Elizabeth Hurley looks lovely in lace dress and a fanciful hat at Royal Ascot 2024

The queen of summer has arrived at the races.

Elizabeth Hurley might be known for her sultry swimwear, but she covered up in a look fit for the royal family as she rocked an elegant white lace dress at day two of Royal Ascot 2024 on Wednesday.

The “Austin Powers” star, 59, wore a fitted long-sleeved Monique Lhuillier dress ($4,995) covered in colorful floral embroidery as she entered the racecourse in Ascot, England on the arm of her longtime friend, Henry Birtles.

The midi-length style, which wouldn’t have looked out of place on Kate Middleton, featured a scalloped neckline and 3D floral embellishments.

The swimwear entrepreneur added a bird’s nest-style headpiece to the look, wearing a white tulle hat surrounded by tan basketweave trim.

Hurley — who recently stripped down to her underwear for a Dior shoot — hob-nobbed with the likes of Queen Camilla during her day at Ascot, with the yellow name badge on her chest denoting the actress as a guest in the racecourse’s royal enclosure.

She pinned a similar badge on her sparkly blush purse and wore matching heels, finishing off her outfit with pearl drop earrings and a pair of aviator sunglasses.

The last time Hurley attended Royal Ascot was in 2016, when she presented the Queen Anne Stakes Trophy while wearing a sleek white shift dress and matching jacket.

Royal Ascot is a regular fixture in the British social diary each year, with Queen Camilla, Prince William and Princess Eugenie and her husband, Jack Brooksbank, arriving by carriage at Wednesday’s event.

As for her own regal connections, the “Royals” actress recently opened up about the rumors she took Prince Harry’s virginity, telling Andy Cohen that the theories were “absurd” on “Watch What Happens Live.”

“I’ve never met him in my life!” she exclaimed.
