Royal Ascot is the highlight of the summer, and again Ladies Day is not to be missed on day three of the meeting; the same day as the prestigious Gold Cup race. This week has already provided us with the warm summer sunshine we all yearn for, so it’s summer dresses at the ready and a bottle of Champagne or jug of Pimms in hand.
This year may not be the same as usual with covid restrictions and a limited number of spectators however, it is fantastic to see that Royal Ascot can go ahead and shine a positive light on what has been a very tough year and a half for us all. With this in mind, we are already looking forward to June 2022 when we can all take part in this fantastic week of racing action and excitement without any further restrictions. Check out our other blog on all of the Racingbreaks.com hotel and ticket packages available for 2022 here.
Royal Ascot is a prestigious event which dates back to 1711, when high society would gather in top hats and tails to watch some of the finest horses battle it out on the turf. While things have changed a little since then, there is still an element of tradition to keep up with. Hats, for example, are a must for ladies; there is normally fierce competition to wear the best, whether it be designer or homemade.
