|Have you heard about the event called Royal Ascot in the UK? It is a very famous sporting and social event which started in 1711. If you have seen the film "My Fair Lady", you may know about it from that. People dress up in lovely clothes and hats, and go to a place called Ascot (not far from London) to watch horseracing. Queen Elizabeth the Second (the British Queen) goes there every year. Actually, she owns the racecourse and many racing horses too.
Anyway, this event is on from 17th June until 21st June 2003. I went there on the first day and took some pictures. If you want to see them, look at this web page:
