Royal Ascot may be just over a week away but royal watchers got a small taste of the high fashion and hats that will be on show when the Queen, Princess Alexandra of Kent and Princess Haya of Jordan attended Derby Day at Epsom on Saturday.

The Queen wore a pretty pink herring-bone coat with a matching trilby shaped hat. image This outfit had been worn a number of times in the last year since it had its first appearance at the Easter Sunday service in 2008. The gold brooch with large rubies and diamonds (image) worn by the Queen had been designed by Andrew Grima in 1966 and won the Duke of Edinburgh’s Prize for Elegant Design. image The Queen in the last number of years has matched the colour of her outfit the handle and the trim on her see-through umbrella. image

Princess Alexandra wore a very typical ‘Alexandra’ style outfit – a grey coloured long jacket with pleated skirt. image The traditional wide brimmed hat adorned with netting matched the outfit perfectly and Alexandra added a touch of colour with a patterned scarf. image

Princess Haya wore a classic black coat over a white dress. image Her black hat adorned with an oversized bow had been previously seen at the 2008 Royal Ascot meeting. (image – June 2008) image (the Queen with Princess Haya)

Fashion watchers can now eagerly await Royal Ascot next week.
