Royal style & gossip: What a smashing, positively dashing spectacle - the Ascot opening day

Obviously today's the second day of Ascot but given Kate's outfit yesterday, I felt a My Fair lady tribute was fitting!

Are they all there again today?

pinkladyapples Wed 19-Jun-19 11:47:57

Thanks Queen!

AudacityOfHope Wed 19-Jun-19 11:48:55

Here we go again! Thanks Queen

Thank you @QueenOfTheAndals for the new thread.

Thanks Queen

Thanks for new thread - it would be lovely if Zara and Eug were preggers at the same time wouldn't it? A nice big bunch of royal children at similar ages would be a very positive thing going forward I think - mind I like big families!

I haven't quite finished reading the last thread but I wanted to say with W & C being as they are over the elderly lady's wellbeing I wonder if the woman from the crash with the Duke of Edinburgh will come out and moan how she never got a visit. She's been quiet since charged with motoring offences herself.

Gosh all those threads! Thanks @QueenOfTheAndals

Wonder if Meghan will make an appearance. Ascot seems to be a real family catch up.
I wonder if some of the «lesser» royals like Lady Sarah Chatto will ever make an appearance <hopeful >

Thanks Queen. They do all look very happy and relaxed together, don't they? I agree with a PP saying it might be less relaxed if Meghan and Harry were there.

Thanks for the new thread Queen.

I think if Meghan is going to attend one day out of the week it will be Ladies Day on Thursday, but I don't think she will.

Sophie and Edward; 20 years today. Definitely the longest marriage of their generation

BigGreenOlives Wed 19-Jun-19 12:33:21

Sophie hasn’t changed very much has she, lovely smile then and now.

Laiste Wed 19-Jun-19 12:34:45

I don' think she will either. It's a famous, highly scrutinised outdoors event with a lot of hanging about in full view of photographers while socialising informally. About as bad as it gets for a first engagement as a very new mum and a reasonably new member of the family after a long while out of the spot light.

Or maybe she'll be there with bells on and i'm just projecting?! grin

Laiste Wed 19-Jun-19 12:38:16

I just think at this event there's soooo much scope for oooh look how she twitched slightly when Harry did x, or oooh look how Kate turned her head 2 degrees left when Meghan was on her right, that if i was MM i'd avoid this one this year.

(don't get me wrong though; speaking for myself - i hope she goes! I love all gossip wink)

ChardonnaysPrettySister Wed 19-Jun-19 12:39:35

Sophie’s outfit would have been much better without the matching hat.

Didn’t like Kate’s hat as well.

frugalkitty Wed 19-Jun-19 12:49:04

Checking in, thanks Queen

StCharlotte Wed 19-Jun-19 12:50:01

Thanks for the new thread *Queen - great title.

Pretty sure I've been on all of them. Might check out the early ones to see what we were saying back then!

The last few seem to have speeded up somewhat, or is that just me?

Horsemad Wed 19-Jun-19 13:05:41

Thanks for the new thread.

Anyone else having a guess at HM's colour scheme today??

pinkladyapples Wed 19-Jun-19 13:09:39

Tatler has a good look back at some of Kate's hats and headbands. I think I love her maple leaf one the most grin

QueenOfTheAndals Wed 19-Jun-19 13:14:04

Sophie looks better now than she did when she married Edward. The fashions of the late 90s/early noughties were not kind to anyone.

QueenOfTheAndals Wed 19-Jun-19 13:14:25

@Horsemad Perhaps yellow for HM today?

pinkladyapples Wed 19-Jun-19 13:16:47

@Horsemad I am saying pink.

Horsemad Wed 19-Jun-19 13:20:39

Oh those hats 😍 I love them!
