The Ascot Landau carriage is one of five Ascot Landaus purchased during the reign of Queen Victoria. Usually kept at Windsor Castle, the carriages are used to transport members of the Royal Family on official occasions, which have included Her Majesty The Queen's Coronation visit to Edinburgh in 1953, the Investiture of The Prince of Wales at Caernarfon Castle in 1969, and a number of State Visits.

Ascot Landau carriages are also used each year for The Queen's procession up the course at the Royal Ascot Race, and are regularly used to transport new Commonwealth High Commissioners when they are received by The Queen for an Audience at Buckingham Palace.
