The Royal Meeting at Ascot Racecourse has ended for the year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t discuss the wonderful fashion and royalty sightings from this year’s Royal Ascot.  Despite the Duke of Edinburgh being hospitalized, the meeting was full of lovely clothes and exciting racing.

Tons of pictures can be found here.

None of Her Majesty’s horses won this year, but the Queen seems to have enjoyed herself even so.

Much like the Kentucky Derby in the US, Royal Ascot is known for fashion and crazy hats.  Here are some photos of the royal family in their Ascot best (including the Duchess of Cambridge, beautiful as always in white lace).  For wacky hats, click here.
