Queen Elizabeth II stood out wearing a mint coat over a floral dress. She was seen arriving at the races on the last day of the event, which took place today.

She recycled her favourite black leather shoes which have a gold chain across the front.

The footwear is by Anello & Davide of Kensington and cost around £1,000.

Royal Ascot 2021: Guests stun in bold hats for day four – giant flower hat leads

Royal Ascot guests showed up with umbrellas at the track today with some matching their hats to them. The five-day event has seen thousands of guests walk through its doors as lockdown restrictions continue to ease.

One racegoer wore a bright pink boater hat with pieces of mesh fabric coming out from either side of the hat to create a beautiful shape.

It matched the umbrella and dress perfectly.

She matched the coat to a blue striped face mask which she held in front of her face.


The royal opted to keep her legs bare and wore a pair of cream pumps with a notable black toe cap.

Camilla has worn the heels on many occasions and they are thought to be by designer Chanel.

She held a light grey leather clutch bag in her left hand.

In line with the Royal Ascot dress code, Camilla styled her look with a hat.
