Royal Ascot Week

It's June and that means Royal Ascot week!

I take so many pictures of this event because around every corner is an unbelievable hat, a character, a statue or a Royal so here are a few of my favorites this year.
I'll start with "our" Ascot Family and friends because honestly, this is the best part of the day!  





New Hats.....



(Philip Treacy knock-off or the real thing?)


Always a sucker for butterflies!


Does this hat make me look old? 
And more characters .........


Makes you want something chocolate.....


Fabulous lunch and dessert.....
in the Royal Enclosure!


The Queen arrives.....



Entertainment by the "Tootsie Pops" 


Betting.....


and at the end of the day, 
flag waving and singing around the grand bandstand.....


It's always a great day at the races!
