It’s racing season and there’s one event on the racing calendar that the entire nation will be looking at: Royal Ascot. The most prestigious racing event of the year takes place from Tuesday, 17th June 2014, to Saturday, 21st June 2014 and dates back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne.
Nowadays, it’s Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and her family who make Royal Ascot one Europe’s most popular racing events. Every morning the Royal Family arrive in a horse-drawn carriage with the Royal procession taking place and the world’s media is right there with them. What does the Queen wear? Who made The Duchess of Cambridge’s dress and whose outfit was the biggest fashion faux-pas? The attendees’ fashion sense is very often more discussed than the results of the races and that’s why I thought it would be a good idea to give the ladies among you an idea of what you could wear. The dress code for Royal Ascot differs quite a bit from regular racing events at Ascot, when we went to Ascot’s Family last year, it was very much a smart but casual feel, for Royal Ascot however you are expected to dress to impress.
