Zara and Mike Tindall share their amazing Royal Ascot outfits from home

By Heather Cichowski

Royal Ascot might be taking place behind closed doors because of the coronavirus and lockdown measures in the United Kingdom this year, but regular attendees are still showing their spirit by getting dressed up to watch the races at home!

Zara and Mike Tindall took to social media on June 16, the first day of the races, to show off their dapper Royal Ascot at Home style.

Mike posted a photo of himself and his wife dressed to the nines in their best Royal Ascot outfits. The races are known for their refined dress code. Even while isolating at home during COVID-19, they have adhered to Royal Ascot's sartorial suggestions.

Mike was outfitted in a debonair three-piece grey suit with a pale blue shirt and tie, accompanied by a black top hat and shoes.

The Queen's second-eldest grandchild was clad in a printed blue Beulah London dress with a bespoke Juliette Botterill fascinator and Emmy London pumps.

This year, Royal Ascot is running a #StyledWithThanks initiative that is encouraging fans to dress up and take part in Royal Ascot at Home. Organizers are calling on people to share their outfits with the hashtags "#StyledWithThanks" and "#RoyalAscot" and are being encouraged to donate £5 (approximately $8.50) to the campaign fundraising page. To kick off the initiative, Ascot has donated £100,000 (approximately $171,000).

All money raised from the initiative will be split between four frontline charities: The National Emergencies Trust Relief Fund, NHS Charities Together, The Care Workers Charity and the Berkshire Community Foundation Coronavirus Fund.

London-based stylist Annie Miall dressed Princes Anne's daughter and husband for the occasion, and shared a photo on Instagram with the hashtags. She revealed Mike and Zara would conduct an at-home interview to discuss the happenings at the races. Annie has previously styled Zara, including for the Cheltenham Festival in March.

Annie previously spoke with HELLO! Canada about styling clients for events and adhering to dress codes. She also shared some thoughts on hats and fascinators and how to get them stay in place on windy racetracks!

Like many members of the Royal Family, Zara and Mike share a passion for horses and racing. They attended several days of the Cheltenham racing event and also stepped out at Royal Ascot 2019.

Her Majesty shared a special message for Royal Ascot fans this year. It is the first time in the monarch's 68-year reign she has not been able to attend the beloved event.

"I send my best wishes to the thousands of racing professionals and enthusiasts who will join me in celebrating this year's Royal Ascot," the 94-year-old penned.

"In these challenging times, we are once again delighted to welcome the best horses and jockeys from across the world and pay tribute to those who have helped make this race meeting possible..."
