I thought you'd like to see them.

I love seeing these personal photos - thank you wyevale.

Photos from posters are somehow more relatable.

You can also see the Royals walking about and into the royal box. Later in the day after the last race I saw the Queen leaving from the main entrance in her car.

It was a nice day and not as busy as Ladies Day or later in the week. Definitely recommend it. You can see how relaxed the Queen is at these events.

Sorry these pictures aren’t great I have better quality ones on a proper camera!

Wonderful to have these insights PrincessofEuope - thank you for sharing, really appreciate these interesting details. Love the personal insights of posters.

Yes, a good clue if the professionals are setting up behind you for photos - must be a good spot.

Thanks again, and not doubt more enjoyable Ascot days ahead.

Looks like The Queen had a problem properly closing her carriage door. It was quite funny watching her pulling it in.

I see the Royals entering Ascott in carriages, but I was wondering the normal people has too long of a walk to their seats? Just wondering how long you have to walk with high heels

Royal Ascot - Day 3:

From Ascot Racecourse twitter - Royal Ascot live updates and videos

--------------------

From BBC - Royal Ascot live updates

How the Queen came to love horse racing:
The Queen is perhaps the world's most experienced owner and breeder of racehorses. Her first winner at Royal Ascot was in 1954 and she has had 23 Ascot winners.

Her love of the sport came at an early age. She was born into a family that was passionate about horses, and she was given her first pony at the age of four, by her father, King George VI.

Her father and grandfather sparked a passion in her, that continues with vigour today.

"It is her passion for the year. It’s anticipated she’ll be there for all five days, part of the royal procession, but she doesn’t squirrel away in a viewing box, she’ll be in the paddock presenting the trophy," said BBC horse racing correspondent Cornelius Lysaght.

"She is the figurehead of the racecourse, and a hugely important figure at the track. It is always seen as her racecourse."
Quote:
15:00
Jack Winstanley, BBC Berkshire Sport Reporter:
You had to get here much earlier today if you wanted to secure a spot to see the Queen arrive.

With 60,000 racegoers here on Ladies Day, the Parade Ring has been full since about 13:15 BST, with the Queen not arriving here until an hour after that.
Quote:
15:03
Pretty wonderful in pink:
Her Majesty the Queen is living the Royal Ascot dream in pink today, a silk outfit with matching hat.

Her son, the Duke of York, has rather skillfully matched his tie with the outfit.

She is joined by Sheikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa, the son of the King of Bahrain and Sir Nicholas Bacon, the head of the Royal Horticultural Society.

What is the Queen's ride?
In the latest instalment of 'pimp my carriage', we look at the Queen's mode of transport into Ascot today.

The carriage that will be used in good weather will be an Ascot Landau, which is one of five kept by the Royal Mews - the Royal Family's stables.

It was used to carry the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for their marriage in May, and to carry the Duke (then Prince Harry) for the wedding of his brother, the Duke of Cambridge.

According to the Crown Equerry, Col. Toby Browne, the Ascot Landau is a "wonderfully bright, small, lovely carriage, very easy for people to see – the passengers can sit up quite high. So there's lots of visibility for everybody."

too long of a walk
Inevitably, its a long, tough day on ones feet.. Aside from getting to the Course, [either from the Railway Station or the Car Park], for each race, there is a walk to the Paddock, to assess 'the form' [of the horses !] , then to place ones bets, back to the Stand or Enclosure to see the Race itself, then to collect ones winnings [IF any]. Trips to the Bar, to have Tea, or Picnic 'take their toll'..
BUT that is rather the point 'to see and BE seen', to meet up with friends and to socialise.

Each time I go, i'm exhausted by it, with aching feet [and i'm in Mens 'Oxfords' NOT Stilettos] but I always come home POORER, but happy..

Isn't that the sign of a most wonderful day? You are so busy enjoying yourself and taking in the day that you don't notice how sore your feet are until you finally get home and take the shoes off and go "aaaahhhhhhhh".

I've just started to read up on Ladies' Day today and will be enjoying the updates all day long and my feet thank me for the fuzzy slippers they're wearing. I love reading about the little odds and ends about Ascot that are being posted. I never knew that there was even betting going on as to the color the Queen wears each day.

Now to grab more coffee and start looking at the photos from the day.

Thanks all.

HM looks marvelous today, the best yet of all the days so far. I love that rosy pink on her, with her coloring and white silver hair, it really brings out the softness of her cheeks and eyes.

That brooch is a favorite of mine also, a pretty rose with diamonds it looks like.

Thank you everyone for all the beautiful pictures and videos for us arm chair travelers to enjoy....

My favourites today were The Duchess of Gloucester and Lady Snowdon in their deep earthy tones with pattern.
Autumn Phillips was obvious in brilliant blue and I loved Sophie Wessex and Princess Anne.
Beatrice seemed to have a costume malfunction - accidentally wearing her skirt underneath her leotard but topped it well with a very sweet hat.
All others looked lovely.

Lady Gabriella looked great yesterday in a canary yellow dress and deep pink hat. Not sure how to post the picture though.

Tim Dellor, BBC Radio Berkshire at Royal Ascot.

No Duke of Edinburgh this year:
Buckingham Palace sources tell me that Prince Philip will not be attending Royal Ascot at all this year.

So he definitely won't be presenting the Duke of Edinburgh Stakes. That will be the job today of trainer Sir Mark Prescott.

I always like to look through the list of trophy presenters whenever I arrive at a racecourse. Today's line up includes: the Duke of York; Michael Owen will be handing over the Commonwealth Cup; Clare Balding awarding the winner of the King Edward VII Stakes.

All, let's be honest, people who would probably be here anyway - I'm not sure it's going to be a vintage day for celebrities, definitely nothing like the stars on Wednesday.

How the Queen watches her horses on a tablet:
The Queen is one of the world's most experienced racehorse owners and breeders.

At 92, her passion remains unabated - she wants to know everything about the horse she owns, keeping in touch with the progress of foals, even if she is on royal business.

Every detail is reported, and regular reports are needed. New technology can be used too, which means that CCTV in the stables of Her Majesty's horses can be accessed on a tablet.

"The advantage about the CCTV cameras is that I can be on the phone with the Queen at the same time and talking her through anything we do", said stud manager David Summers.

What happens at the Royal Procession?
Are any of you thinking: Where does the Queen arrive from? Where does everybody meet up? Or have the guests been suitably fed before arriving at Ascot?

Well you are in luck. This is the timeline of the Royal Procession.

*The Queen and her guests leave Windsor Castle at 13:35 BST after lunch.

*They are driven by car to the Ascot Gate of Windsor Great Park - otherwise known as the Golden Gates.

*Guests are transferred to horse-drawn carriages for the drive along the straight mile, in front of the grandstand.

*The procession then turns under the grandstand and into the parade ring, all in time for 14:00 BST.

Making the crowd green with envy:
The bookies were right, the Queen has gone green today for her day four procession.

She is joined in the first carriage of the Royal Procession by the Earl of Snowden, Peter Troughton, and her racing manager John Warren.

Tim Dellor, BBC Berkshire sport at Royal Ascot.

Queen going solo for the first time?
In the 15 years I have been describing this scene, it is the first time the Queen has been a solo operator, unaccompanied by her direct relatives in the Royal family.

Normally the Duke of Edinburgh is here, but my sources at Buckingham Palace tell me he will not be here for the rest of the meeting - but there is no cause for concern.

This is quite an unusual day, I wonder whether it is the first time she has been without another member of the Royal Family since she first starting coming here as Monarch in 1952.

You’d almost think Fergie never left the Firm. Everyone’s laughing and smiling to each other. It’s nice to see.

Listen, we’ve seen Sarah in the royal box at Cartier Guards Polo matches, but I don’t think we’ve seen her in the Royal Box at Royal Ascot since her marriage. Interesting!

The [regrettable] absence of the Duke of Edinburgh this year makes this possible, and the Prince of Wales in visiting Salisbury today..so no cause for awkwardness there [either].
