The third day of the five day horse racing meet of the Royal Ascot, held at Berkshire, is know as “Ladies’ Day” and is considered one of the highlights of the racing calendar. Horse racing has been held at the famous Berkshire course since 1711 and tradition is a hallmark of the meeting. Top hats and tails remain compulsory in parts of the course while a daily procession of horse-drawn carriages brings the Queen to the course.
