Now, this was certainly a better day for Royal ladies!

Her Majesty looked splendid; I love her hat and the colour certainly suits her.
Camilla looked beautiful as well; another Royal, who looks marvellous in pink. Her hat was very interesting and wouldn't look out of place at the Chelsea Flower Show. The only thing I didn't like about her outfit were her gloves; they looked not unlike the M&S ones I have.
I almost miss Princess Anne's yesterday's outfit; at least it was interesting. This one looks just plain and cheap.
Both Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Gloucester looked very elegant - true Royals from hat to shoes.
Lady Helen Taylor looked radiant, although she could have chosen a more interesting piece.
Princess Haya looked quite nice, much better than yesterday
It was nice to see Tim Taylor, I haven't seen him for quite a while.

Great to see Lady Helen in the carriage as it must be one of the first time it had happened

Camilla again in Vivenne Westwood looked much better

The Queen's outfit by Stuart Parvin and hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan was a repeat from her Turkery trip May 2008

Sophie's dad was in the 4th carriage today again

Royal Ascot 2009 - Day 2 - Pictures - Zimbio

Lady Helen Windsor looks fabulous. HOnestly the Kent family really know how to get it right don't they - every single one of them is fabulous. Princess Marina got things off to a very good start back in the day I think!

Another vintage outfit from the closet. Looks like an hostess from the "Love Boat".

Epitome of class and elegance as usual. Pcss Alexandra reminds me so much her regal mother pcess Marina.

Lady Helen T

So glad to see her. Beautiful and classy. I'm not a big fan of the UFO Shape of the hat but it suits her.

I must agree! Lovely to see Lady Helen in the carriage and I think it's lovely Mr. Rhys-Jones is getting the "royal" treatment!

Yes, I think since Prince George and Princess Marina they always were the glamour-part of the royal family... I hope, The Michael-Kents (hopefully their children too) and Princess Alexandra will be seen again this week.

Love what Helen is wearing the elegance of the outfit and her accessories is perfect. Sophi looks gorgeous in blue and her bag from her engagement days lovely outfit.

There's a funny picture of Camilla in this gallery with her hand over her mouth - I wonder what she suddenly realised she'd forgotten to do? -curtsey to the Queen perhaps

I see that Princess Anne managed to find another ugly hat (blue and yellow) to complement her ensemble on Day 2.

Camilla's outfit was better today, sort of floaty and filmy. I liked the hat but could have done without the twisty bits.

And don't you think Lady Helen's hat was old-fashioned? Diana wore something similar back about 1985...

And the Queen looked smashing!! I really love her hat. (Isn't it a shame that your 80-something mother can pull together a better look than you?)

It looks like Sophie's main fashion accessory again today was her dad!

I can't say I particularly like Sophie''s outfit; it's too conservative and dull, in my opinion.

As expected, Lady Helen Taylor's outfit is the acme of perfection. Her outfit reminds of glamourous 1930s or 1940s. Indeed, an impeccable taste in fashion runs in the Kent family.
Countess of Wessex looked amazing in a blue ensemble. Blue and its different hue are her colour. A light blue colour organically combined with a dark blue one. The wide brimmed hat adorned with flowers nicely completed the whole look.

As a side note ... Some ladies attending Ascot has a lot in common with ladies, who attended Aintree. It is amazing that no body criticises plunging necklines at Ascot.

Sophie hasnt riden in an Ascott carriage procession since 2006 so i doubt she will this year as she normally only goes two days and she has been yesterday and today

Anne will possibly be in it tomorrow

Although i like Lady Helen's outfit i saw a picture of the back and it had a low cowl neckline at the back which i didnt like

Thank goodness for the Kent ladies!

HM, the Duchess of Cornwall, Lady Helen, Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Gloucester look great.

Oh Anne! What to do what to do! But you know fashion has never been her game...but she does great work for the Firm so I am gong to continue to give her a pass. Not sure about Sophie's look.

It was great to see Lady Helen in the carriage ride. It would be great to see Lady Rose or Lady Davinia at this as well but they are much more private so I will continue to enjoy my Trooping experiences.
