Yes, I agree about the white hose. A tan shade would look better if she didn't want to go with dark hose.

HRH rarely seems to wear black hosiery and the white stockings seem to be her preferred choice.
Is everyone familiar with the recent story where the Countess had her heels fixed on a Royal engagement? The press were quoted as describing the Countess waiting in her "silk stockinged feet".
I do absolutely love her heels. The seem very high and in photos with other Royals, HRH does seem to dominate over them!

I think you are referring to her engagement on Nov. 23: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...sons-tour.html. This would sound more negative that it's meant to come across, seems to me the "repair" was p.r. piece than for real. It's more orchestrated for the benefit of the attendants. I really don't think the Countess was waiting for that particular visit to fix her heels.

I completely agree. The Countess was obviously only having her heels fixed out of curiosity and interest in the process rather than out of necessity.
I was just using the example to highlight her preference for a certain style of hosiery.
By the way, have a look at the IBL pictures from Christmas day. There's a picture of Sophie where the Queen is standing behind her and I'm sure Her Majesty Is looking down at Sophie's heels.
You can fill in the captions for what the Queen is thinking yourselves!

I think Sophie looked very elegant and regal on Christmas day... perhaps taking a cue from the French first lady, Carla Sarkozy

Blue is a very good color on Sophie, the suit is perfect for her. I'm not crazy about the black accesories, but I don't know what would have looked better.

I so enjoyed seeing this photograph! Sophie looks wonderfully elegant and the Queen is probably remembering when she used to wear higher heels "back in the day" that had a more dainty heel than what she now wears.
I do agree that seems to prefer a light hose. Perhaps she wants to try to match her skin tone? I know I can't stand hose that are too tan and I generally wear a nude shade myself.

From one side, Countess of Wessex should be lauded for recycling the hat. From the other, I would say that this particular saucer hat did not suit her well because the hat looked like black honey comb glued to a head. Additionally I would say that the black colour particularly does not become Countess of Wessex well. She tends to look drawn wearing black outfits. Of course, my opinion can be wrong.

Sophie has several "saucer" hats. I'm not crazy about the pie-in-the-head look.

HRH look lovely today at the unveiling of the Queen Mother Memorial, a beautiful dress and the gloves and umbrella were very elegant, though again the outfit is ruined by that dreadful saucer on her head

She looks fabulous - very stylish and elegant. I do worry about how she will be able to lift her arms though!
