into the Royal family, the Duke and Duchess were tasked with presenting the trophy for the St James's Palace Stakes, won by Favourite Without Parole ridden by Frankie Dettori and trained by John Gosden. The Duchess of Sussex wore an embellished white shirt dress from Givenchy, the fashion house that designed her wedding gown, with a striking hat by Royal favourite Philip Treacy. How the Royal Family have dressed for the races over the years Fitting in with the strict dress code of the Royal Enclosure, the Duchess' colour scheme was reminiscent of the 1964 My Fair Lady film, in which a beautiful cockney flower seller mingles with high society at Ascot before being unmasked by her coarse shouts of encouragement at the horses.

United States withdraws from UN human rights council as criticism mounts over border policy

  
The United States has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, which it has accused of anti-Israel bias. Any suspension or withdrawal would be the latest US rejection of multilateral engagement after it pulled out of the Paris climate agreement and the Iran nuclear deal.  Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, and Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, made the announcement on Tuesday, with Mrs Haley saying the Geneva-based organisation was "not worthy of its name". Mrs Haley described the council as a "protector of human rights abusers and cesspool of political bias" and accused the body of "politicising and scapegoating countries with positive human rights records." She said the decision had not been taken lightly, and added: "We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organisation that makes a mockery of human rights." Nikki Haley, pictured beside Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state, announcing US withdrawal from the UN human rights council, on Tuesday in Washington DC Credit: AFP She said the US would have stayed if the changes they sought had been implemented, and said she did not rule out rejoining at a later date. Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said the US decision was "regrettable". "We've made no secret of the fact that the UK wants to see reform of the human rights council, but we are committed to working to strengthen the council from within," he said. "Britain's support for the human rights council remains steadfast. It is the best tool the international community has to address impunity in an imperfect world and to advance many of our international goals. "That's why we will continue to support and champion it." Mrs Haley announced last year that Washington was reviewing its membership of the 47-country body. The US is halfway through a three-year term and its departure marks the first time that a sitting member would volunteer to step aside. Libya was suspended in 2011 after a government crackdown on unarmed protesters.   Under President George W. Bush the US refused to join the Geneva-based forum when it was created in 2006, but did so after President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Established to promote human rights worldwide the council has passed more than 70 resolutions critical of Israel, 10 times as often as it has criticised Iran. The US move came as Donald Trump achieved his highest job rating since the first week of his presidency. For the first time since January 2017 he recorded an approval figure of 45 per cent in a weekly Gallup poll. It meant Mr Trump's popularity was exactly the same as Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan at the same stage of their presidencies, while Barack Obama was at 46 per cent. The poll was conducted over the course of last week and reflected a strengthening economy, falling unemployment, and the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore. It was unclear how much the poll had been affected by a growing furore over a new "zero tolerance" policy of separating illegal immigrant parents from their children at the Mexican border. A separate Quinnipiac poll showed 66 per cent of Americans oppose the controversial policy, although 55 Per cent of Republicans support it. Donald Trump has faced fierce criticism for the so-called "zero-tolerance" policy that forcibly removes children from their parents Credit: AP Photo/Evan Vucci The policy means all illegal immigrants are now detained and prosecuted, and their children are removed and held in separate detention centres. The  UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein criticised the policy on Monday, calling it "unconscionable." Mrs Haley hit back on Tuesday, attacking the council for its own "hypocrisy".  The council's current membership includes 14 countries that are ranked as "not free" by Freedom House: Afghanistan, Angola, Burundi, China, Cuba, Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iraq, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezu
