Do you mean this picture?: http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/...x_2248550b.jpg

Sophie is always so good with children!

No William and Kate at Sandringham church service but Queen is in the pink - Mirror Online
Only they were with Queen, so I'm posting it here.

Fancy hat! Countess of Wessex sports oversized headwear as she accompanies the Queen to church at Sandringham | Mail Online
Quote:
The Countess was wrapped up warm against the elements in the angled fawn hat and near-matching overcoat, as she accompanied a small contingent of the Royal Family to the service.
The Countess escorted by the Queen was driven the short distance from Sandringham house in a Bentley.

I give her credit - the match of the hat w/coat is spectacular. But from some angles she appears to have lost her head. Here comes Sophie's hat!

Sophie wore that hat back in 2002 for Maxima wedding:

It looks like Philip Treacy but cannot confirm it.

That really a Mad Hatter topper, but I like it. I certainly prefer it over the fascinators and it matched beautifully with the fawn coat. As far as the coat, it's a nice style but I didn't care for the bulky material in front.

Thanks Anna! If Sophie is like I am, and she brings home a new coat and finds it is a perfect match for a years-old accessory - I am sure she did big jumpy claps when she figured this out!

I'm following "Tomorrow's People" via Twitter, and asked them about pics from Dinner at the Castle that Countess attended in December.
And they shared 1st pic of her, she looks stunning, love this velvet gown.

She wore it once to a concert.

I can't believe that she is turning 50 in two years. She is looks like being at the end of her thirties.

That velvet gown is absolutely gorgeous on Sophie. She does indeed look good for her age. It'd be lovely if we all had a chance to age like that.

I like the plunging dip to the back of the gown.

yeah, her hair looks a bit darker but I think it's just the light of the photo

This is a great photo of Sophie I think she's been looking her best in the past year

Sophie is a 'forgotten' royal like so many others. Any royal out of the top 5, unless it's scandalous or baby related doesn't get a mention.

How many dresses does this woman own?! That looks like an Amanda Wakeley dress, but I could be very wrong. The cut at the front is quite low cut.... Sophie has nice curves and is obviously a very sexy woman, as we all know, so I like that she "flaunts it". Seriously, nearly 50? I would like to see her passport so she can prove this.
