Outlandish hats all the rage on first day of the races

The Queen headed to sunny Royal Ascot today as punters celebrated 300 years of the famous racecourse.

Racegoers applauded the monarch as she waved to the crowds, entering the parade ground in a traditional horse drawn royal carriage procession.

The colour of the Queen’s hat is always the subject of much speculation and plentiful bets during the five day meet in Berkshire, but today the monarch opted for pale green.

Her Angela Kelly creation was made of sinamay with pink and green trimming and her matching fine wool coat and pink and green printed ivory silk satin dress was by Karl Ludwig.
