The Countess of Wessex dazzles in a navy ensemble in Scotland, describing herself as “class personified.”
SOPHIE The Countess of Wessex was spotted playing golf with Prince Edward on an official trip to Scotland yesterday. The two have accompanied the Queen on a tour of Scotland.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Prince Edward were in Forfar and Angus for engagements. They went to the Forfar Golf Club, Utopia Costumes, and S-Mart, a social grocery.
The princess was dressed in an Etro blue short dress with a floral motif, which costs £985.
Net a Porter has since sold out of the stunning garment.
Sophie wore it with a pair of Penelope Chilvers shoes, a favorite of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who is also a royal.
The Mary Jane type shoes “Tango” cost £239.
Her Sophie Habsburg clutch bag, a baby blue variant of the Ginny purse, is full price at €190.00 (£164).
Her blonde highlighted hair was styled in a stylish bun by the royal.
On Twitter, fans were eager to compliment the royal.
“Sophie is class personified,” one person wrote.
Another added, “The Countess of Wessex is just very pleasant and a fantastic supporter of Her Majesty.”
The monarch was described as “representing Her Majesty impeccably as always,” according to one source.
Sophie’s dress was designed by Etro, an Italian fashion firm.
The firm, which was founded in the late 1960s, is most renowned for its 1980s paisley patterns.
Olivia Wilde, an actress and director, is another well-known wearer of the label.
Alessandra Ambrosio, a model, and Nicole Richie, a reality celebrity, have both worn the brand on the red carpet.
Sophie is one of the best-dressed royals in the United Kingdom, with a £3 million jewelry collection.
She owns one necklace alone that is estimated to be worth £250,000.
“Sometimes you just can’t place a price on a personalised piece of jewellery, especially when specifics on the stone in terms of purity and weight are unknown,” James Constantino, founder of Prestige Pawnbrokers and star of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn, told This website.
“However, it’s fair to suggest that a piece like this, with its royal ties and added historic value, may be worth more than £250,000.”
Sophie Wessex’s body language with her two children, Louise and James, was recently studied by an expert.
Sophie’s “strong” parenting was mentioned by the body language specialist.
“I think it’s evident from many of the photographs that Sophie is the strongest part of her family,” Darren Stanton said.
“Prince Edward has his hands in his pockets, which could just be that.”
