Well Royal Ascot is here and we had a fantastic day on Tuesday, the opening of the new grandstand. What a brilliant job they have made of it, the view was great. Everyone makes such an effort to get drssed up. The colours and hats make it a special event. Seeing my cousin Jill and her husband Thomas was fantastic, we had a buffet lunch with champagne it was great.
We saw the Queen arriving in her carriage down the centre of the race track. The horses are magnificent. The atmosphere is electric, I'd recommend it ! Its so much fun and a good excuse for a new dress and hat!
