Royal fashionistas open Ascot

Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and Queen Elizabeth opened the first day of the Royal Ascot horseraces in England on June 17, 2014 wearing classic silhouettes, pastels and neutral colors. Princess Eugenie lead the royal fashion parade holding Princess Beatrice’s hand (Her older sister) in a cool neutral taupe colored (Belted at the waist) dress coat, her rosette featured as an accent on her hat added a tiny touch of romance, accessorized with matching colored sling-back Mary Jane shoes, studded hand held clutch and a demure smile.

Eugenie is quietly leading by her choice of subdued colors, confident and serene like unflappable stature all the while hopefully having fun along the way. Princess Beatrice dressed herself up in a classic teal blue lace shift dress with a bolder approach to her accessories. Beatrice chose a gold cuff bracelet with chunky blue stone as a centerpiece, matching gold hand clutch, a disc like brim hat and lavish flower printed pump shoe.

Dailymail.co.uk fashion reporter Bianca London wrote, "They may be two of the world's most famous sisters but Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are rarely pictured together. However, the daughters of Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, put on a united front today as they joined the rest of the Royal family at Ascot. Beatrice wore an elegant teal dress by British designer Suzannah and a hat by top milliner Sarah Cant and Eugenie looked fresh and pretty in a neat beige trench coat and a hat by one of her favourite milliners, Nerida Fraiman."

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and her mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth both dressed completely plain in pastels with no noticeable fanfare to their usual royal fashion finesse. Prince Charles chose to wear a very dapper three-piece grey tuxedo with tails and Prince Harry arrived to escort his grandmother Queen Elizabeth around in his usual tuxedo with tails and yellow tuxedo vest.

Hello Magazine staff fashion reporter wrote, "Greeted by huge cheers, it was the first time the Prince has arrived to the annual event with his grandmother, and the pair waved to the royal watchers as the Royal Procession made its way through the Berkshire racecourse."
