The Queen, Tea, and Royal Ascot. What could be more British? Ladies, get out your dress and hats, Gents, get out your top hats and tails, Ascot is just weeks away.
Ascot Racecourse in Berkshire is a few miles from Windsor Castle. Dating from 1711, it is Britain’s most prestigious racecourse and is attended every year by the Royal Family, including HRH Queen Elizabeth. Each day before the racing there is a Royal Procession, in which members of the royal family travel in a horse-drawn carriage along the track.Tickets available via your Personal Page.
Royal Ascot is more famously known as a social event in which men dress up in their finest suits and ladies wear their best dresses and most flamboyant hats. In the Silver Ring, there is no formal dress code, although dressing as smart as possible is highly encouraged. In the Grandstand, individuals must “dress in a manner as befits a formal occasion.” Ladies wear a hat or headpiece and these must be worn at all times. Men entering the Grandstand are required to wear a suit with a shirt and tie.
