Horse racing is popular across the world, but it’s especially popular in the United Kingdom.
In the UK, the most famous horse race is Royal Ascot. The Queen and the rest of the Royal family attend.
When posh people go to Royal Ascot, it is traditional for them to wear a designer hat or other headgear. The hats are often comical and impractical, but it’s a show of status. Members of the Royal Family and celebrities often wear crazy hats to Royal Ascot.
