The York girls are not chubby. That is where this awful misnomer starts. They have nice figures. They do not need to look like pins. What they need is someone who can dress them to their best advantage.

Day 2 of the Royal Ascot ... I have no favourites. Similar to Crown Princess Letizia, Countess of Wessex loves her grey colour. This grey futuristic -themed headpiece is just hideous. It totally overpowered Countess' outfit, which had a jacket today. Any sightings of Lady Gabriella Windsor..?
Generally speaking, there is a trend of vulgarization of Royal Ascot with sleeveless dresses, plunging necklines, and absence of bras.

i like Beatrice's outfit except the hat... i'm sure the look would have been completely different if she had done her hair like Zara for example... too much hair...

Well I'm going to have to answer just to prove you wrong!

The Queen had one of hers racing on Tuesday. I don't know its name and I don't know where it finished but I'm pretty sure it didn't win. Ascot is being shown live here on cable and satellite but that race was on far too late for me.

I just checked The Guardian's race page and couldn't see HM's colours next to today's or tomorrow's runners. Saturday's aren't posted on their page yet. Purple body with gold braid, scarlet sleeves & black velvet cap with gold fringe. I don't know the name of her trainer but all this stuff should be available in the UK newspapers.

Now, on to the serious stuff

I thought HM looked spectacular today. Loved the pretty colour of her outfit and the smart hat with its yellow highlight trim. Very summery and most attractive, I thought.

I thought Camilla looked very nice, too. Appropriate and a lovely colour and a nice change from the feathery halos.

Sophie's suit was very smart, but I don't know what to say about that thing on the side of her head, so I'll say nothing.

The big hit of the day for me was Anne. I'm sure that hat was waterproof and is the sort you can scrunch up and put in your bag. It's the very thing I am looking for as a birthday present for my 93 year old mother. I do wish I could email HRH and ask where she got it ........

I will answer you Tommy. I am very sorry but Ascot for most ladies is fashion and has nothing to do with horses at all. I have no idea if the Queen has any horses running as I have been so busy looking at the hats and fashion I haven´t had time to look.
At any other time of the year I could tell you all about the horses but Ascot!!! No way.

Here are some more infos about HM and Royal Ascot:

As usual, HM will do today's trophy presentation for the Gold Cup. She has had 19 Royal Ascot winners so far.

Duke of Marmalade, will you win today? Or did you race yesterday already?

Ooh you've had better coverage of the Royal party than we had, PrincessofEurope. We got a good look at HM, and she does look very nice. She's wearing a sapphire brooch I must try and identify. I saw the huge pink hat in one of the other carriages and wondered who was wearing it.

Guessing about what Anne and Beatrice & Eugenie are wearing is giving me something to look forward to in the morning.

Interesting to note that at 4:11, Princess Anne curtsies to the Duchess of Cornwall.

Thank you very much for your coverage PrincessofEurope. Getty has got first few pictures, i have not seen the whole outfit of the Queen yet, but i can make sure that the hat was not the one worn in Turkey, i can recall that Her Majesty has worn the hat on the last day in Malta for CHOGM back in 2005. They both have the similar shape, i mean with the one in Turkey, but they are different, but the outfit must be the one in Turkey.
Really want to see a picture of what shocking hat Autumn is wearing. So other than these ladies no Gloucester or Kents?

Yes i realised my mistake i i think the whole outfit is the one from Malta as the BBC coverage showed her full lenght and there is the same bow detail at the front holding the coat together

i would image that the Gloucesters and the Kents will go tomorrow it seems to be their day

It surely is, seeing how Anne has never really favored receiving them.

Autumn Phillips looked like she was dressed for fun! She has a 1,000 watt smile that I just love.
