The Duchess of Cornwall looks lovely, IMO. One of my favorite outfits of last years Royal Ascot.

Oh she does indeed. It is such a beautiful ceremony to watch.
I'm glad that a royal has decided to wear england colours today.

As I said before I am surprised that Charles rode because of his chest infection, the sun is shining and the uniform he is wearing is very heavy, which must make breathing difficult.

They are now on their way back to the palace. I loved the Queen's outfit! Can't believe the BBC are going to stop broadcasting before the balcony appearance and fly past

If you have freeview or sky you can press the red button and watch the balcony appearance and the fly past. That is what I am doing.
They have to stop for the news and then presumably the football.

Not many royals on the balcony, quite a big gap on the left hand side.

Royals are on the balcony now, watching what seems like 20 planes fly past.
Princess Michael is stood behind the Queen again.
Sophie and Edward have made an appearance, as has Princess Alexandra and Prince Michael of Kent. That is all I can see at the moment as they are focusing on the Queens close up.

Princess Beatrice's outfit looks like something an old woman would wear and the colours are so heavy and not summery at all. I also wish she would do something with her hair. Eugenie is wearing the ubiquitous white jacket with IMO a cheap looking red dress, her hair too very unkept looking with a big red plate hat stuck to the front. When will they ever learn how to dress?

Lovely appearances of the royal ladies!

Has anyone seen Louise this time, I can only find the children of
Lady Helen, Lord Linley and Lady Sarah so far. Would be a pity if
she wasn't there this time after her cute appearance last year..

Oh, you're right! How wonderful! I wonder what prompted her to come out of hiding? It's always so lovely to see her.

The DOK has actually attended TTC the last few years but she's normally right at the end and it's not always been easy to see her. I watched the coverage on BBC i-player and from left to right I spotted Lord and Lady Nicholas, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester without any of their children and onwards from there we can see Eugenie and the rest from the balcony pics. Princess Alexandra is standing beside Princess M just behind Prince Philip and she was wearing a green coat and white hat but I don't suppose anyone is going to criticise her for standing in the middle even though she's not a member of the immediate family.

It makes me laugh every year, maybe we are being to harsh and its just a coincedence that every year pretty much Princess Michael happens to be standing as close to the Queen as possible. I mean it can't have anything to do with knowing that she'll make it into the papers that way.

Outwith today and last year you have to go back years, I actually think the early 1990's, before you will find a pic of Princess M in the middle of the balcony at this event.

The Queen does not seem annoyed by Princess Michaels nearness.... Perhaps she even likes it? If not so she surely would have a word with her.

I always failed to see what is special about the Duchess of Kent. Same goes for Helen Taylor. I would have preferred seeing Lady Gabriella. Will Frederick and Sophie attend Ascot?

I agree about the DOK. No harm to her but I don't find her interesting at all, or her daughter. Lady Gabriella has been touring South America for the past 18 months and that's why she missed it this year and last which is a pity as I would rather have seen her above anyone else as she is very stylish.

The Duchess of Kent was, back in her heyday (being when she was actively involved on a regular basis) a most splendid sight to behold. She was really something imo; every inch the royal Duchess when on display.

I tend to find Gabriella a damn bore...lol. No loss there imo.

Duchess of Cornwall is looking lovely, one of my favourite hats on her and one of my all time favourite chokers ever! I thought the york girls looked nice, it was lovely seeing all the younger generations. Who are the handsome young boy and girl on the right of the balcony?

I wish I had seen the Duchess of Kent in her heyday. She just oozes femininity to me and she had a great set of jewels.

Happy to see Katherine Duchess of Kent, not surprised to see Princess Michael again in the highlight between the Queen and her husband, admiring Duchess Camilla sitting next to Prince William, smiling to see the young Yorks princesses with blankets..
