Princess Eugenie gave us all a lesson on how to dress for the races on Tuesday afternoon as she attended the first day of Royal Ascot 2018. The bride-to-be – who is due to marry long-term love Jack Brooksbank at Windsor Castle on 12 October – stunned onlookers at the Berkshire-based races, wearing a dazzling dress by Osmon which she teamed with a striking hat by Emily London. She added high heel shoes by Valentino and carried a bag by M2 Malletier. She wore her brunette hair in a wavy style and flawless makeup accentuated her pretty features. The daughter of Prince Andrew – like the rest of the royal family – watched the races from the Royal Enclosure, which has its own strict dress-code, which bans spaghetti straps, halter neck dresses and even the Duchess of Sussex’s favourite neckline - the Bardot.
