A strict dress code that outlaws bare midriffs and miniskirts is to be enforced during Royal Ascot with the backing of the Queen.

Want a pass for Royal Ascot? Easy, buy lunch
Horse racing's class of 2007 was full of quality
For centuries, admission to the Royal Enclosure during the race meeting was a statement of belonging to the social elite.

This year, just in case any newcomers were in doubt of how exclusive the honour is, those who transgress the code will be turned away on the orders of Her Majesty's representative, the Duke of Devonshire.

When I attend the Royal Ascot this year I will try not to fart too loudly in front of Her Majesty.
