Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and the others at Royal Ascot
Kate Middleton still hasn't been seen at Royal Ascot after three days of competition. But Sophie from Wessex, the real star of the horse show with two amazing looks, took care of her stealing the show.
If Buckingham Palace explained that due to Covid, and for the second consecutive year, the Queen will not attend Royal Ascot, which she particularly cares about. Her Majesty is a horse racing enthusiast and one of her horses is competing. Apparently she knows everything about favorites and underdogs and for her it was a big waiver not to attend the traditional date in person. This is only the second time in 69 years that this has happened.
But for security reasons related to the pandemic, Elizabeth is forced to follow the races on television, at Windsor Castle where in a few weeks she awaits the visit of Harry who will return to London for the inauguration of the statue of Diana.
Taking her place at Royal Ascot were Carlo and Camilla, Zara Tindall, horse racing champion, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex, perhaps the most appreciated granddaughter of the Queen. While Kate Middleton and William have not yet seen each other and it is not certain that they will take part in the event.

On the other hand, in 10 years of marriage, the Duchess of Cambridge only attended Royal Ascot three times and in all cases she showed off gorgeous outfits, including a beautiful white lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana. In 2018 the edition skipped, leaving the field to Meghan Markle.
In 2021, Sophie from Wessex took care of her stealing the show. Prince Edward's wife first showed up with a white silk shirt and transparent sleeves, signed ARoss Girl x Soler, which she paired with a long and wide skirt with a light background decorated with huge lilac flowers, from the Suzannah brand. The entire dress of the same line as the skirt worn by the Countess of Wessex costs 4,950 pounds (5,783 euros). The look is completed with the inevitable wisteria-colored hat with feathers.
On the second date Sophie showed up in a dark green dress with large stylized white palm trees. The brand is still Suzannah, but the cost is much more affordable, “only” 190 pounds (about 222 euros).
