Royal Ascot 2015 (16-21 June) has not let us down. Where else are the sporting (and fashion) stakes quite so high?
For royalists there’s the suspense of The Queen’s outfit colour choice, for fashionistas the hat offering ranges from couture to comedy (equally enjoyable spectacles) and for the people who took it steady at lunch and can see out from under their hat to watch the horses in action, this year’s racing has given us our fair share of thrills and spills.
And the best part? It’s not over yet. Tune in to Channel 4 for all the top class action from Ascot this afternoon and tomorrow.
