Royal Ascot 2018

Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the first day of Royal Ascot, June 19, 2018

Exactly one month ago they were married at Windsor, and today the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended their first Royal Ascot together! The Duchess of Sussex made her debut at the 300 year-old event in a belted white Givenchy shirtdress featuring floral embroidery across the midsection. She accessorized with a black satin minaudière, also by Givenchy, and a completely fabulous fascinator by milliner-to-the-Royals, Philip Treacy. Now, the dress is bespoke and completely unattainable to the masses, but the clutch and fascinator can both still be ordered online.

Chocolate Duchess achieved complete sartorial redemption today and I loved it. One thing is also clear: this Princess loves Givenchy and Clare Waight Keller. Just as Alexander McQueen is The Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to label, it appears Givenchy will serve as the same for The Duchess of Sussex. This places the former actress is exquisite company, as Audrey Hepburn herself was the original Givenchy muse. In fact, did anyone else think Chocolate Duchess was giving a subtle nod to ‘Mary Fair Lady’ with her Royal Ascot ensemble?

Here’s hoping The Duke and Duchess of Sussex make more than one appearance at Royal Ascot this week! Feast your eyes on images of all The Windsors at Royal Ascot today right here: https://dailym.ai/2yoLVGX
