It's the start of Royal Ascot and here over at Woman's Own we couldn’t be happier as it means just one thing – hat watch! From the big fancy fashion fails to the more demure classy stylish numbers we love spotting a great Royal Ascot hat!
Staging 26 race days over the year, the most prestigious, most watched race days are of course Royal Ascot and especially the opening day when The Queen arrives by horse-drawn carriage, followed by Ladies Day on the Thursday.
Everyone loves to attend Ascot in June, even famous Hollywood names, but it's the Royals everyone looks out for.
From The Queen to Princess Beatrice, Camilla to Zara and more, their outfits and the hats are always the most talked about!
