    I am always a big fan of Zara Tindells style choices. But something just does not add up. The colour of her blouse and hat, the style of the suite is not feminine. For me the winner is Eugenie.

      Yes, Eugenie looks very nice. I also like Princess Anne's coat. Zara T. looks ridiculous.

    3. I agree with you Anon 13: 09.
      To me Zara is normally one of the best dressed royals but not on this occasion.
      Her suit looks like something a business woman would wear to work and the hat, blouse and bag don't match.
      A rare miss from Zara .

    Anne looks like she is dressed for winter and Eugenie for Spring, but they are my best two here. Both have nice looking coats. I like Zara's hat on its own, but not her suit - too masculine.
    Interesting to see Andrew Parker-Bowles still closely connected to the royal family - once through his ex-wife (now Queen), and secondly through his ex-girlfriend.

    1. Yes, it appears Andrew Parker-Bowles has got good contacts to help him keep a foot in both camps. 😁

  3. Dans un style choisi pour montrer un avant-goût de printemps, Eugénie a ma préférence !

    This seems like a quintessentially British event. I think Anne looks very good - elegant and immaculate. To me, Zara’s more whimsical hat seems incongruous with her rather severe suit. I like what I can see of her purse.

      That's the word I was looking for, for Zara's hat and her outfit - incongruous. Agreed.

    3. Hello Royal Watcher.
      Yes, this event is part of a centuries-old racing tradition in England.
      Since 2018, Ladies Day has been replaced by “Style Wednesday” to be gender-neutral.
      Must keep up with the times .....no?

      Agree, I love princess Anne’s tassel boots !!

  6. All the ladies look great, dressing for our unpredictable weather - Zara`s hat does not suit her suit in style and the colour should match her blouse/ shoes etc. (IMO).

    This time Queen Camilla is wearing a beautiful coat. Normal shoulder width, no big shoulder pads. She looks so much better. Of course if you add an awful hat it ruins all the effort. Princess Anne wears probably a coat that is at least 40 or 50 years old. Too much beige too, it washes he out. She needs some color. I love Zara Tindall's striped suit. These white striped suits, jackets, pants, skirts even dresses are very fashionable now. At least for women. I don't know if it is fashionable again for men too. I remember it was in the late 60-tees. Unfortunately Zara should have worn another top and certainly another hat with this suit. I suggest a beautiful fedora like Princess Eugenie is wearing, not white of course but maybe light grey or navy and a white silk shirt underneath the jacket and a navy or black handbag. Princess Eugenie looks lovely in her white coat and hat but, although the boots are nice they don't match the coat and hat. If they had been in fine leather and the color of her bag matched the color of the boots, I think it could have worked. Jack Brooksbank's suits are always screaming to be ironed properly.

  8. I have seen people complain about Camilla’s fur hats. But honestly, living in the snowy cold northern US, I would wear that hat EVERYWHERE. So, if Camilla is looking for someone to donate it to….

    Where are all the trolls who complain about non working British royals being featured on this site?

    Zara Tindall´s combination of pin stripe suit and cocktail hat is the weirdest I have seen in a long time. Suit is great! A Fedora and a proper shirt would have made a great difference. Eugene looks good in winter white.

  11. Sarah’s business style suit, no, not for a day at the races.
    Princess Anne is looking good in ‘Princess Anne’ mode.
    Would love to know the fashion house behind her coat.
    Camilla’s hat doesn’t do her any favours.
    The Cheltenham charity shop could try to find a new home for it.
    A bit off Topic but just for one minute.
    Give a thought for the horses who have died in this famous steeplechase.
    Even with all the love, care and veterinary expertise, 2 horses have already died since the start of the races this week (2024).
    Since 2000, it is said that 76 of these magnificent animals have died whilst participating in this famous event.

      A heartbreaking statistic. I don’t understand how people can still go on and be so demonstrative about something as cruel as these races.

    5. Yes Petra, the statistics are sad.
      There's been demonstrations against steeplechasing and jump racing but they get squashed very quickly.
      The horses who participate in these competitions are magnificent, throughbred animals.
      There is a high risk of accidents.
      The horses who have to be put down are done so in a humanely way.
      All the respect in the world for these magnificent animals doesn’t remove the risk factor.
      It is one of the sports of kings.
      For most of us, the main interest is to see the Who’s Who dressed up to the nines.

      Thank you Deadeggs. We should be able to admire royals and aristocracy dressing up without killing these wonderful horses. They could replace them with charity events for wild life with a dress code. How about that? Putting their status and money into a generous, heartwarming cause? The Cheltenham Annual Charity Event. With a dress up Wednesday.

    Zara no. Like Camillas green coat. Hope the hat is fake. Don't know what to say about it...so I'm gonna skip. Eugenie looks lovely. What's with the brits and hats. Just weird.

    Great to see so many members of the family out. Eugenie looks lovely and so does Anne. I like Camillas coat, but not the hat. Time to get a new one. I think Zaras suit would have looked better with a white top and no hat. Something is not going together. css

    Eugenie and Princess Anne look great! I love Eugenie's outfit--her white coat paired with the boots and hat are fabulous. Princess Anne is classic and elegant and her hat adds that extra dash of style. Love, love, love Queen Camilla's green coat! Fabulous color for her. I happen to like her hat--she's worn it for years and she wears it well. I can see that maybe the hat is a bit low on her head today but I still like it. Zara...the parts are good but the combination is totally out of sync. The hat doesn't match anything but a Trilby style or Fedora style hat would have been perfect, the suit is severe and could be great if the jacket was a bit restyled as its too long, adding the red top is a good look for a pop of color but the severity of the suit needs something different different--maybe a white blouse would have been a better choice. I always love Zara's style but this whole outfit is a fail for me.

    Queen Camilla has trully made her role her own. She looks great. I particularly like Princess Anne's ensemble - if she were my mum, we would be sharing that coat.
    Zara Tindall looks gorgeous, as she always does. Princess Eugenie appears to have slimmed down, she looks lovely.
