I saw some news coverage about it this morning and I've heard about it previously (probably the first time was when I saw My Fair Lady years ago). Perhaps some of the Brits here could clue me in? The only other horse race I know of where the attendees dress up is the Kentucky Derby here in the States.
Where ever there are rich horse owners there are elite club houses members only with dress codes....same way with country club golf memberships....Doctor Ford raped by Kavanaugh both belonged to an exclusive country club where she had been swimming and tanning all day put a dress on over her swimsuit and went straight to his awaiting rapist party ....drunken Mark Judge jumping onto the rape bed bouncing victim and rapist Kavanaugh to the floor breaking his suffocation hand hold over her screaming mouth ....otherwise she would have died raped and "brewskis" poured all over and in her to cover up attempted murder rape evidence....rich kids now reversing polluter decisions of lower courts so all of us can dress up dying of poison in our lungs
Horse racing is considered the "sport of kings." So, horse raising, training, and racing has long been a tradition with royalty from many cultures. Ascot is the premiere horse race for England, just like the Kentucky Derby is the premiere horse race for the US. Royal Ascot is when the royal family is in attendance at Ascot and comes with a procession of the royal family in carriages into Ascot. Queen Elizabeth's stables are represented with purple and red colors worn by the Queen's jockeys and are known as the "Queen's Silks."
Royal Ascot is a horse racing track in Berkshire...close to London. There is racing there all the year round, but for one week in June there are a series of racing events at which the Queen and other members of the Royal Family attend. There is a Ladies Day on the Thursday on which the ladies are expected to wear high fashion, especially in their headgear....hats are the order of the day! I’ve never been myself, but have friends who go regularly....it’s one of the places fashionable people like to be seen.
