THE QUEEN is set to make her customary appearance at Royal Ascot on Tuesday – but it’s not her horses that are causing a betting frenzy.
One question above all others is of major interest to punters: what colour hat will she wear?

Will The Queen be at Royal Ascot?
It is not yet clear whether The Queen will attend every day of Royal Ascot.
She has missed the meeting only once previously in her 69-year reign.
That came last year when the whole event took place behind closed doors due to Covid.
The customary royal procession held before each day’s racing will not take place this year.
