The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in a stunning pale blue dress for the first day of Royal Ascot on Tuesday (18 June).

Kate chose an embellished midi dress with mesh and bow detailing by designer Ellie Saab for the occasion at Ascot Racecourse.

She finished off her outfit with a striking hat, complete with floral detailing, and opted for on-trend metallic accessories, including silver heels and a small clutch.

And it looks as if the royals may have exchanged style notes before their day at the races, as there was a bit of a colour theme going on...

The Queen was wearing a pale blue ensemble to match Kate's, also choosing a hat with floral embellishment to complete her look.

And her granddaughters, Zara Tindall, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, also all chose blue as their go-to hue for the event.

Zara completed her floral dress with a pale blue hat that looked very similar to Kate's, while Beatrice chose a shade of cornflower for her lace dress, and Eugenie favoured turquoise.

Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cornwall opted for a pale pink ensemble for day one of the five-day annual horse racing event.

This is the second day in a row that Camilla has worn the hue, after appearing in a similar shade for the Order of the Garter service on Monday (17 June)
