Holly Willoughby led the fashion pack in a pretty pink dress as she arrived at Berkshire Racecourse in the sunshine for the second day of racing.

As well as being one of the highlights of the sporting calendar, Royal Ascot is a social occasion and an opportunity to dress to impress.

Thousands of guests donned their best summer dresses and extravagant hats while others wore top hats and tails or three-piece suits.

They all gathered to cheer for some of the best horses and jockeys from around the world.

Royal Ascot was held behind closed doors in 2020 and limited racegoers were admitted last year after it was selected to take part in a research program into Covid events.

Approximately 400 helicopters and 1,000 limousines will arrive at Royal Ascot with an average of 60,000 racegoers per day.

And once guests are there, they are assembled by 350 chefs serving 35,000 spears of English asparagus, more than 10,000 steaks, 8,000 Cornish crabs, 7,000 racks of English lamb, 5,000kg of salmon and 3,500 fresh lobsters throughout the week.
