Attendees adhere to a strict dress code, making it a glamorous affair where fashion takes center stage.

Queen Camilla’s Controversial Ensemble

Queen Camilla made quite an impression during the Royal Ascot, but not in the way she might have hoped. On the third day of the event, she was dressed head-to-toe in white.

Princess Eugenie’s Hat Debacle

Princess Eugenie also faced criticism for her choice of attire on day two. She opted for a crisp, white collared dress with a pink boater hat, but the combination didn’t sit well with many fashion enthusiasts.

Liz Hurley’s Floral Faux Pas

Elizabeth Hurley’s outfit on day three, a white lace dress with floral embroidery, was another hot topic. While the dress itself was delicate and feminine, her choice of headpiece was widely panned. She sported a large fascinator with a blush-pink flower.
