The Royal Ascot is an exceedingly popular event where some of the finest racehorses meet to battle it out for millions of pounds. It’s situated in Ascot, Berkshire and is known as one of the UK’s leading racecourses. Now, we provided some country fashion inspiration for the Cheltenham Festival, we thought it was only right that we do the same or this huge racing event too! It’s time to get the fancy hat out at the back of your wardrobe and break the tweed out as well!
The Royal Ascot is happening on Tuesday 18th June – Saturday 22nd June, so it’s 5 days of excitement, fashion, and a bit of stress if you’re going to be watching your favourite horse!
