The Queen was greeted by huge cheers as she attended the first day of Royal Ascot, dressed in an elegant coat and dress by Stewart Parvin.
Her thoughts were also with Prince Philip, who was unable to attend due to his recent stint in hospital.
Throughout the week, bookmakers were taking bets on the choice of colour for the Queen's hat. Pink was the favourite at 4/1, while blue was also a popular choice with betting at 6/1. Click link for full post from Hello Magazine.

As Royal spotting goes, this enthusiastic young woman has surely scored gold with her picture of both Princes Harry and William.
What she lacked in subtlety, however, she more than made up for in enthusiasm as she realised she had successfully snapped both of the brothers at the International Audi Polo in Beaufort, Gloucestershire, this afternoon.

In many ways it was a very familiar Royal balcony tableau. Prince William and Kate giggled and flirted. The Queen, striking in blue, acknowledged the spectacular fly-past with a beatific smile.
There was some good-natured tomfoolery from Prince Harry, who made his sister-in-law laugh with a tickling gesture. And there was even a mildly recalcitrant child, Prince Edward’s five-year-old son James, Viscount Severn, who couldn’t resist making faces.
But the glaring omission from yesterday’s line-up at the Queen’s official birthday celebrations was, of course, the Duke of Edinburgh, who is still recovering from abdominal surgery.
Without his bolstering presence, the scene appeared incomplete.
No sooner had she dispensed her final wave, though, than Her Majesty was off to visit her husband in hospital.

The Duke, 92, received no fewer than six visitors, and at one point had the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Princes William and Harry at this bedside at the same time.
Buckingham Palace said there was no update on the Duke’s condition, other than that he was continuing to recover, but the fact that he felt well enough to have so many visitors suggests he is getting stronger by the day.
The Duke’s first visitors of the day were his granddaughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who arrived at the London Clinic shortly after midday. Click link for full post from The Telegraph.

Kate Middleton has attended her last solo public engagement before she begins her maternity leave.
A great cheer went up around Southampton Docks and applause rang out as the heavily pregnant royal alighted from her chauffeur-driven to name a new cruise ship. Smiling and gently cradling her bump, she made her way to the podium for the start of the ceremony.
The trend-setting Duchess, 31, had pulled out all the sartorial stops for her final official outing, and looked particularly elegant in a £169 monochrome leopard coat from high street favourite Hobbs and a black fascinator.
Huge crowds had gathered to catch a glimpse of the mum-to-be, and some stars had also braved the inclement weather to welcome expectant Kate to the city, including Sir Bruce Forsyth, Des O'Connor and EastEnders Samantha Womack.
