Forget the racing, as usual, it's all about the fashion - the Irish designer is once again the most in-demand man in millinery.

Queen Elizabeth led the royals accompanies by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at the head of a procession which travelled along the course past stands packed with punters.

Among the famous faces at the Berkshire racecourse were opera singer Katherine Jenkins, Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and BBC sports presenter Gary Lineker.

Jenkins said she was attracted to the glamorous side of the event: "I love Royal Ascot, it's just so old-fashioned – old-fashioned glamour, old-fashioned traditions." The star wore a bright orange and pink hat by popular Irish milliner Philip Treacy and a matching dress. She added: "I would wear a hat every day if I could." The queen's horse Estimate will run in the Gold Cup tomorrow and is a favourite with some bookmakers.

A victory in the race would be a boost for the queen who will attend without the Duke of Edinburgh, who is convalescing at Windsor Castle after abdominal surgery.
