Royals were among the 12,000 people allowed to attend – but there was one noticeable absence with the Queen

The annual Royal Ascot got underway yesterday, following a hiatus last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

And despite the Queen being unable to attend proceedings, senior royals came out in force to enjoy the event.

It was a glorious sunny day, with Champagne and Pimms flowing in abundance as 12,000 guests were permitted to attend as part of the Government’s test event programme.

Prince Charles, Camilla, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Sophie Wessex, Zara and Mike Tindall dressed up to the nines for the prestigious event – renowned for its strict dress codes.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, chose blush for the opening day, wearing a belted long-sleeve dress, accessorised with a large pendant.

Zara opted for a cream-coloured dress with contrasting polka-dot fabric and a floral headpiece.

Mike donned a classic Ascot look in a top hat and three-piece suit with a black overcoat.
