The 70-year-old royal's smart dress fell to just below the knee as per the strict Ascot dress code, and boasted button detailing on the bodice and 80s inspired puff sleeves.

Princess Anne kept her accessories simple, donning cream court heels and a chic matching bag, setting the look off with a pair of white gloves.

Anne has not only had a successful equestrian career, but was the first member of the royal family to compete in the Olympics, riding the Queen's horse, Goodwill, in Eventing at the 1976 Games in Montreal.

The previous day, Princess Anne sported an equally eye-catching ensemble to attend the races. She donned a smart navy dress paired with an embroidered boxy jacket and matching hat. Impeccable!

Ascot is known for its strict dress code – no outfits above the knee, strapless dresses are a big fashion faux pas and hats or fascinators are a must.

No one does Ascot style better than the royal family, however, who are used to adhering to similar fashion on a daily basis.
