The Royal Ascot

Hello Lovelies,

This week welcomes the beginning of The Royal Ascot an English tradition heavily attended by the royal family since 1711.

There have been some fab pictures floating around of all of the fantastic attendees in their gorgeous attire... these are just some of the pictures that caught my eye! The Preppy Princess has given us a wonderful summary of the dress code for this royal event. Be sure to drop by and see her coverage of the Royal Ascot!

In the meantime lets feast our eyes on some stunning Brits shall we?

Top hats, princes, AND a horse race? Yes... please!

Of course one would feel entirely charmed to belong in such a crowd.

Charming doesn't begin to describe it...truly it's like something out of a novel.

This certainly makes the American tradition of tailgating look rather crass!

We like your post, great crowd shots, and of course you managed to include an image we completely forgot, a horse, rather vital to the whole thing!

Big smiles at you!

I love this! It would be so fun to see this in person. It's so classy. Ah, if only tailgating was like this here in America. I would totally love it!
