Royal Ascot 2021 is now in full swing and a host of famous faces have joined thousands of attendees at the races on Ladies' Day.

Among the stars that have brushed off their best frocks and extravagant hats for today's high profile event was television presenter Charlotte Hawkins, as well as Strictly star Janette Manrara and Emma Weymouth.

It comes two days after the high-profile event kicked off in Berkshire as part of a test event that hopes to set the stage for future large gatherings amid the pandemic.

This year, organisers are taking extra precautions and are making sure that all the attendees have negative PCR tests as well as lateral flow testing throughout the event.

While there are plenty of face masks on display, so too are plenty of glamorous outfits as onlookers celebrate the biggest racing event of the year.

Although Ladies' Day ended up being a little wetter than the past two scorching afternoons, it hasn't stopped attendees from showing off their most dazzling fascinators and high heels.
