Zara Tindall was in her element as she enjoyed a day at Cheltenham Racecourse for the spring race meeting with her husband Mike on Thursday.

The royal also wore a pair of black leather skinny jeans for a modern twist on raceday fashion which worked well with her black heeled ankle boots. She also wore an in-keeping black crossbody bag and donned an extra layer, a black high-necked sweater, for added warmth.

The finishing touches were added to Zara's look in the form of a black statement headband (à la Princess Beatrice) and a pair of tortoiseshell sunglasses that complemented the earthy tone of her coat.
