It’s one of the most famous races in the world, and nothing was going to keep patrons from attending what is arguably the most British activity ever – Royal Ascot.
Also known as watching horses race while drinking champagne and wearing fancy hats.
Day one saw a downpour of UK proportions come down upon racegoers, who were decked out in their Ascot finest.

The whole day was very British, from the rain to the reactions.
- “F***ing British weather.”
2. “Feeling quite patriotic, actually.”
3. “This is just like in the movies! Is Prince Harry coming in for a snog?”
