The most popular horse racing event in the British calendar returned this June with an incredible week of spectacular fashion, delicious food and drink and an atmosphere that is completely unmatched.

Royal Ascot welcomed up to 300,000 racegoers including members of the British Royal Family and numerous celebrities over the five days. Founded by Queen Anne in 1711, the iconic event is without a doubt one of the most glamorous race meetings in the world and takes place in June each year.

This year Kate Middleton and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, made a surprise appearance on day four, leading the royal family in the carriage processional that traditionally travels along the famous track before the beginning of the races.

Fashion at Royal Ascot 

The fashion at Royal Ascot is certain to exceed all expectations as the event is renowned for displaying the most outlandish looks from all attendees in a bid to show off their best dresses and beautiful headpieces.

It is one of the most highly-anticipated events of the year with the fashion often taking centre stage. The headwear alone is always a sight to behold with headbands, wide-brimmed hats and fascinators all being as much of a feature as the horses themselves.

There is a strict dress code in place for women and men reflecting the tradition and history of Royal Ascot, however due the high temperatures this year there were unexpected changes at Ascot 2022 for the first time and event officials relaxed the dress code by permitting men to remove their jackets and ties.

 

What to wear?

There are four main enclosures attended by guests; The Royal Enclosure, The Queen Anne Enclosure, The Village and The Windsor Enclosure, all of which have a slightly different dress code.

The Royal Enclosure has evolved and expanded over time but remains an invitation- only membership and has the strictest dress code of all enclosures. Women must wear hats and make sure their dresses are of modest length and comply with required formal day wear and men must wear a top hat, a vest or waistcoat and tailcoat.

Fancy dress, novelty and branded / promotional clothing are not permitted.

Highlights from 2022

Over the week there were a total of 35 races, each day hosting seven races that take place between 2.30pm and 6.10pm. There were a number of stand out horses with arguably the performance of the week from Australian sprinter Nature Strip when he stunned with a sensational performance in the King’s Stand Stakes, winning the race by nearly five lengths. 

The top trainer of the week was Aidan O’Brien with five winners, taking his overall tally to 81 and just one short of the all-time record holder Sir Michael Stoute.
