I think not - no photos, no tweets in evidence. Off topic - but expect them at Wimbledon!

Did CP Mary enjoy her day at Royal Ascot?

"I'm loving every minute of it" she told journalist Phillip Dampier.

He says she also told him that she'd backed "a couple" of winners, that The Queen was "gracious" and that she hoped to be back again.



And Oz TRF posters, don't forget you too can go into the Royal Enclosure at Ascot - or to a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace or Holyroodhouse in Scotland. Also to the Trooping of the Colour.

Just follow the directions on the Australian High Commission's website.

(And for free!)

I think one year someone didn't wear their badge and they were refused entry to the Royal enclosure.
Saw this late . It was actually Diana Princess of Wales, although I think it was just before she married Prince Charles. The man who refused her entry said he didn't look at faces only badges, when asked why he hadn't recognised her.

Jumpsuits are to serve as the sartorial centrepiece for one of the year's most tightly policed style showcases - Royal Ascot.

Jumpsuits are to be allowed at Royal Ascot - BT

Roll up, roll up, what colour hat will the Queen wear?

Describe Britain to a foreigner.

Well, we have statistics, predictions and odds all based on what colour hat a 91-year-old will wear.

We are expecting Her Majesty to make an appearance at about 14:00 BST.

A minute's silence will be held before the start of racing at Royal Ascot on Tuesday following the recent terror attacks and Grenfell Tower fire.The racecourse says it will also make a 100,000 donation to charities helping those who have been affected.

Racecourse chairman Johnny Weatherby said: "We have all been deeply saddened by recent tragic events around the country.

"At the beginning of this important week for racing, we wish to pay our respects to the victims and offer support to the families who have been so terribly affected."

I always feel the men in those morning suits must be melting in this heat.

Glad Willim and Kate have decided to go again this year. A good turn out of royals on the first day.

It's a green one!

Ladies and gentlemen, it's a green hat, a green hat everybody.

It looks like a lime one to my eye.

The Royal Procession is a wonderful thing, as Her Majesty and the carriages make their way down the course, and now into the Parade Ring.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are joining the Queen at Royal Ascot today.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall are also attending the first day of the famous Berkshire meet, which attracts hundreds of thousands of punters.

Following the arrival of the Queen and royal party in the parade ring, the crowds are paying their respects to those who died in the Grenfell Tower fire and the London and Manchester terror attacks with a minute's silence.

The Queen marked her official birthday on Saturday by issuing a statement acknowledging the "succession of terrible tragedies" and observed a minute's silence before the Trooping the Colour ceremony began.
