British royals dress up to the nines for Royal Ascot

With the Duke and Duchess planning to take on more royal engagements and Prince George, 3, due to start school at Thomas's London Day School in Battersea from September, a move for the family of four made sense.

On Tuesday, the day before his birthday, Prince William joined Queen Elizabeth and the other members of the royal family in Ascot, where they enjoyed a sunny day at the races.

Getty The monarch led a minute's silence during the day in honour of the recent tragedies across the United Kingdom, including terrorist attacks and the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower. As they have in recent years, their royal Highnesses are keen to continue to increase their official work on behalf of the Queen and for the charities and causes they support, which will require greater time spent in London'. The striking number, which retails at £249 online, looked lovely on the Princess Royal, who completed her look with a show-stopping white fascinator, nude clutch and matching heels. The man had been trapped in an elevator in the building during the fire. From this autumn, however, the Duke and Duchess will increasingly base their family at Kensington Palace.

Prince William was with Queen Elizabeth during the visit, and the two met the responders from the emergency services, the local residents and community representatives.

"Her Majesty is being kept informed and will attend Royal Ascot as planned this afternoon", a Palace spokesman said. Share your thoughts below. Immediately, the dress elicited comparisons with the wedding dress worn by Kate Middleton in 2011 when she married Prince William.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, loses her balance and falls on to Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, as the carriages pull away ahead of the first day of the Royal Ascot 2017.
