It can prove an especially historic renewal and throw up a couple of firsts in Dream Castle.This horse can give Frankel his first Royal Ascot victor as a sire and Josephine Gordon her first victor there.

Perhaps wanting to play it safe for the big day out with the Queen and numerous other members of the British Royal Family, the duchess stunned in a high-neck white lace dress by one of her go-to British designers, Alexander McQueen.

Meanwhile the Queen, who is known to love watching horse-racing, looked thrilled to be there.

Up to 300,000 people are due to descend on the event over the next five days. Her day starts as early as 4:30 am and does not generally end until about 8:30 pm, once she's spoken to the owners of the horses she trains. In a transparent lace dress signed by Alexander McQueen, the Duchess of Cambridge offered the luxury of being very dressed, while letting her skin breathe. That includes her snow-white costume for the Ascot scene, which includes memorable black-and-white-striped bows above the breast, at the hips and on the wide-brimmed hat.

Despite taking a slight drift in the market, the 11/10 favourite found plenty for pressure to register his third success at Group One level, whilst simultaneously providing Fahey with his sixth success at the Royal Meeting. "He needs racing now as he's not had many (runs) but he does go well fresh". Cheers and drinks will abound as attendees enjoy the traditional elegance and customary revelry that mark the jubilant occasion.

The Princess Royal joined the Cambridges along with the Earl and Countess of Wessex.

The big news in the fashion stakes this year is that jumpsuits (full length) are allowed. The last time a style adjustment was made was when pant suits were included in the 1970's. It would take most of us at least an hour to pick our way through the traffic, but a police escort will probably ease her path to the track and ensure that the Queen is in place for the Royal procession at 2pm. "We want the event to be perceived as very stylish". Our customers and our members, particularly in the Royal Enclosure, have high expectations of what formal attire is.
