As the royal family stepped out for Ascot this weekend, everyone was eagerly waiting to see which designers the famous British family would choose to watch the racing in the Royal Enclosure. The Duchess of Cambridge opted for one of her favourite British designers, Alexander McQueen. Creative Director of the brand Sarah Burton also famously designed her wedding dress in 2011 and she recently wore one of her designs in a perfect shade of pink to the Trooping of the Colour ceremony last weekend.
Princess Beatrice opted for a blue and black dress and accessorised it with a little black Chanel bag, which complimented her look and finished it off nicely. Her sister Eugenie wore a chic red dress by Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and paired it with a starfish navy clutch bag by Wilbur and Gussie, who’s bags are all sampled and crafted in the United Kingdom.
The Queen arrived on Ladies’ Day in pink, which was the colour that was backed by many race goers as her likely colour of choice. She wore a black bag by British brand Launer to complete her ensemble.
Whilst the royals chose their favourite designers to wear for Ladies’ Day, there was a vast range of stunning bags to be seen around on the day. Below are two of our favourite bags spotted on the day.
