The Queen’s favorite week of the year is finally happening, and she couldn’t be more happy! Her Majesty is known to have a special fondness of horses, so it’s not surprising she gets excited for five full days of horse racing.
Royal Ascot is considered to be Britain’s most valuable race. Many of the world’s finest racehorses compete for more than £7.3m in prize money.
The 92-year-old monarch and other members of the royal family attended the first day of the event, arriving in traditional horse-drawn carriages and greeting the public.
The Queen looked as bright as June’s sunshine in a gorgeous yellow outfit with a matching hat. You can’t hold a smile when looking at her excited face!
The new Duchess of Sussex arrived as well, making her Ascot debut in a white shirt dress and a stunning black and white fascinator. She smiled at cheering crowd whilst seating next to her husband, Prince Harry.
The newlyweds shared a carriage with Sophie, Countess of Wessex.
Last year Royal Ascot was just as glamorous. Lucky attendees got to enjoy amazing horse races as well as flamboyant fashion.
In 2017, the Queen opted for a less eye-catchy look when she appeared in a muted-pink outfit. One thing that has never changed during Ascot no matter what is Her Majesty’s excited smile.
Which the Queen’s outfit do you prefer – striking yellow or gentle pink?
