Lady Kitty Spencer attends Stakes Day at the Melbourne cup

Lady Kitty Spencer seems to be really enjoying her time down under. Princess Diana’s niece looked lovely as she attended Stakes Day at the Melbourne Cup, three decades after her aunt attended the event.

The 24-year-old turned heads wearing a stunning white and pink Alex Perry dress to the second day of the equestrian competition. Similar to the frock she wore to the first day of the event, the dress featured a high neck and an A-line skirt.

She accessorised her outfit with a cream and white fascinator, a small gold clutch bag and matching heels. She had kept her hair and make-up simple opting only for a touch of bronzer and a light lip gloss.

Prince William and Harry’s cousin was enjoying the warm temperatures in Australia, basking in the sun whilst chatting to other guests. Later on in the afternoon the psychology student was seen talking to Australian singer Cody Simpson. The pair giggled as they posed for photos alongside two men dressed as the Queen's royal guards.

Speaking to Daily Mail Australia about the races, she said: "Its absolutely incredible, I can't believe this whole thing is put together every year. It's such a lovely tradition, you come here and see the effort people make and the fun that people are having."

Kitty, who is the eldest daughter of Earl Spencer, has been making the most of her time down under taking in a helicopter ride and meeting local wildlife.

Posting several pictures on her Instagram page, Kitty showed off her love of animals as she cuddled a baby wombat during her visit to an Australian animal wildlife sanctuary.
