Tom Cruise surprised revellers at a horse racing event in England when he showed up on Ladies' Day.

The Mission: Impossible star donned a grey suit, blue tie and sunglasses to visit the famous Glorious Goodwood racecourse near Chichester, England on Thursday (31Jul14).

He posed with guests and mingled with royalty, including Queen Elizabeth Ii's granddaughter Zara Phillips.

Cruise received a special welcome to the races by the British Army's Yorkshire Regiment band, which played the theme tune to his famous action movie. He is currently filming the fifth instalment of the franchise in London.

Cruise even presented the Magnolia Cup trophy to English supermodel Edie Campbell, who rode the winning horse in the ladies' charity race.
