    The British royal family is flocking to Ascot for the annual horse-racing competition. Royal Ascot is a spectacle, not just for the racing but for the fashion display. King Charles and Queen Camilla subtly coordinated elegant looks, while Prince William opted for a dapper ensemble. 

    For the British elite, Royal Ascot is the pinnacle of the social calendar in the summer.

    The annual five-day horse-racing event, which started on Tuesday this year and is wrapping up on Saturday, is nothing short of a spectacle — not just for the competition itself but for the luxurious and sometimes wild spectator fashion.

    The dress code depends on the type of enclosure Royal Ascot-goers have access to, but a rule of thumb is the more exclusive the area, the more elaborate the outfits are.

    Members of the royal family — who have been attending Royal Ascot since its founding in 1711 — are typically spotted in the royal enclosure, where men sport morning suits, and women accessorize elegant summer dresses with striking fascinators and hats.

    Royals like Prince William, King Charles III, Queen Camilla, and Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice have been spotted dressed to the nines at Royal Ascot 2024. Here are all the outfits they wore.

    Charles, 75, wore a light-gray morning suit layered over a pale-yellow waistcoat and a striped collared shirt topped off with a black top hat. The king completed his look with a blue tie and pocket square, subtly coordinating with his date, Camilla, 76.

    For her Royal Ascot day one ensemble, Camilla opted for a royal-blue coat and dress by Fiona Clare, accessorized with a brooch, a white clutch, gloves, and, of course, an eye-catching blue summer hat designed by veteran British milliner and go-to hat designer for the royals, Philip Treacy.

    Camilla made a splash the following day when she arrived at the races solo and wearing Dior. Queen Camilla attends day two of Royal Ascot 2024 on June 19, 2024.

    Camilla’s day two ensemble consisted of a deep-blue long-sleeved Dior dress with lace detailing down the bodice and a pleated skirt.

    According to WWD, she completed her look with a Dior handbag, a layered blue Philip Treacy hat, and a dazzling diamond-and-turquoise brooch that her late mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II, wore on a royal tour of Malta in 2015.

    As is custom, he paired his look with a black top hat.

    Meanwhile, Camilla opted for an all-white ensemble, complete with an emerald brooch. Queen Camilla attends day three of Royal Ascot on June 20, 2024.

    On Thursday, Camilla chose her most summery attire of the week: a white long-sleeved wrap dress and a coordinating white hat with a large floral appliqué.

    She paired her dress with a matching handbag and added a pop of color with the Ladies of India brooch, a piece of emerald-and-diamond jewelry gifted to Queen Mary in the early 1900s, according to the Court Jeweller.

    Following the dress code to a tee, William, 41, arrived in a black morning suit jacket, gray pants, and a black top hat. He paired it with a double-breasted waistcoat layered over a collared shirt and a blue patterned tie.

    Although he arrived without Kate Middleton, who is undergoing cancer treatment but plans to attend several royal engagements throughout the summer, William wasn’t alone at the races. Aside from the company of his royal family members, he was photographed smiling and chatting with his in-laws, Michael and Carole Middleton.
