It’s tradition on the first day of Royal Ascot to place your bets on the colours the Queen will wear.
On Tuesday Her Majesty rocked shocking pink for the annual racing event – but what other fabulous outfits has she donned during her 63-year reign?
Here are the best vintage photos of what the Queen wore to Royal Ascot in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 1990.
These photos were taken during her first Royal Ascot as Queen.
A fortnight after her Coronation, the Queen was pictured with her mother, the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, the Princess Royal and the Duchess of Kent at Royal Ascot. And here is what she wore on the first day.
It looks like it was cold at Royal Ascot in June 1954 as the Queen wore fur over her dress. She was accompanied by her sister Princess Margaret and her mother.
Summer frocks were perfect for the Queen and her sister Margaret in 1955.
We think the Queen Mother outdid her daughter this year.
Was the Duke of Edinburgh smiling for the camera?
Now wasn’t that hat just lovely?
Prince Philip held an umbrella for his wife as the open Landau arrived on the race track.
It was like Where’s Wally? when the Queen walked through the crowd at Royal Ascot. But here’s a clearer view of her outfit – it was peach with a large white hat by the way.
The Queen was bang on with the polka dot 1980s trend for Royal Ascot in 1985.
And she wore yellow in 1986.
And in 1990 she looked beautiful in blue.
We don’t think we can call any photos after that vintage – it will make us feel too old!
