I never realized how much I dislike Sophie's hosiery choices- they really are bad. Is there some medical condition with her legs requiring these awful shiny, spandex support hose that Im otherwise unaware of?

HRH's hosiery reminds me very much of Diana's. Diana used to wear high gloss/sheen (?) stockings and I always just assumed they were silk or alternatively, very, very expensive...

I don't care for the grey outfit, but in the third picture the coat and her shoes look lovely!

Mmm, I think I disliked all of the above outfits. Especially that ugly brown leather jacket in the 1st pic. Too bad, she's a beautiful woman.

I don't think it's leather, rather a wax jacket favoured by those interested in country pursuits.

Would you be so kind as to explain to me what a "wax jacket" is? I know the difference between real leather and faux leather, but I have never heard of wax.

Wax jacket is a coat with a coating of wax to make it water proof. The one the Countess is wearing is popular amongst equestrians.

Thank you! All I had to do is look at the pic of Sophie wearing hers and I could have figured that out. I think that we here across the pond call ours Slickers. :)

After looking at pictures 2, 3 and 4, I think Sophie could use a good "foundation garment" (as my mother would call it! I would call it investing in Spanx!). A little bit of support here and there could help her figure. Overall, she has good taste in clothing and knows how to look for whatever event it is.

In photo 4 she is in early stages of her pregnancy no.2 that is but I agree on a regular basis a good foundation would not go astray.

Yep, proper undergarments would help immensely in the eveningware department in her mid-section and chest area. (I wouldnt step out the door for a glamor evening without my Spanx, BTW!)

The gowns in pics #1, 3 and 5 are all wonderful. So elegant and regal! They suit her so much
