I have mixed feeling about Countess of Wessex's look. The ensemble (caplet and dress(?)) had sleek clean lines. Grey colour becomes Countess very well. However, a singnature satellite hat did not match the whole look in my personal opinion. Perhaps ... an unfussy headpiece/hat would have been suited better.

Lovely outfit, I think she looks beautiful in most colors and shades--it's that wonderful complexion of hers--but the hat is just a bit over the top for my taste:

course, I don't know if it's better worse than the saucers. I vastly prefer this Easter bonnet from 2000

The hat The Countess of Wessex wore for the Easter Sunday service has been worn before, as lumutqueen states. I think she wore the hat for the service for the 60th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War during the Westminster Abbey service in July 2005; and again for the Enthronement service for Prince Albert II of Monaco. I think this hat is really posh for the occasion and I love seeing her in this 'chique' outfit.

This hat is gorgeous. I am pleased to see that she decided to recycle it. It really suits her.

Another beige choice from Sophie she needs a bit of colour as she favours beiges amd greys far too much

I can only think of all of the poor birds which sacrificed their magnificent plumage for Sophie's hat ...
The feathers looked better on the birds -

Thanks PrincessofEurope, I agree, far too many bland colours. Great shoes though!

I swear this woman has the worst taste in hats!!! This last hat looks as if 3 or 4 different birds are having a fight over something on her hat! She plays it safe with her clothes and tries to spice things up with her way over the top hats, and it just does not work. every time is looks like a big horrible mess. Ugh!

At least it's a recycled piece. So the 3-4 birds sacrificed were not in vain. And it actually looks like a hat, not a facinator or whatever passes as a headgear on a band.

The hat, well its ok, but I agree the color of the suit is too bland on her skin, some nice jewels would have been better, I did like this look better in Monaco.

The suit is unflattering :(
Colour is boring, doesn't match with her skin tone. Hat is ok, I like it.

I have to agree, the suit is pretty frumpy. The hat is great.

Countess of Wessex's ensemble was perfectly chosen. Soft peach colour brought out her complexion.
