Royal Ascot

Ascot Racecourse was founded by Queen Anne in 1711 and Royal Acot is a highlight of the horse racing year and the English Social Season. Dress code in the exclusive Royal Enclosure, seen here in 2002, is rigorous... day dresses and hats for women with no bare midriffs or shoulders, while men are required to wear black or grey morning dress with a top hat. No wonder I was confined to the Press box! From my book, "Being English"
