Queen is elegant in pigeon gray, while Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall match green with Royal Ascot

The queen today broke with her royal blue tradition when she wore a beautiful dove-gray coat and floral silk dress with accents of lemon yellow on Ladies & Day on Ascot.

The prince, 93, arrived before the afternoon of racing in an open car with her son Prince Andrew, Duke of York, 59, daughter Princess Anne, 69, and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

After wearing traditional light blue for the last two days of the meeting, Queen Elizabeth II opted for a departure from her usual bright color palette and completed her look with a pleated hat with blue flowers and a striking flower brooch with complimenting yellow diamonds, which was a gift from the Sultan of Oman.

She coordinated perfectly with her daughter, the Princess Royal, who looked elegant in a light green ensemble with a subtle nod to the yellow theme of her mother in her accessories.

They were followed in the second carriage by Princess Eugenie, 29, who wore a beautiful forest-green dress with a hat from the MacLaren bundle with a striking rotating spring.

The monarch was accompanied by Mr. James Fellowes, who founded the Bridge of Hope charity initiative, which helps people who have fallen from the career ladder, and the viscount and viscount Brookeborough.

The third and last carriage wore a grinning Zara and Mike Tindall, with the queen's granddaughter beautifully in a blue-green dress by Claire Mischevani and a complimenting carved hat by London fashionist Juliette Botterill.

They were accompanied by Peter and Autumn Phillips, who looked dazzling in a floral dress by Claire Mischevani and an ivory cocktail hat from Bee Smith.

With the hint in the name, Royal Ascot is hugely popular with the monarchy and Her Majesty has participated every year since the rise of the throne – and this year was no exception.

After being forced to beat a brolly yesterday, the queen will have been relieved that the heavy rain has cleared up and been replaced by glorious sunshine.

Royal Ascot Ladies Day is one of the most glamorous occasions in the British social calendar and racegoers certainly did not disappoint when they descended this morning on the Berkshire racecourse for the third day of the meeting.

Newlywed Lady Gabriella Windsor, who had made the knot at Windsor Castle last month, was among the controversial faces spotted in the crowd when she arrived on the arm of the new husband Thomas Kingston.

Model Abbey Clancy, who was present at her footballing husband Peter Crouch, led the glamor in a rugged midi dress, while Judy Murray opted for a classic blue fur dress.

Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer and Victoria actress Nell Hudson were also on hand to participate in the fun at the racing festival.

The full spectrum of racing day style was on display, with many in the mood to take fashion risks, especially when it came to elaborate headwear.

Many revelers held their camera phones up to catch a glimpse of the royal family as they entered the Berkshire racecourse with a carriage

As expected, hats where the focus of many racegoers outfits, with flowers, feathers and beads can all be seen.

A woman went for a gravity-defying, self-flowing teapot that hung over a stream of flowers pouring into her hat.

Even animals came into action – and a well-behaved dog was seen with a small top hat on its head.

Visitors to the Royal and Queen Anne stays must adhere to a strict dress code that does not allow bare midriffs or strapless dresses, but for guests in the Windsor and other enclosures the rules are more relaxed.

The term Ladies Day was first used in 1823 when an anonymous poet described the Thursday of the annual meeting as & # 39; Ladies & # 39; Day … when the women, just like angels, look cute divine. & # 39;
