The Royal Ascot 2019 kicks off today, Tuesday June 18 and ends on Saturday, June 22.

And one of the main events of the whole week is the glamorous Ladies Day.

When is Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot 2019?

This year Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot falls on Thursday, June 20.

The Royal Ascot explains on its website: “Thursday is vibrant, celebratory and steeped in tradition being the home of the famed Gold Cup.

“As the showpiece event of Royal Ascot week, it is the world’s premier race for horses that are specialists over long distances.

“Ascot’s oldest surviving race, the Gold Cup has provided some of the Royal Meeting’s greatest moments including Her Majesty The Queen’s filly Estimate, who, in 2013, was the first winning horse of the Gold Cup ever by a reigning monarch.”

Ladies Day is also when the prestigious Gold Cup is also held.

The main event will begin at 4.20pm, with a £500,000 prize fund.
