Queen Elizabeth steals the show at day 5 of Royal Ascot
Glam racegoers, members of the royal family, and the Queen herself presented a delightful vision of summer colour at Royal Ascot on Super Saturday with the sun shining on the famous racecourse as thousands of people descended on the event to place a flutter.
According to The Sun, women donned summery frocks and fascinators for the final day of the races — one of the biggest events in the Royal calendar.
Punters were this week forced to shelter under umbrellas after heavy rain dampened spirits at Ascot.
The Queen made an appearance at the races again today, after visiting every day this week.
Her Majesty looked summery in a light green dress and coat with a big hat featuring white flowers.
She looked radiant as she arrived in a horse-drawn carriage to the delight of other racegoers. She seemed energetic and very mobile, getting about unescorted and smiling and enjoying the festivities.
Her green dress was accessorised with white gloves and a black leather handbag.
Ascot is attended by thousands of people each year after the first Royal Meeting took place in1768.
It is Britain’s most popular race meeting — welcoming 300,000 racegoers across the five days.
