Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their Royal Ascot debut as a married couple today [19 June], one month after tying the knot at their Royal Wedding.
But with a royal engagement comes some strict dress code rules, especially at Royal Ascot 2018.
Dresses and skirts should be of modest length, reaching just above the knee. Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or greater. Jackets and pashminas may be worn as long as the outfit beneath complies with the Royal Enclosure dress code. Trouser suits are permitted as long as they are full length and of matching material and colour. Jumpsuits are accepted but should be of ankle-length. Hats should be worn, while a headpiece with a solid base of at least four inches in diameter is acceptable as an alternative.
Strapless, off-shoulder, one-shoulder, halter neck, bardot and spaghetti straps are not permitted. Midriffs must be covered. Fascinators are not permitted, neither are headpieces without a base of at least four inches.
Meghan has a tendency to break away from royal fashion guidelines, but stuck to tradition when it came to Royal Ascot, as they joined Her Majesty the Queen at the event, as well as a whole host of other royals.
For her series of public engagements with the Queen in Chester last week Meghan wore a demure, cream midi dress with a stylish belt.
