As you all know, Royal Ascot is going to look a lot different this year than in years past. Don’t worry- despite no spectators at the races this year, we are still going to have much hat-related fun! Each day, Royal Hats will feature a retrospective of past Ascot hats worn by a royal woman whose millinery style has enthralled us at this event.
The Ascot Racecourse also invites all of us to join in the races in a unique way:
Each day of the races, a midday post will go up here on the blog to share any of the ‘home’ Ascot hats that caught your eye. Share your at home Ascot look or follow others at #royalascot or #styledwiththanks on Instagram and please, tune in here each day to discuss your favourite hats.
Royal Ascot and the British Hat Guild, led by legendary milliner Stephen Jonees have collaborated on a campaign to celebrate milliner and raise funds for four British frontline charities: The National Emergencies Trust Relief Fund, NHS Charities Together, The Care Workers Charity and the Berkshire Community Foundation. British milliners were invited to create based on a rainbow, which will be auctioned throughout Royal Ascot week. Make sure to check out all of these brilliantly beautiful hats here– my favourites by Jess Collett, Lisa Tan, Juliette Botterill and Ian Bennett are below.
To kick off next week’s Ascot retrospectives, on Friday and and next Monday we’ll dive into the closets of two more royal women for a look at the hats they have worn to Trooping the Colour and The Order of The Garter. Stay tuned!
