After a wet and bleak start, Royal Ascot 2019 Day 3 aka Ladies day came with much welcomed shine. Of course, it wasn’t just the rays of sunshine that descended. Agreably, it was also racegoers in droves, sporting acres and acres of millinery splendour. Like it or not, there’s such old school grace about a lady in a hat.
Indeed, we experienced the height of this grace watching the ladies in the Royal Enclosure. Whilst also indulging in the thrill of race betting. In this enclosure, hats with a minimum 4-inch base must be worn, strapless dresses are a no-no. As expected, midriffs must be covered, and trouser suits must be full length and matching. In a nutshell, there’s absolutley no room for gracelessness. For the Royal procession, HRH accompanied in her carriage by Princess Anne and Prince Andrew. Not to mention she wore a matching lilac dress and hat. This lady has got the sublimely sweet and regal look down pat.
