The Royal Ascot was canceled last year because of the pandemic, but the Duchess of Cornwall made up for it this year with her gorgeous ensemble.


Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Prince Charles of Wales stepped out in their finery for the first day of the Royal Ascot this month, along with other members of the royal family.

The Duchess looked particularly put together as she wore a striped blue coat and a matching hat. She finished off her elegant blue-toned look with a mask made in the same fabric as her striped ensemble.

Last year, the Royal Ascot was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. This year it continued with a reduced number of attendees and, of course, the requirement of wearing a face mask.

All of the royal family in attendance wore face masks. Prince Charles opted to wear a black mask that had a white border. It matched his black top hat, which went well with his gray suit.


Prince Charles was joined by his younger brother, Prince Edward, and his beautiful wife, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, who opted to wear a floor-length dusty pink dress and matching hat.

His sister, Princess Anne was in blue. She wore a dark blue knee-length dress with a coat and matching shawl in a floral pattern. Her hat was in the same purplish-blue hue.

Princess Anne's daughter Zara and her husband Michael Tindall also joined in on the day of fun. The couple regularly attends the event and even dressed up in their Royal Ascot attire last year to watch the events from their home.

Her Majesty the Queen, a known horse lover, did not attend the first day for good reason. She hosted her first in-person meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic with the Australian Prime Minister, Scott Morrison, at Windsor Castle


However, she will most likely watch the Royal Ascot on TV, as she did last year. The monarch is likely to attend the event later this week as her horse, King's Lynn, ran on Tuesday in the King's Stand Stakes.

The royal family will definitely have a great time out enjoying the Royal Ascot this week. The horse show comes after Camilla and Prince Charles's busy week as they had multiple public engagements and meetings.


However, they also had a lovely night out. They visited the Royal Opera to watch " Balanchine and Robbins," performed by The Royal Ballet. The couple's Instagram page shared photos of the event.

The pair has also been busy with events surrounding the G7 summit this month. Prince Charles' son, Prince William, and daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton, joined them for the G7 reception.
