Royal Ascot 2016- Day 1

Royal Ascot is a permanent fixture on the British Royal Family’s June calendar. HM the Queen attends all five days of the horse-racing event, while most members of the Royal Family attend on Ladies Day, the climax of the event. Usually, the Royal family arrive on the racecourse in carriages, and then spend the day in the Royal Box.
