Lady Sarah Chatto stepped out at the Royal Ascot on Thursday in her signature formal attire, much to the delight of her longstanding royal fans. 

Lady Sarah Chatto made an exciting appearance at the Royal Ascot on Thursday, joining her aristocratic relatives in celebration of the event's traditional Ladies Day. 

The Queen's niece and daughter of Princess Margaret arrived at the Berkshire equestrian gala yesterday afternoon in a horse-drawn carriage alongside her husband, Daniel, and the Viscount and Viscountess Brookeborough, before alighting at the exclusive Royal Enclosure to mingle with its other members. Sarah, who is also the mother of the Queen's great-grandnephew, was present again at the races on Wednesday, where she was spotted chatting with Zara Tindall. 

In classic Lady Sarah Chatto fashion, the 58-year-old went for a simple, feminine outfit at the outdoor shindig on Thursday. She wore a white button-up cardigan over a white shirt with a matching pleated skirt, as well as a wide-brimmed, white sunhat to shade her from the blistering sun. She completed the elegant look with timeless jewelry, including a necklace and bracelet of pearls, a silver triangular brooch, and a pair of diamond-encrusted earrings. The angelic ensemble wasn't too different to Camilla Parker Bowles' 'beautifully elegant' white dress at the Royal Ascot, which has quickly gone viral for its heatwave-busting properties.

The chic royal added the final touches with cream-colored kitten heels and a white, leather clutch. Her brown hair was straightened and styled with flipped ends while her face appeared to be make-up free. 

Fans were delighted to see the lesser-known royal at the event, with many taking to Twitter to shower her style choices with praise. 

"I love seeing Sarah. She is so elegant and just adorable," one person wrote. 

On Day Two, Lady Sarah wore a similar outfit - a dusty pink, button-up cardigan, a pleated salmon skirt, and a white-brimmed cream hat.

"She is almost always wearing a feminine cardigan and (usually) a full skirt. I love her look. It's nostalgic, and she always pulls it off beautifully," one royal fan wrote. 

"What I love about Sarah is how she always seems to be wearing a buttoned-up cardigan!" another person said.

Others were quick to point out how the resemblance she holds to her late mother, Princess Margaret. 

"Wow she looks like her mother Princess Margaret!!" one fan tweeted, while another simply wrote, "Image of her mother."
