Princess Anne looked timeless in cream to kick off Royal Ascot on Tuesday

This year, Royal Ascot runs from Tuesday 14th to Saturday 18th June and promises another year of stunning dresses, eye-catching hats and spectacular horse racing.

Our favorite royal ladies always take the lead in the style stakes, with riding enthusiasts Zara Tindal and the Countess of Wessex usually present, without speaking Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice of York.

The prestigious event is known for its strict dress code – no above-the-knee outfits, strapless dresses are a big no-no and hats or fascinators are a must.

Because of her persistent mobility issues, the Queen misses the first day of Royal Ascot this year, but racing fans are hoping to see Her Majesty in the royal box as the week progresses.

Just be sure to check the strict dress code rules, especially in the royal enclosure. Hats must be worn, however, a headgear with a solid base at least four inches in diameter is acceptable as an alternative to a hat. Fascinators are not permitted.
