[photogallerylink id=37354 align=right]Tradition, pageantry, fashion, style – and like all things British, CRAZY HATS – all meet at one of the Royal Ascot, one of most beautiful racecourses in the world. Reportedly, the quality of the horseracing at Royal Ascot is unmatched, with nearly $8 million in prize money over 5 days of racing.
The Royal Ascot Crazy Hats, much like the Royal Wedding Crazy Hats, push the limits of fashion and style.
Each year, the Royal Ascot is attended by Queen Elizabeth and various members of the British Royal Family. They arrive each day in style with a horse-drawn carriage with the Royal procession taking place at the start of each race day and the raising of the Queen’s Royal Standard.
The Royal Ascot, along with the crazy hats, is a major event in the British social calendar, and press coverage of the attendees and what they are wearing often exceeds coverage of the actual racing.
