Having gone for blue on the opening day Her Majesty was expected to switch things up and go for a different colour on the second day of this famous racing meeting, with pink proving to be a very popular choice with punters.

She came to the bookies’ rescue though by going with blue for the second day running, but Ladbrokes believes it is only a matter of time before she does turn up at Royal Ascot wearing pink and at 2/1 the firm thinks that day could be Thursday.

The Queen is 3/1 to go for a green hat and 6/1 so settle for purple, while it is 16/1 that she completes the hat-trick and again goes with blue for the third day of the meeting.

“Nobody expected Her Majesty to wear another blue hat with all money going on pink,” Ladbrokes’ Nicola McGeady told Bettingpro.com. “We don’t expect another blue hat tomorrow, with punters going in again on pink.”
