And finally, I sign off today with my “Nod to Milliners” pick, a pair of flowering cactus hats made by staff at Petershams Millinery Suppliers in London. I realise this stretches my classification of ‘milliners’ but these hats are such conversation pieces (with amazing detail) that I couldn’t resist sharing. Brilliant and bonkers- what Ascot hats should be.

See you all tomorrow!
