Royal Ascot is one of the most up-to-the-minute events on the racing calendar

Thousands of people dressed to the nines descended on the Berkshire racecourse for the fifth and final day of the 2022 extravaganza.

Glamourous attendees wore their best summer frocks, while others wore top hats and tails or three-piece suits, clearly ready to enjoy the sunshine.

Stilettos and eye-catching fascinators are also popular among partygoers.

While some racegoers have dressed down to their underwear, others appear to be going all out to stand out in brighter, wackier outfits.

However, everyone is coming together to support some of the best horses and riders.

In 2020, Royal Ascot was held behind closed doors, and last year, a limited number of racegoers were admitted after it was chosen to participate in a Covid event research programme.

With an average of 60,000 racegoers per day, 400 helicopters and 1,000 limousines will descend on Royal Ascot.

Guests will enjoy fine dining curated by 350 chefs throughout the week, including 35,000 spears of English asparagus, more than 10,000 steaks, 8,000 Cornish crabs, 7,000 rumps of English lamb, 5,000kg of salmon, and 3,500 fresh lobsters.

In addition, the Royal Meeting will serve over a quarter-million finger sandwiches, 240,000 hand-crafted cakes, 120,000 buttermilk scones, 110,000 cups of tea, and 7,000 punnets of mixed berries.
