Special thanks again to Katie Vale of Katie Vale Designs for joining us all week to share her thoughts on this year’s millinery. I officially sign off Ascot coverage with this photo  Zenouska Mowatt (grand-daughter of Princess Alexandra of Kent) graciously shares with us. Zenouska is seen here, in the middle, in a glorious Jane Taylor designed hat (The Betsy shown here) enjoying a glass of bubbly at the races with two friends. I think this captures the glamour, the excitement and the pure fun that is Royal Ascot. Thanks for sharing this lovely moment with us, Zenouska!

  1. Thank you for having me on the blog! I really enjoyed being able to comment! Even my Dad read them! I got a text one day from him saying I was to be nicer to the Queen! 🙂

  2. You and Katie did such a great job! It was so much fun to read your bantering back and forth about the hats! I read it every day with a big grin.

    • Thank you! I was busy at my “real job” last week and felt that I was very slow in getting some posts up. I’m so glad it did not feel that way to you!
