After the State Opening of Parliament wrapped up, the Queen headed back to join the rest of the royals for the second day of this year's Royal Ascot races. Here's a look at the jewels (and hats!) they wore.

The Queen made a quick change between the morning's engagement and the races, swapping out her blue ensemble for a bright yellow one. She also changed brooches, switching out the Cullinan V Brooch for the Flame Lily Brooch.

Because Prince Philip is currently in the hospital, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall accompanied the Queen to Ascot. Camilla wore her diamond and pearl earrings with her pearl necklace with the large diamond clasp.

The Princess Royal was in front of the cameras a bit more today; she wore a pearl necklace with her gold, diamond, and sapphire jewelry suite. The earrings from the set also feature pearls.



I wish I had better photos that I can legally share with you of the Countess of Wessex, who wore a pretty pink hat and dress for Day 2, but the photo agencies appear to be on a Sophie Strike this week! (Ditto the Duchess of Gloucester, who also attended today.) Above, you can see that she accessorized with a pair of glittering earrings.

Princess Michael of Kent went for lots of big pieces again today: large, multi-colored pearls, oversized pearl button earrings, an unusual brooch, and a large cuff bracelet.
