She’s in Australia fulfilling her role as Magic Millions Racing Ambassador.
And while enjoying all the hospitality the Gold Coast has to offer, the daughter of Princess Anne appears to have also taken a shine to a local fashion designer.
Enjoying the festivities on Saturday, the 34-year-old was the epitome of sophistication in a purple frock by Sydney-based luxury label Ellery.

The dress, which retails for around $2,600, is a paisley jacquard construction with a crew neck and asymmetrical flared skirt.
Designer Kym Ellery is often inspired by the ever-changing rocker David Bowie, with one of his many aliases Ziggy Stardust playing a key role in the design of her this piece from her pre-fall 15 collection.
The royal paired the classy frock with a pair of simple black mules and a matching purple fascinator, adding a touch of bling with a diamond-embellished bracelet.

She posed for photographs from within the VIP precinct with her husband Mike Tindall, who wore a stylish navy suit and a burgundy tie.
On Friday, Zara was snapped sharing a laugh with model Kris Smith and sports broadcaster Hamish McLachlan, as well as posing with horse Nakanai at the 2016 Gold Coast Yearling Sales.
She appeared to be in high spirits, pulling goofy faces and funny hand gestures as she talked to the pair, who seemed to be amused by the conversation.

Zara also stood for photos with Nakanai, who took his own turn at pulling faces for the camera.
Zara and husband Mike have been on the Gold Coast for racehorse auction house Magic Millions’ annual shindig, which involves races in the day and plenty of partying at night.
But on Friday she was looking more formal than on some earlier appearances in the week, when she and Mike donned casual attire to race miniature horses on the Surfers Paradise foreshore.

Two different outfits saw her go for a blue and white patterned dress and orange and blue fascinator, and another was a striking bright orange sleeveless dress with black contrast and a yellow fascinator.
The royal certainly knows her way around the racecourse, having had a successful career as an equestrian, competing at events around the world.
Zara is the only daughter of Princess Anne and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips.
In 2012, she was announced as the Magic Millions Racing Woman Ambassador and has attended three events since.
Magic Millions is a thoroughbred horse auction house with a number of sales locations across Australia.
