Thank you so much for posting the clear picture, Thain. Yes, this outfit, without the watermarks, looks great.

Why do wonder about who paid for it?

I really like the coat, but not the hat. It's just too big and strange.

I agree; the outfit was lovely but the fanciful hat spoiled the look for me.
The hat just appeared to be uncomfortable to look at since it covered half of Sophie's face; she also appeared to be having trouble keeping it in place.

I certainly prefer the hats worn by the Duchess of Cornwall and the Queen; beautiful and nice but comfortable and unpretentious.

She looks ready to lay an egg. The outfit is very lovely, however. Thanks for the chuckle, Iceflower!

Sophie's hat reminds me of a satellite dish. Too cumbersome and overwhelming. Camila's and Her Majesty's hats were absolutely fabulous.

I seem to be alone in liking the hat! The whole ensemble is beautiful -- for some reason Sophie looks her best in neutral colors IMO. And she seems to radiate happiness in the photos. One of the royal correspondents, Robert Jobson, I believe, tweeted that it was a very uplifting service.

ETA: NGalitzine and I both like the hat!

I am with the majority in disliking the hat, it's abit too much. Normally I adore Sophie's brave choices in the milinery department but today's hat was a bit too much. Her outfit itself was beautiful and I this image is stunningly beautiful, she looks so pretty.

I wish she had worn black shoes with the outfit though, as he dress was black, but the nude shoes are lovely. I swear she has several pairs of them, surely it can't be the same pair she has worn to pretty much every occasion.

I love the outfit!
Have a couple theories about the hat:Pardon the humor.
A rooster ran into a satellite dish. Sophie made a hat of the remains.
A rooster destroyed Sophie's wicker furniture. Same as above, because she wanted to economize and recycle. Admirable idea.... Execution, not so much.
Sophie visited Sesame Street, and did an art project with Big and Granny Bird, and the chickens, using twigs from the formers nest, and the latter's feathers. The result?

I think the protection officers might frown just a little, if we tried to eat Sophie's hat!

Well she technically doesn't have one anymore so...it's a risk, but a risk i'd be willing to take!
