Princess Beatrice joined a carriage ride with her cousin Prince William and the Princess of Wales as they arrived at Royal Ascot on Friday afternoon.
Beatrice, 34, looked elegant as she took her seat alongside husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi in the horse-drawn carriage, sitting opposite Kate and William for the Royal Procession at the historic British racing event.
Dressed in an elegant lace floral ensemble by Monique Lhuillier, thought to cost around £2,700, the royal wore her highlighted hair in an elaborate plait, tucked under a stylish cream fascinator.
Beatrice appeared to be enjoying the traditional parade in bright sunshine at the Berkshire course, complementing her look with a pair of diamond hoop earrings, and a £475 Pearls Maud recycled satin ivory clutch bag by Anya Hindmarch.
Meanwhile her husband Edo, 39, with whom she shares a daughter, Sienna, cut a sharp figure in a three-piece suit and tails.

The quartet of royals followed the King and Queen Camilla, who shared the parade’s first carriage with the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
The Princess of Wales, 41, wore a scarlet Alexander McQueen dress and a Philip Treacy hat in a matching shade, smiling at crowds as she arrived in the carriage procession alongside Prince William, also 41.
Kate tied her hair back into a sleek bun and opted for fabulous statement gold earrings from Sézane, which she has worn before.
It’s the penultimate day of the annual meet, with the £1 million Diamond Jubilee Stakes marking the racing crescendo tomorrow.
Earlier this week Princess Beatrice donned a £495 Beulah long-sleeved nude dress patterned with tiny pink flowers as she made her first appearance at the event.
This year’s event marks the first since the death of the Queen in September – who was often dubbed Royal Ascot’s ‘biggest fan’.

During her 70-year reign, Her late Majesty attended almost every single Royal Ascot festival, with the exception of last year where she couldn’t attend due to mobility issues.
While the King has a horse racing today, yesterday he shed a tear when he secured his first ever Ascot win.
The royal couple were overcome with emotion as they watched their horse Desert Hero win the King George V race from the royal box, after two losses.
Throughout the week Princess Anne, Princess Beatrice and Mike and Zara Tindall have also been spotted enjoying the races.
The King’s cousins – Earl Snowdon and Sarah Chatto – also joined the royal procession yesterday.
Elsewhere, many revellers donned their finery to celebrate in the glorious June sun.
High heels and fascinators were a common theme with guests, who opted for colourful dresses and full glamour.
Many female racegoers opted to make the most of the relaxed rules – which allows people to dress from the male or female dress code regardless of their gender – opting for bright trouser suits.
Last night revellers looked worse for wear this evening as they left the Berkshire racecourse after hours of partying.
Earlier in the day, glamorous guests had dressed themselves up to the nines to attend the event, which is considered to be the crown jewel in the racing calendar.
While its competitors Cheltenham, Epsom and Aintree have ditched their dress codes , Ascot still has a fairly strict clothing policy.
Having made it past security in high heels this morning, racegoers were pictured giving their feet a break as they left the premises in flip flops.

David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linely, also known as Earl Snowdon, is the son of the late Princess Margaret and Antony Armstrong-Jones, 1st Earl of Snowdon.
His sister, Lady Sarah Chatto and her husband Daniel Chatto joined the procession too, alongside Lord Nicolas Soames, a former Conservative MP and grandson of Winston Churchill.
Camilla’s family – including her sister, ex sister-in-law and ex-husband have also been spotted at the races.

What’s more, the organisers also selecting a photograph of the Queen beaming at Ladies Day in 2013.
The event turned out to be one of the Queen’s most successful Ascots as her horse Estimate won the Gold Cup – making her the first monarch in 200 years to scoop the prize.
The late royal was pictured beaming at her trophy, which was presented to her by her son Prince Andrew.
The Queen was dressed in one of her signature coat dresses in a pretty shade of purple.
Underneath her jacket, the monarch wore a pretty floral dress – which perfectly complimented the flowers on her hat.
