Royal Ascot 2013 Highlights

This Saturday my friends and I attended Royal Ascot to wear big silly hats and bet on horses. 
As I said in my last post, I have no clue about betting and tend to just pick what ever name takes my fancy. 
The first horse I picked wasn't running, which was just my luck. Then after losing on two horses I sort of lost interest in betting and forgot that was the main reason people were there. 
I decided to take my attention to drinking Pimm's and gossiping- typical. 

After some drinking and gossiping we made our way down to watch the Royal Procession where I got super, duper close to The Queen.
I absolutely love having a Royal Family, I think it brings the entire nation together and gives us all a bit of British pride.
I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Royal baby as it will prompt so many patriotic parties and events, reminding us all how amazing the Royal Wedding was all over again.

Although I didn't win any money that's never the reason I go to Ascot so I wasn't too disheartened. The way I see it is you go to get dressed up and have a nice day out with your friends and if you manage to win anything then it's a bonus. 
If you went to any of the race days I hope you were a little luckier than I was.
