The royals were out in full force on Tuesday for one of the biggest events of the year: the Royal Ascot races. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were joined by Princess Anne, Prince Edward and wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall, who was accompanied by husband Mike Tindall. The Queen, Prince William and Catherine were missing from the event.

For the fashion-clad outing, Camilla wore a custom-made pastel-blue striped coat by British fashion designer Bruce Oldfield, with matching face mask and a Philip Treacy hat. Princess Anne looked extremely elegant in a royal-blue ensemble by Shibumi, a designer based in Gloucestershire. The outfit consisted of a fitted dress and a patterned coat with a matching scarf. She finished off the look with a matching blue hat and shoes and her trademark sunglasses.

Meanwhile, Sophie looked stunning in a blush-pink gown by London-based designer ARoss Girl X Soler, and a Jane Taylor hat in the same colour. The dress featured long sleeves and was cinched in at the waist with a sash. She wore her hair in a sophisticated up-do and accessorised with a nude-toned clutch and shoes.

Zara, 40, who recently welcomed a baby boy into the world, stepped out in a cream-and-black polka-dot dress by Me+Em. She teamed the outfit with a floral hat, a matching clutch and heels, and wore her hair up in an elegant bun. Husband Mike looked dapper in a traditional morning suit and top hat.

Mike announced the exciting baby news on his podcast The Good, The Bad & The Rugby, revealing the little tot arrived on Sunday, March 21, and that his entrance into the world took them by surprise.

The proud new dad revealed his son, named Lucas Philip Tindall, was born at the family’s home at the royal Gatcombe estate in Gloucestershire, and that one of Zara’s friends helped deliver him. Lucas’ middle name is a tribute to his late great-grandfather Prince Philip, who passed away in early April. The couple are already parents to seven-year-old Mia and two-year-old Lena.
