The Cheltenham Festival kicked off on Tuesday so, of course, horse-lover Zara Phillips, or should we say Tindall, was there to watch the action. And she brought some sophisticated style to the proceedings.

Firstly, it was all about the hat. Zara was wearing a handmade elegant design by British milliner Rosie Olivia, which was a high top hat in velour fur felt with waffle veiling and two curled quills.

She paired the headpiece with a Paul Costelloe high-neck coat and a snakeskin clutch by the same designer.

According to Hello! magazine, she was also sporting Ray Ban sunglasses.

Zara was later spotted in a monochrome-print shift dress enjoying the races from a private box with a glass of red wine.

It is thought the royal will attend the four days of the festival as her Grand National horse Monbeg Dude is set to compete later this week.

Hubby Mike Tindall bought the horse for £12,000, and it finished in seventh place at Aintree last year.

According to the Express, Zara is said to be building a career as a racehorse trainer, and will be no doubt looking for a higher finish at Cheltenham.
