Wednesday was the second day of Royal Ascot, and we’ve got more royal jewels to enjoy!
Once again, the Queen stayed home at Windsor (and surely watched the races on TV) on Wednesday. The most senior royals in attendance at Ascot were the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
Camilla wore a lovely cream outfit and hat. She accessorized with her favorite diamond and pearl earrings and her necklace of pavé-set beads with gold spacers, layered with two other necklaces (her Kiki McDonough Apollo Necklace, and likely her Golden Kiwi Necklace).
Several of you were discussing the tie pins worn by the royal gentlemen yesterday. Here’s a slightly better look at the one Charles wore on Wednesday. I believe it’s a Prince of Wales Feathers design.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex were at Royal Ascot for the second day in a row as well.
Sophie wore sparkling hoop earrings and a necklace with a large pearl pendant. Her hat was once again at Jane Taylor design.
Edward wore another racing-themed tie. His tie pin features a royal monogram in diamonds; I think it’s the monogram of his grandfather, King George VI (GVIR).
The Princess Royal was gorgeous in green with ivory-colored accessories for the second day of the races.
She wore gold and pearl button-style earrings, her two-stranded pearl necklace, and a golden floral brooch studded with gemstones. She also wore her Jockey Club pin and a favorite pair of Team GB Olympic sunglasses.
Anne found a familiar buddy to watch the races with: Andrew Parker Bowles.
There was one more member of the extended Windsor family in attendance on day two: the Earl of Snowdon, the Queen’s nephew. No tie pin for David, but, like his royal cousins, he did wear a lovely flower in his lapel!
