Congrats to Queen Elizabeth’s horse Estimate, who won the Gold Cup at Ascot today. I particularly enjoyed Buzzfeed’s blow-by-blow photo stream of the Royal Family watching the race.
It’s the first time in the race’s 207-year history that a monarch’s horse has won!
Under the new rules, no fascinators or cravats are banned in the royal enclosure. Strapless dresses are outlawed. Waistcoasts and ties are required, as are skirts and/or dresses that are just above knee length or longer. Personally I am a lover of a good fascinator and cravat and am sad to see them both go.
Someone might need to stage a “Footloose”-style intervention…
