No wacky fascinators this time -- but Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie still made a splash alongside their royal family at Saturday's 2011 Epsom Derby in Epsom, England.

Prince Andrew and Duchess Sarah Ferguson's daughters, who rocked unforgettable headgear at Prince William and Kate's April 29 wedding, joined their newly married cousin, 28, his wife Princess Kate, 29, their father, and others for the big race -- where grandmother Queen Elizabeth's horse, Carlton House, placed third.

Redhead Beatrice, 22, wore a rose-themed floral dress with blue, cream and green accents -- plus a massive white rose headpiece. Her sister Eugenie, 21, opted for polka-dots, donning a cream dress with black dots with a black bow at the waist and a broad-brimmed white hat.

The bow/pretzel shaped fascinator (designed by Philip Treacy) that Beatrice famously wore to the royal wedding was recently auctioned off for approximately $130,000, with moneys going toward UNICEF UK and Children in Crisis. "It has its own personality, and I am so happy that we have raised the most incredible amount of money and can make an even bigger change for the lives of some of the most vulnerable children across the world," Beatrice said after the auction.

Eugenie's pet cause? Raising funds for the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London; she recently opened up about life-changing emergency surgery she had there at age 12 to repair a severe curvature in her spine.

"It was a huge part of my life when I was 12 - so young," Beatrice said during a recent visit with patients at the hospital. "Children can see me and know that [the operation] works."
