In pictures: Head-turning millinery at Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day 2022


Thousands of racegoers have donned their finery for Ladies’ Day, on the third day of Royal Ascot.

The five-day event in Berkshire is expected to attract a total of 270,000 racegoers.

The flamboyant hats moved up a notch on Thursday – a day to see and be seen.

Last year, the event was limited to 12,000 spectators per day due to Covid-19 restrictions, and the previous year the event was held without any spectators.
