The Hottest Hats at Ascot

Royal Ascot might be for royals and double-barrelled-named racegoers, but we love it for the hats. From the huge feathery fascinators to chic, sculptured creations, we can't get enough of the headgear - the bigger, the better, we say. With the Irish racing season just about to kick off - Dubai Duty Free here we come! - we take a look at our favourite hat-wearers from day one of Royal Ascot. Tally-ho!

Royal Ascot might be for royals and double-barrelled racegoers, but we love it for the hats. From the huge feathery fascinators to chic, sculptured creations, we can’t get enough of the headgear. The bigger and madder, the better, we say. With the Irish racing season just about to kick off – Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby here we come! – we take a look at our favourite hat-wearers from day one of Royal Ascot. Tally-ho!
