The sun has shone so beautifully for Royal Ascot 2013 - It honestly is my favourite summer event and we do it so well. I feel so proud every day watching the queen arrive in her carriage, in all her finery - on the most beautiful turf on earth!
And of course, it means I get to check out the fashion for the entire week!
There surely is not a girl in the land that does not want to dress up and look pretty, and you are never going to have a bigger excuse than at Ascot - and best of all you can finish off the outfit with dainty gloves and glorious hats - How very splendid!
Of course, Queenie always gets it completely right.
She always wears a colour so she can stand out, as she believes (quite rightly) that the Queen needs to stand out and be seen
Beatrice and Eugenie wore lots of Red Valentino this week.
A great youthful designer range that worked beautifully on them both
Sophie Wessex had a great week too.
And she looked really happy!
Viscountess Serena Linley
Danielle Lineker looked absolutely beautiful in
a dreamy and super delicate Nina Ricci dress
(my absolute favourite look of the entire week)

Lady Helen Taylor
Peter Phillips & his wife Autumn Kelly
Princess Haya never disappoints!
Seen here with her husband Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
and in Louis Vuitton sell out S/S 2013
Andy Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears
Olympic Cyclist Victoria Pendleton
Ladies Day produced its very own fairy tale.
The Queen won the Gold Cup - the first Monarch to ever do so.
I adore a little bit of history - and who could possibly not be moved
by the genuine look of pleasure on the Queens face!

One of my favourite outfits was this delicate baby blue Tweed Chanel Suit
and this beautiful girl wore her hat incredibly
Sigh, shall we all dress up tomorrow and eat cucumber sandwiches!
