Sophie wore her Stella McCartney ‘Vivienne’ navy coat, which she wore recently in Malta. This panelled coat, features a v-neckline, hidden button closures, rear waist band to cinch the coat in. The skirt of the coat flares into an a-line midi length to create a beautiful feminine timeless coat.

Sophie re-wore her Prada suede pointed-toe pumps in peach-nude (£500) that we also saw in Malta. A nice mid-heel height stiletto, so you won’t titler too much. You can purchase Sophie’s Prada heels here, also available in a lovely powder blue.

Sophie’s hat was a chic navy creation by milliner Jane Taylor. Sophie wore the Alessia Hat (£961) in navy with brown and tan coloured feathers. It is described as a disc fascinator with feathers and a twist.

Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall have worn a felted version of this hat the Zaphara. We show the hat in a dusty pink colour, currently available at Jane Taylor.

Sophie has previously worn this hat on several occasions, including when she inspected soldiers of 5 Rifles as she attended their homecoming parade and during the Jubilee Weekend in 2012. This means this hat is at least 6 years old and must be taken good care of by the Countess in a hat box, though a milliner can always quickly refresh a hat if needed.
