Today, the Princess of Wales, 41, attended the third day of the annual races in Berkshire. Princess Catherine arrived on a horse-drawn carriage during the Royal Procession, and she was accompanied by her husband, Prince William, along with Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Bystanders couldn’t take their eyes off the princess’s bright right dress, which stood out against the sea of neutrals. The monochrome outfit was designed by Alexander McQueen, and it featured long sleeves, a belted waist, a V-neckline and a midi-length hem.

The royal has been a longtime wearer of Alexander McQueen. Not only does she frequent the designer on a regular basis, but she also wore an Alexander McQueen dress on her wedding day.

Princess Catherine accessorized the look with matching accessories, including a fascinator by Philip Treacy, a clutch and pumps (per usual). The Princess of Wales styled her hair in a voluminous low bun, and she added statement earrings for additional wow-factor.

The 2023 Royal Ascot will take place over the course of four days, beginning on June 20 and ending on June 24. The royal fam will likely reappear during tomorrow’s festivities, so we’ll be on the lookout for photos.

Who knows, maybe Prince William and Princess Catherine will bring their three kids—Prince George (9), Princess Charlotte (8) and Prince Louis (5)—for a fun Saturday outing.
