It is nice that European royals are in attendance. Sophie's ensemble is much better today: a well-tailored dress and a whimsical hat. I find Crown Princess Mary's outfit awkward. She has much more elegant outfits in her wardrobe.

Like Prince Andrew, Prince Edward looked great.

I think the Queen looked especially nice today. I love her in soft pastels and her hat was a real treat, very pretty.

Here is a gallery of Mary at Ascot: FLOT GALLERI: Fantastiske billeder af kronprinsesse Mary fra Royal Ascot | BILLED-BLADET

Oh yeah, Frederik is there too...

This article comes with a very nice pic of M&F and Countess Sophie: http://www.billedbladet.dk/kongelige...cot-ved-london

Not being familiar with Ascot what is the patch the ladies are wearing on their shoulders?

What a great surprise to see Frederik and Mary attend.
They both look like they had a great time. And seem to get along great with Edward and Sophiepl

Wentworth Beaumont is Viscount Annadale. He and his wife are friends of William and Kate and were guests at their wedding. His sister Lucy married Viscount somebody or other just before George was born and Pippa was a guest at the wedding, one of those innumerable weddings the Daily Fail used to film her attending. The Annadales have homes in Northumberland and Yorkshire and are seriously wealthy.

And ding-aling-aling, the inevitable comparison between Mary and Kate by Daily Mail: They could be sisters! Princess Mary of Denmark and Duchess of Cambridge look strikingly similar as they enjoy a catch up at Royal Ascot | Daily Mail Online

But the pics are good.

It's effectively a named badge to allow entry to the Royal enclosure. Most people when buying tickets will get a tag to attach to their bags/button holes to show where they are allowed to go at Ascot.

I think one year someone didn't wear their badge and they were refused entry to the Royal enclosure.

They are two beautiful future Queen's. I wish they could get together more often.

At this point, the couples have known each for at least ten years and met at various social events (i.e. weddings). When Edward attended his Nikolai of Denmark's (his godson) confirmation....both he and Sophie stayed with Fred and Mary.

So, yes they are closer at this point.

Frederik and Mary can be close to both the Wessex's and Cambridge's. It's all down to them getting together more often and getting to know each other better. It also help if the Cambridge's are the ones sent to foreign royal social events.

It's very good to see Frederik and Mary at Royal Ascot.

Normally like what Kate wears but she would not have looked out of place going to her own wedding in this outfit and do all of her clothes now have to cost a fortune.

Thanks, Lumutqueen.

And agree with you, Dman. It would be nice to see M&F and W&K more often - and indeed with other royals in their age group. I mean, when you are in your thirties and have have children an age difference of fifteen years doesn't matter that much and even less the older you get.

I also believe it would beneficial for W&K to visit and exchange views with other royals on a personal level, despite the different roles the BRF has from Continental royals. Especially because W&K seem to wish to do things markedly differently than the older BRF members and also because (and with all due respect to Prince Charles) they are seen as the de facto CP-couple of Britain, certainly abroad!
Prince Charles is more seen as an interim figure. - And I must emphasize that I'm not talking about his qualities or the order of succession, I'm merely referring to the general view among people. A view I've heard expressed many times in various ways here in DK.

Ah ok I recognize the name Annadale.


Thanks!

Since (I think) CP Mary outranks Kate (right?)...were there any curtseys?

Why point out the cost of Kate's outfit when it is no more than the cost of what the other women ( and men) are wearing. The Ascot is a fancy event and the attendees dress to the nines. Unfair to just comment on Kate when she is no different than the rest. Or is this just a comment to pick apart Kate for the sake of unfairly criticizing her.

What are you talking about? She's known for buying sale and discount clothing....of course she has some more expensive items too but she also re-wears many of them.
