The sisters chose bold colours for the second day at the races.

They were criticised for their race-day outfits earlier in the week, but Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have made a triumphant return to Royal Ascot with other members of the royal family.

In stark contrast to their black and white frocks from Tuesday, the young royals chose bright shades of blue and red to make their mark on Ladies’ Day at the prestigious racing event.

Princess Beatrice was relaxed in a blue-and-black number with her hair styled in a delicate fishtail braid.

She paired her dress with a sweeping black-and-white hat and silver-capped stilettos.
