One thought on “Royal Ascot 2019- Day 1”
Queen Maxima wore the ginormous diamonds from the Stuart tiara as earrings. I guess Queen Letizia’s huge diamond earrings from the Joyas de Pasar and the Queen’s own Queen Mary diamond earrings they wore at the Garter ceremony gave her ideas. Q. Maxima’s are bigger, I think, so she wins! 🙂 Her dress was lovely, but her hat could have used a little trimming. Those leaves were a bit out of control! She’s very lucky to be so tall. The Duchess of Cambridge’s whole outfit was the best, IMHO. The dress was beautiful and so was the hat. I thought the Queen’s hat was excellent too and that shade of blue looks wonderful on her!
