For a day of races in 2019, Beatrice chose a stunning pastel blue lace dress by Maje and teamed it with a Bundle MacLaren hat as she sat in the royal box, where she was a guest of her grandmother the Queen for the first day of the famous Berkshire racing meet, which usually attracts around 300,000 racegoers over its five-day run.
