Princess Kate opted for a white lace Alexander McQueen dress with a bespoke fascinator for the first day of Royal Ascot on Tuesday. The classic look channeled Audrey Hepburn's memorable style in My Fair Lady.
The event also has a strict dress code. Ladies are kindly reminded that formal daywear is a requirement. Hats are also required. Dresses and skirts should be of modest length defined as falling just above the knee or longer. Strapless, off the shoulder, halter neck and spaghetti straps are not permitted.
Soon after the royals arrived in the Parade Ring, they led the racegoers in observing a minute of silence to honor the victims and families affected by the recent tragedy of the Grenfell Tower, and the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London.
