Johnny Weatherby, the Queen's representative at Ascot: "It is very sad to hear of the loss of Sir Henry Cecil this morning."

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter 1h
He has been an intrinsic part of racing and Royal Ascot for the whole of his career."

Sir Henry Cecil obituary | Sport | The Guardian

Sir Henry Cecil dies after cancer battle | Mail Online

I am a big fan of horse racing and he was a fantastic trainer.

Sir Henry Cecil
Henry Cecil will be remembered by a minute of silence and one of the races has been dedicated to him.

For now, his wife Lady Cecil is holiding the licence and will step in for him. In case of a winner emotions will go high. Cecil holds the record of Royal Ascot winners, 75.

Its tragic that he died just before the royal meeting, but in general his death had been expected for some time, he has been very ill for years.

Rats! Wrong again. The Queen's outfit by Stewart Parvin is officially described as peach, not pink. :-(

Clare Baldings commentating is sickeningly sweet!

Thank you, I missed the usual commentary and they never showed any other carriage but The Queens on the procession.

I wonder if Anne is attending today or does anyone know if she has other engagements? I love seeing images of the family in the Royal box together as it's at these events that we see the Queen at her best.

I love Eugenie's skirt, it's so wide and I love the lateral blocked stripes.

Anne wasn't in the procession though frankly she never is. Anne doesn't have any engagements today no.

First race won by Aidan O'Brien-trained Declaration of War!
Animal Kingdom, the winner of the Kentucky Derby and Dubai World Cup, who was sent off the even-money favourite to land another major prize, completely failed to handle conditions and was beaten soon after halfway.

Edward and Sophie are never in the procession either, which is rather odd. Sophie's father is in the procession more than his daughter! Sophie is at Ascot today though as there are images of her in the Royal Box. I love the colour of her blue outfit and her hat is lovely.

Just saw Princess Haya on TV, she is one stunningly pretty woman. Her hat is amazing.

Interesting that all the people in the carriages are family. This isnt usual is it? No outside guests this year staying at the castle?

There are 4 more days of Ascot left so plenty of time for others to travel. I imagine we'll see Lady Jane Cecil in a carriage ride one day this week.

Some images from GettyImages:

Beatrice and Eugenie
Queen Elizabeth and Camilla
Sophie

If The Queen's outfit is supposedly "peach" then the colour spectrum has changed recently.

I loved the pic of the Queen with Camilla. Makes me think of strawberries and cream.

I can't believe GettyImages got Lady Helen mixed up with Princess Michael of Kent....awkward.

Princess Haya and Sheikh Mohammed

My FAVORITE week of the social calendar starting with Trooping of the Colour into Royal Ascot! Here we go, kids!!!

Sophie wins for me hands down again for Day 1. Camilla and the Queen look lovely in their soft, summer colors.

They also labeled Princess Michael as Viscountess Linley.
