The Royal Borough's new mayor for 2019 to 2020 will be Cllr Sayonara Luxton - her second time fulfilling the role as 'first citizen'.

Cllr Luxton was mayor between 2016 and 2017, earning a reputation for glamour for the wide range of outfits she wore at the many functions she attended.

She used her position to raise thousands of pounds for her chosen charity the Household Cavalry Foundation.

Last time she was chosen as Mayor Cllr Luxton joked about her small stature being unsuited for the robes she would have to wear - but expressed delight at being the first mayor from the Ascot end of the borough in 16 years.

This week she joked: "I guess I'm going to have to buy a whole new wardrobe now."

Cllr Luxton was born in Goa and lived there for 21 years before moving to Dubai and later relocating to the UK in 1993.

She represents the Sunningdale and Cheapside ward and as before will be accompanied by her husband Ian on official engagements.

She has four daughters, two of whom occasionally accompanied her on mayoral engagements last time round. But that will not be happening this time - one daughter is now a busy lawyer and the other is a diplomat in America.

Cllr Luxton will formally take the chain of office from current mayor Paul Lion at the official mayor making ceremony being held at the Guildhall in Windsor on Tuesday.

Taking over as deputy mayor from Cllr Colin Rayner will be Cllr Gary Muir, who represents the Datchet, Horton and Wraysbury ward.
