I NEVER thought I would use this word with Princess Anne...but she looked absolutely CHIC! I LOVED her outfit...the hat..the color... She FINALLY got it right.

As for Beatrice and Eugenie... they can take some lessons from Zara. I know they are young..and..."healthy" girls...but my goodness..get some outfits that fit right, match, and have taste!

There...I said it!!!

I'm all for Eugenie having bright bold young colours, but oh dear she could do with some deportment lessons. Rounded shoulders in one so young are not good...A little elegant poise would do wonders for her...

Princess. Anne. Looked. Fabulous.

There've I've typed it. I need to sit down now, for I am in shock!

The Queen - what's that about. Urgh.

Liked Bea's hat - but Euge's - oh dear oh dear. THe whole outfit is a bit of a mess. Could this two not perhaps wander into a milliners and buy something with *gasp* a BRIM!

Princess Michael - well, she works this picture hat look a lot but it works for her...

I cannot believe Anne is the winner, does this merit some kind of public holiday amongst our numbers?!

You might be right. But Anne was beautiful today. Elegant, chic and very very stylish.

Rod and Penny lead the field at Royal Ascot... but isn't that a bit of a boring hat on Ladies' Day Mrs Stewart? | Mail Online

Doesn't Anne wore similar hats to that worn by Soiphie years ago?
Say what you want but I like Anne's hats this year.
Btw. isn't it similar to Maxima's hat from Alexia's baptism?
Didn't Princess Michael wore it before or something similar?

The Princess and the pea? Eugenie arrives for Ladies Day at Royal Ascot wearing a hat that looks suspiciously like frozen veg...

Princess Eugenie really entered the spirit of Ladies' Day at Royal Ascot today as she arrived for the third day of racing wearing what looked suspiciously like a giant garden pea perched on the front of her head.

I just had one of the biggest shocks of my life: Princess Anne looks absolutely wonderful!
The Queen looked lovely as well, although I preferred her outfits from the first and second days.
Princess Michael looked characteristically elegant but I am not too fond of the puffy sleeves.
Sophie looked like the perched an over-sized candy on her hat, but the effect was far from sweet.I just don't think the hat, the dress and the suit matched each other at all. And I hope the square thing she is holding isn't her bag.

As for Beatrice and Eugenie, let's just say there was no shock there; both ensembles, every last detail of them, were downright ugly. Such a shame, because both girls can be very pretty with just a little effort.

The top of Princess Michaels outfit and the hat are definitely recycled by her. I've seen this hat maybe two times before. But I ment the skirt. If it is one, then its a new one

Sophie looks stupid today - it looks like she stuck a heart shaped chocolate box onto of her head - she looked fab yesterday, pretty decent on tuesday and then she goes and spoils it all by wearing a mismatched outfit today

I agree with you. The hat severely undermined the whole look. A white creme colour became Countess of Wessex perfectly. However, the jacket is over-embellished. Lace on sleeves is all right, lace on a waistline looks extra to me. I like a pattern on the dress though.

I like Sophie's suit as well. It's the hat and the bag that are strange.

The hat is whimsical. While I laud Countess of Wessex for trying something edgy, I still have to admit that the "a heart shaped chocolate box" (as aptly described by PrincessofEurope) hat does not flatter her at all.
I wonder how people, who ride in the carriages, are chosen or invited.

I'm sorry, I've mistaken the day...Sophie was stunning with her light blue dress yesterday or the day before, but the last dress she wore...terrible.
I really like the dress worn by Princess Michael, except for the sleeves.
And now I agree, Princess Anne was the best dressed.

Ah - hadn't spotted Sophie (for God's sake woman, get in the carriages!) I must be in a minority of 1, for I like her choc box hat. I do wish she'd quit this boxy jacket and floaty patterned skirt thing though... it was worn unsuccessfully by QEII and Anne on Monday. Sophie - stop it!

Now I have seen Anne full length I love it all the more. Well done - but let's not get complacent, I am sure she is busy dusting off a 1978 horror right now to wear tomorrow...
