Epsom Derby

The Queen, accompanied by other members of the Royal Family, attended Investec Derby Day at Epsom Downs Racecourse.
For the traditional kick off to the busiest month in her year, The Queen opted for an old brooch standby, the Frosted Sunflower. Surprisingly for a brooch that usually tops the favorites list at the end of the year, this is only its second outing in 2015. And to tell you the truth, I haven't missed it one bit.
She also transferred it to her dress after taking off her coat...not that the brooch is what you're looking at in this photo.

Accompanying Her Maj and The Duke of Edinburgh for the day:

If you had any doubts that Princess Michael is coordinating her eye patch to her outfits, well, here you go. She's doing quite a job of accessorizing to distract from her surgery recovery, though. That is one impressive jabot pin!

After my own heart with her purple purse and sporting an interesting set of blue jewels, Princess Alexandra of Kent came along for the ride too.

UPDATE: Princess Haya was present with the Dubai racing crew and Sheikh Mohammed.

I usually like her racing style...but this just makes me hope she's saving the best for Ascot.
