While Charles has prepared two more posts for us to enjoy before Ascot begins next week (and I’ll finish up the extended royal family hats worn for Trooping the Colour later tomorrow), he emailed me from the airport en route to the UK (minutes away from boarding his flight!) with a brilliant idea. As he mentioned previously, one of the early bets each day at Ascot is for Queen Elizabeth’s hat.
Now that we have seen the Queen’s yellow and green hats (UPDATE and bright pink for the Patron’s Lunch) worn for her birthday celebrations this weekend, I thought it might be helpful to also consider what the Queen has worn on the first three days of Ascot for the past six years:
Day 1: Tuesday
Day 2: Wednesday
Day 3: Thursday
