Well, I say, you have been busy. My husband and I went to Ascot each year from 1969 to 1975 and always enjoyed it. I used to rent my hat each year. We also enjoyed Cowes and visiting historic sites on the island. He always went to Wimbledon and Lords, too, but I stayed home (not polite to sleep in public!).

Very interesting because Princess Diana either didn't like horses!
I wonder how long Wills has to stay in the shower after a horsey day before he can give Kate a kiss and a hug?

Women will have to wear hats, not fascinators, as part of a tightening of the dress code in Royal Ascot's Royal Enclosure this summer.

Under the rules, racegoers will also have to wear skirts or dresses of "modest length" falling just above the knee or longer.

For men, a waistcoat and tie will be compulsory in the enclosure and cravats will not be allowed.

Organisers said the decision was part of a move to restore formality.

Now that's appropriate attire for Ascot, at least in my understanding.
A bit like a modern take on My Fair Lady era Ascot outfits.

You are right. The Ascot is about being feminine and elegant. At the same time, it is nice to see Japanese ladies wearing stunning kimonos.

Day One: HM The Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, The Duchess of Cornwall and Princess Eugenie attending today with the carriage procession starting at 2pm.

Princess Beatrice is currently at Harewood House as she's watched the Olympic Torch arrive in Yorkshire (as the daughter of The Duke of York)

- The most amusing picture so far the woman in this picture has a basket of pashmina's to give ladies who are dressed incorrectly. I love her outfit though.

FYI, for those of us in the U.S. with digital cable, check if you get HRTV since they have coverage of the racing from Ascot. I'm not sure how much you'll actually see of the Queen, but it's worth a shot.

Princess Anne is in attendance but she's not in the procession she just arrived through the public entrance.

Her Majesty wearing light blue, Camilla in cream or beige perhaps (Camilla is accompanied by her godson Lord James Irwin and his wife, they are chatting so enthusiastically)

Eugenie is in turquoise and black accompanied by The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

Royal Ascot fashion police on patrol as course opens for first day of racing (have ladies stuck to dress | Mail Online

That birdcage is horrific!

Frankel obviously wins the Queen Anne Stakes! Lovely thing to watch but you could hardly call it a race.
The Queen has a runner tomorrow in The Prince of Wales stakes (named after Charles).

Just love that The Princess Royal isn't in the royal box but she's down in the enclosure and congratulate Henry Cecil on his 74th win at Ascot.

There are some pics available on Getty already. Her Majesty a new beautiful light blue hat, in the carriage with her dashing Prince Philip. The Duchess of Cornwall in the exact outfit & hat that she wore on the Thames Pageant.

I thought that hat looked familiar.

Speaking of the Duchess, she just presented the trophy to the winning connections of the King's Stand Stakes. The race commentators from the TVG studios in L.A. questioned whether this was really a royal presenter. Their reasoning is that since Camilla is "just a duchess" she isn't really royal.

The Countess of Wessex has two engagements in Cheshire today that would most likely explain why she's not there. I would think attending Royal Ascot and watching these stunning house would be a lovely way to spend their anniversary.

Thanks for the info. Based on that, Edward will not be with her.
