With the clue in the name, Royal Ascot is hugely popular with the monarchy and Her Majesty has attended every year since ascending the throne – and this year has been no exception.
Today she was joined by two of her children – Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Princess Anne.
Royal Ascot Ladies Day is one of the most glamorous occasions in the British social calendar and the full spectrum of race day style was on show, with many in the mood to take a fashion risk, especially when it came to elaborate headwear.

The term Ladies Day was first used in 1823 when an anonymous poet described the Thursday of the annual meeting as ‘Ladies’ Day… when the women, like angels, look sweetly divine.’
While there is no official prize on offer for best dressed lady as there is at other race meetings, ticket holders were still eager to put their best foot forward.
Up to 300,000 people are due to descend on the event over the course of five days and naturally the stylish days out are a magnet for celebrities.
