Today, I went along with a few friends from Cass to the Royal Ascot. The Queen attends the races (Windsor Castle is very nearby) and I saw she and Prince Phillip ambling in within a horse-drawn carriage. Wow! I was even able to snap a photo of them, albeit quite cropped and zoomed so that you can make them out…


Otherwise, the day was a bit overcast with a cool, intermitent drizzle. But the weather didn’t put a damper on our cultural experience. Called Ladies’ Day, I was expecting a crowd of very refined, elegant and graceful individuals. While this did hold true for my classmates, the stereotype didn’t transfer to the rest of the crowd. Just goes to show that you can dress folks up, but…Regardless, we enjoyed the day and I SAW THE QUEEN!
