This is a surprise! I’d heard the rumor was that they were going to show up on Wednesday, because it’s the Duke of Cambridge Cup. How very tricky of them — and perhaps how very unwise, as it’s SO HOT in London right now. One of you — who was attending today, I believe! We cannot wait for your report from the field! — told us that they actually noted that men should feel free to remove their jackets today, against general dress code, so as not to…you know. PASS OUT.

Anyway, back to these two. This is Kate’s favorite Ascot look, I guess, as it’s VERY SIMILAR to what she wore to Ascot LAST TIME, although this one is McQueen.  It certainly IS airy. Stay cool, Great Britain!
