    The Queen's quick outfit change has left many punters stumped and bookmakers smiling.

    Her Majesty wore blue at the State Opening of Parliament but by the time she arived at Royal Ascot, she had changed into yellow.

    William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said his betting firm had taken just 13 bets on yellow.

    He added: "After seeing the Queen wear a blue hat for her speech in parliament, many punters expected her to remain in her clothing for Royal Ascot.

    "However, they were left disappointed when she was seen in her procession in a yellow hat, the second favourite in our betting."
