Top hat provides the smartest tip for Eddie at Royal Ascot meeting

IT may have been hot for a top hat, but Eddie and Marie Jordan were cool as a breeze for Day Two of the 2014 Royal Ascot meeting yesterday.

The world-famous fashion meet is as much a social and style event as a sporting fixture and it attracts some of the best thoroughbreds, jockeys and trainers in the world.

Queen Elizabeth started off festivities by taking part in the traditional carriage procession along the course.

She was joined by the Duke of Edinburgh, Duke of York and Prince Harry in her carriage.

Veteran entertainer Sir Bruce Forsyth, his wife Wilnelia and TV presenter Eamonn Holmes were also spotted among the racegoers, as was Danielle Lineker, wife of BBC World Cup host Gary.
