20 June 2019, Royal Ascot, Berkshire, England ~ It is not to be understated about the English reverence and love for the Royal Family. The Royal Ascot is as much a racing event for Royals as for the rest of the world and everything stops when the Queen arrives.
Her Majesty The Queen has arrived to rapturous applause and “three cheers for Her Majesty” on the third day of the Royal Meeting 2019. The rain clouds have stayed away and umbrellas are down.
Alongside the monarch in carriage one was The Duke of York, The Princess Royal (Princess Anne) and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.
The Queen is wearing an Angela Kelly outfit and hat. The coat is metal grey jacquard embossed in a basket weave pattern with lemon flowers taken from the dress appliqued onto the collar and shoulders of the coat.
Her dress is made of silk, has a grey coloured background with lemon flowers. The hat is pleated with a crin brim in the colour metal grey adorned with spikey feathers and forsythia flowers.
The brooch she is wearing is a present from the Sultan of Oman; the flower is of yellow diamonds with diamond leaves.
Angela Kelly is the personal advisor to Her Majesty (The Queen’s Wardrobe), and is the curator and designer of the Queen’s clothing.
