Royal Ascot: Day Four Hats

My favourite hats for day four at Royal Ascot are worn by Her Majesty the Queen and Princess Eugenie.

Queen Elizabeth II

The titfers worn by the Queen at Royal Ascot thus far have seemed predictable and not very exciting. Although the colours have been luxe perhaps it was the “heaviness” of the brocade fabric which also matched the coat that I didn’t find very appealing.

No matter. I like Her Majesty’s hat today very well indeed. The colour is fabulous on her, I like the size and shape of the crown, “cartwheel” brim, and the silk flowers with straw twists decorating it. I even like the coat. Yes, indeed. Her Majesty looks most festive.

Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie looks terrific again today. She has certainly worn some lovely hats this Royal Ascot. Today she is wearing another navy hat this time with the same angled upturned brim but with yellow flowers sewn around the base at the front of the crown. And that dress. Gorgeous!

I can’t imagine Americans ever doing anything like this. I miss England.

SHAWN WATCH — Silver and Black Pride report that:

“Marshawn Lynch joined the Oakland Raiders on April 27 under much fanfare. He took number 24 as expected and the orders immediately started pouring in from fans wanting a piece of history as Beast Mode will finally suit up for his hometown team. Making his jersey the top selling for the month of May at NFL shop.

“It wasn’t hard to predict the popularity of Lynch’s merchandise upon joining the Raiders. He is an immensely popular former All Pro running back who is beloved in Oakland and beyond.

“Lynch may be the top selling jersey, but he isn’t the only Raiders player jersey among the league’s top 25. Derek Carr was the 6th best selling jersey and Khalil Mack was the 15th best selling.

“The Raiders are the only team with three players in the top 15.”

Yeah.
