Any Oz posters who might like to do some Royalty spotting - Channel 7Mate is broadcasting days 3, 4 and 5 of this year's Royal Ascot from tomorrow night. (Thursday 18th Australian time.)

Starting from after 11.00pm until 3.00am - so set the recorder and whizz through the boring bits.

I do wonder why Edward and Sophie never ride in the carriages anymore. The last time either of them rode in a carriage was 2006, yet all of the other Queen's children (and even grandchildren) ride in the carriages. I know Bagshot Park is VERY close to Ascot, but I just find it odd that they never ride anymore.

Looking forward to see Autumn and Peter in the carriages today. Autumn always looks so lovely.

Edward and Sophie probably have decided to make room in the carriages for The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh's invited guest at Royal Ascot. During Ascot week, guest are invited to Windsor Castle for a lunch, they are driven to the carriages and the procession begins. The passengers in the carriages are arranged by The Queen and royal household, so perhaps the Wessex's decided to allow the invited guest take part in the procession and they just drive over.

That is possibly why but I always wonder why they don't ride considering Sophie's Dad often takes part in the procession (normally on 19th June as it's his birthday and the Wessex anniversary) so he obviously goes to Windsor Castle beforehand. I can't imagine his son-in-law and daughter are not there with him.

Obviously it's something we will never know, but I am just always curious.

Sophie's hat is much better today. The dress is ok...

Mrs Philips's ensemble is summery. Princess Michael's look is spoilt by flimsy overwhelming feathers and enormous jewellery.

I agree - and the hat is a lot of fun. Does anyone know who Autumn uses for hats?

Why was Princess Alexandra sitting with her back to the horses in the carriage? I thought the gentlemanly thing to do was to let the ladies sit facing forward?

You're welcome royal rob.

I saw Australian trainer Gai Waterhouse on the news last night - she has several horses running at this year's Ascot.

(And has trained some of the Queen's horses before.)
