An article from The Guernsey Press:

Countess of Wessex brings message from the Queen « Guernsey Press

Liberation Day is an important event in Guernsey (and the other Channel Islands), with a parade and celebrations all day long with great festive spirit. I'm so please the Countess of Wessex has attended the event.

I'm not sure how I feel about the dress- think I like it. Need your sun shades for that one! Love the earrings! Had I been the Countess, I think I would have gone red dress, green earrings. Love the way the Countess was with veterans in wheelchairs.

I think the choice was brilliant. I think the execution of the hem is confusing. The bell out hem is different from the Suzannah as shown. In any case, it made argue in my head bad hem vs. odd design?

But I love all the rest, down to the smallest details it was excellent!

I love this dress, it looks gorgeous, as well as ruby earrings. The hem might look weird due to angle of the pics.
One of the best looks of HRH. Well done!
PS, I have updated my post.

This dress is amazing and I adore the colour! It looks like a dress Sophie would wear to Ascot although I am unsure if she will repeat it for Ascot. I hope she does though as it's gorgeous. I love the entire 50's retro look - very Mad Men.

Thanks for the links to more photos on your blog, Anna

I do agree. The dress was just right for a VE remembrance.
Can remember when those dresses and skirt lengths were in style in late 40s and early 50s. Always looked neat and bell flared skirts were very upscale then. Lovely.

I was so pleased that several photographers came with Sophie today! I loved what Sophie was wearing today - it was completely appropriate for an engagement that involved climbing in and out of a helicopter. A dress would not have been a good idea so it's good that Sophie forethought the outfit. I also need those Prada shoes in my life - they are gorgeous.

Thanks for tracking down so many beautiful photos of Sophie today, Anna. You are credit to Sophie!

I think its great that both Edward and Sophie now share the duties of handing out the awards.

I love the colour of the dress but not a fan of the buttons.
