Princess Beatrice’s Royal Ascot Dress Is Perfect For Wedding Guest Season – And Is Currently On Sale

A floral frock is always a winner.

Princess Beatrice Royal Ascot

by Natalie Hammond |

If you've got a fridge door covered in wedding invites and need outfit inspo on the double, look no further than the latest look from Princess Beatrice. Arriving at Royal Ascot, which kicks off today and finishes on Saturday, the young royal chose a puff-sleeved dress by Zimmermann. And not only is the floral frock still available to buy, it's currently on sale at 30% off on Net-a-Porter.

Styling the shirt dress with raffia accessories - including a blossom-sprigged headband (much more modern than a hat), a waist belt and a clutch bag embroidered with her initials - she looked smart but not stuffy, a fine balance to strike when it comes to the most glamorous event on the racing calendar. (Zimmermann has several other dresses on sale, with more sizes available than Beatrice's, including this tiered maxi dress that majors in boho-luxe.) As usual, she's onto a winner.
