A Royal Marathon

England's royal ladies have been on a virtual treadmill of events over the last 10 days, from the Derby, to Trooping the Color, to the thanksgiving for Prince Philip's 90th birthday, to the Garter Ceremony. With Ascot just around the corner, they are keeping photographers and royal watchers busy with hats and dresses in every hue.

During the Queen's official birthday celebrations/Trooping the Colour, more than 50 members of the royal family gathered on the balcony, including (from left) Lady Frederidk Windsor, The Duchess and Duke of Cambridge, The Countess and Earl of Wessex with their daughter Lady Louise Windsor, Timothy Lawrence, The Princess Royal, Queen Elizabeth, Prince Harry, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of York, The Duchess of Cornwall and The Prince of Wales.

The Queen wore baby blue to give thanks for her husband's longevity, while Prince William made sure the driving rain didn't ruin his bride's periwinkle coat.
