Place Your Bets! What Colour Hat Will The Queen Wear on Ladies Day?

Ladies Day is the biggest day of Royal Ascot, but the real race is for punters to back the colour of the Queen’s hat.

Ladbrokes even had a visit from ‘The Queen’ this morning, after she made a pit stop to her local shop on the way to the racecourse.

Shop staff reported that ‘Her Majesty’ had a cheeky fiver on the colour blue.

The chances of Her Majesty wearing a blue hat on Ladies Day have been set at 3/1, while yellow or pink can be backed at 4/1.

With our current summer heatwave the monarch is not expected to wear darker colours, making silver, brown, or black outsiders at 12/1, 20/1 and 50/1 respectively.

And patriotic punters can even get 500/1 odds on Her Majesty turning up in a Union Jack-themed hat.

“Last year the Queen wore an elegant orange on Ladies Day, but many Brits believe she’ll be sporting a summery blue this time around,” said Ladbrokes’ Nicola McGeady.

“The colour of the Queen’s hat is one of our most popular novelty betting events, and only a handful of people know what she’ll be going for.”
