Every little helps.

The Queen just won a Tesco gift card on the horses and she could not look happier about it.

The British monarch won the voucher after her horse, Barber's Shop, won the Tattersalls & RoR Thoroughbred Ridden Show during the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The annual show is held in the grounds of the Queen's most queenly residence, Windsor Castle.

Like any self-respecting 90-year-old would, she looked delighted at her supermarket windfall.

The key to free Hoi Sin Duck wraps and Dino wine – red, white AND rosé, is in her hands.

Whether or not the Queen has ever, or will ever, visit a Tesco store, however, remains unclear.

A spokesperson for Tesco was not able to tell us how much was on the voucher, but they did say that the supermarket wished to say a "huge congratulations" to the Queen.

"We hope this win provides a little help with the weekly royal shop," the spokesperson added.
