Mike and Zara Tindall got dressed up to the nines at home on Tuesday morning (16 June) in celebration of the first day of Royal Ascot.

The annual horse racing event is taking place behind closed doors this year in light of the current coronavirus pandemic and will be adhering to the government's social distancing rules, but is still being broadcast on ITV for fans to enjoy from home.

In preparation for giving a live interview with ITV from their garden, the royal couple decided to don traditional race day attire – and we have to say they both looked fabulous!

Rugby star Mike shared a snap of himself and Zara posing outside in all their finery, writing in the accompanying caption: "When it’s day 1 of Royal Ascot and you have nothing else on!!! @itvracing #wishiwasthere."

Zara's personal stylist, Annie Miall, also shared the snap on her own Instagram account, revealing that the royal's beautiful blue dress is by British designer brand Beulah, one of the Duchess of Cambridge's long-standing favourites. Meanwhile, Zara's coordinating hat is a bespoke creation by Juliette Millinery.

If you would like to emulate Zara's look, then you're in luck because her Beulah dress is currently on sale at Matches Fashion for 50% off. The Darsha Floral-Print Silk Midi Dress can now be snapped up for £247, down from its original price of £495.

The long-sleeved dress boasts a wearable midi-length skirt and has a tie-waist detailing for a flattering finish, so it's the sort of investment outfit you'll be able to wear time and time again.
