The Royal Family at Legoland Windsor Resort's famous Miniland are getting an exclusive makeover for Royal Ascot this month as award winning hat maker to Her Majesty the Queen, Rachel Trevor Morgan, creates miniature designs for seven 10cm-high regal Lego models.

 

Situated in front of Miniland's miniature recreation of BuckinghamPalace tiny models of Her Majesty the Queen, The Duchess of Cornwall, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, Zara Philips, The Duchess of Cambridge and her mother Carole Middleton – will each wear a specially created piece of headwear designed and hand made by Rachel Trevor Morgan.

Her Majesty The Queen will wear a characteristically classic and colourful straw hat in bright yellow with tiny hand painted silk flowers.  The Duchess of Cornwall's dove grey side sweeping picture hat is decorated with minute feathers swirling to form an elegant circular design whilst the Duchess of Cambridge will wear an understated yet stunning Royal Blue straw slice hat with two miniature quill feathers.  

Guests will be able to see the Miniland Royal ladies dressed in their Royal Ascot Hats until June 21.

Meanwhile, the theme park has joined forces with the RSPB to give nature a home in a specially created wildlife garden in the heart of the resort.

Featuring unique habitats made entirely from Lego bricks, the garden has been created to mark the first anniversary of the RSPB's Giving Nature a Home campaign and guests will be able to visit it throughout the year.

The resort's model makers have created six habitats from thousands of individual bricks - a frogitat, a series of hogitats (hedgehog houses) plus a bird bath and bat box - all situated in landscaped greenery complete with a pond, life sized Lego creatures and a human birdwatcher.
