Ha! I wish!
But, I did see her while experiencing something I’d consider quintessentially British, the Royal Ascot. My friend Carrie and I joined in with a bus full of other ladies in large hats and fancy dresses and made the trek from Harrogate to London. We spent several hours at the gorgeous Henley-on-Thames before getting a good night’s sleep and gearing up for the big day (incidentally, Ladies Day).
It was such fun! The hats were a massive highlight, in addition to the Royal Procession. We watched each of the 6 races from a different vantage point, including the grandstand and as close to the track as we could get! I called my dad and we picked a horse to bet on in the Gold Cup (note: we lost). I drank (responsibly!). I laughed and smiled and watched and listened.
And I’ll definitely go back!
