Many racegoers chose to wear red, white and blue in celebration of the jubilee year at this year's Royal Ascot races.
Others were seen wearing Union Jack hats - and some even bird cages in the usual array of weird and wacky outfits.
The racecourse has been decorated with four kilometres of bunting this year to add to the occasion.
Over the week, 80,000 Union Jack flags are being handed out to racegoers watching the royal procession.
Royal Ascot has honoured the Queen by renaming a race to mark the monarch's 60-year reign.
