KATE MIDDLETON, the Duchess of Cambridge, attended the first day of Royal Ascot 2019 today. Prince William’s wife looked elegant in blue when she arrived in a carriage with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and their wives Prince William and Prince Charles.
Kate Middleton, 37, wore a shade similar to the queen, who chose a lilac color for the first day of Royal Ascot 2019. The Duchess of Cambridge rode to the Royal Enclosure alongside Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who looked summery in the peach . Kate chose a wide-brimmed hat with a large flower by Philip Treacy to complement her outfit. A pair of large aquamarine earrings could be seen in her ears, and she was wearing her long brown locks in a low bun.
Kate’s dress, made by Elie Saab, had a translucent lace detail at the top, with a simple cami under the overlay.
The long skirt fell down to Kate’s ankles and got a romantic edge with a dotted net that sparkled in daylight.
Mama-of-three Kate kept her makeup simple and opted for a wave of peach extinguisher, mascara and naked lips.
Blue tones were popular with today’s royal family, with Kate, the Queen, Zara Tindall, and Princess Beatrice all opting for shade.
This is unusual for the royals, who usually ensure that each member does not clash, especially with the queen.
European Queen Maxima was also present and she fitted Camilla in a peach color.
What is the Royal Ascot dress code?
The Royal Ascot dress code is known as strictly implemented and is one of the tightest in the racing world.
Royal Ascot produces a detailed guideline for guests every year to check that there are no style blunders.
The strictest rules apply in the Royal Enclosure, where ladies must wear dresses or skirts that fall just above the knee or longer.
Belts must be an inch or larger, with strapless, halter neck and spaghetti straps prohibited. Midriffs may also not be shown.
Pantsuits are allowed, but they must be the full length of the leg and the matching material and the correct color.
The most important thing is that hats must be worn, although headgear with a firm four-inch base is allowed. Fascinators are not allowed.
Men must wear a black or gray morning dress with a vest, tie, top hat and black shoes worn with socks.
This dress code is not only followed by guests, but also by members of the royal family who are present.
The Queen Anne housing and the Village housing are slightly more relaxed, with fascinators allowed, and dresses or tops with thin straps allowed.
