Oh, and IA, it looks to me like being at the races has done Philip some good. He looks better than he did at Trooping the Color, for sure imo.

Sophie's curtsey was amazing. Wow. So impressed. I wonder how much practice it took to get that down in heels.

Question: Why was this called "Ladies Day"?
Carole Middleton looked so happy today that I could not help but smile for her.

As to Ladies Day: The Royal Ascot web page explains that Friday and the weekend are for workers getting away, at last, from work. The mood those days is more relaxed than the first three days. The challenge of the Thursday Gold Cup, plus the last day that those who need not work have relatively to themselves, combine to make a day when ladies and designers traditionally have combined to show their best. So the fashion challenges parry and thrust on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the real fashion battle ensues on Thursday!

To me, Philip looked much better than he did over the weekend. He also seemed to be enjoying himself in most of the pictures. Hopefully he'll continue to improve once he gets to Balmoral for the summer break.

Ahh, i understand. That makes me happy then that he will be, specifically as Edward and Sophie likely wont be there today as they have other engagements.

Day 4 of Royal Ascot :) I hate the commentator Clare gets she's called Kate Williams and she's awful!

First Carriage: Her Majesty wearing purple by Angela Kelly today and travelling with Christopher Rhys Jones and Alistair Bruce.

Second Carriage: Prince Michael and Princess Michael with Sir and Lady Rake. Princess Michael wearing blue and white.

Third Carriage: Lady Caroline Warren and John Warren, Mr Harry Leggy Bourke and wife Iona.

Fourth Carriage: The Honourable Edward Tolomash and his wife, Mr Johan Rupert and his wife.

I don't know if this happens often at Ascot but everyone in today's carriages have been in them before, surely it should be different people everyday?

Kate Williams just spewing out the most obvious royal comments and interrupting the important information!

I so agree - I've switched her off. Apparently the Queen had a long relationship with her uncle!

I muted her! She exclaimed most emphatically that The Queen simply loved corgis and horses! Could you get a more obvious royal statement?

Woohoo!! A winner for the Queen! Her horse Estimate has won the Queen's Vase. She looks absolutely thrilled.

EDIT

Guess who's on the rota to present the trophy to the winner of the Queen's Vase? None other than the Duke of Edinburgh!
