Cheltenham racegoers were joined by royalty as they battled the elements for the final day of the festival.

It’s been a busy week for Zara Tindall, 37, who has been a firm fixture at the races throughout the week. 

Upping the style stakes, the mother-of-two wrapped up in a chic black and white bespoke checked coat dress by Claire Mischevani which featured button detail – and completed the look with a Sally Ann Provan fascinator which she placed at an angle on her sleeked back blonde hair.

She was in good company as her husband Mike Tindall, 40, sister-in-law Autumn, 40, and Princess Anna, 68, also arrived for the famous Gold Cup day, which sees the world‘s best horses take to the stage.

Zara’s husband, former English rugby player Mike Tindall, opted for a dark grey suit and one vital accessory – an umbrella. 

He added a burgundy tie to complement the bow detail on his wife’s chic fascinator and also her suede bag, which she clutched in her left hand. 

Meanwhile, Autumn appeared to struggle in the wind as she placed a firm hand on her burgundy Camilla rose fedora hat – which came complete with a black trim. 

Wearing a guinea London navy velvet coat and Camilla rose fedora, she was surrounded by friends and appeared in high spirits as she headed inside to the enclosure. 

Princess Anne, 68, (pictured) also joined Zara, Mike and Autumn and ensured she stood out in a bright turquoise coat

Princess Anne opted for a coordinated turquoise outfit and added a scarf and boots for the event which kicked off this afternoon.

Her bold ensemble bears a striking resemblance to the one she wore on Wednesday – which marked day three of the races. 

She engaged in conversation with British jockey and former track cyclist Victoria Pendleton, 38, who looked stylish in a lightly checked grey suit and of-the-moment leopard print bag.

Later, she was pictured congratulating jockey Paul Townend following his victory with horse Al Boum Photo in The Magners Cheltenham Gold Cup Steeple Chase.

The royals were also joined by celebrities including Carol Vorderman, who made a bold statement with a monochrome look, which she set off with bright red gloves and a large waisted belt with a gold buckle.

The Gold Cup is the jewel in the crown of jump racing, with reigning champion Native River in with a strong chance of doing the double if he can fend off hotly tipped rival Presenting Percy.
