I believe Sophie has discovered that if you wear a hat that everyone must comment on, no one notices your hair!

So true, and her hair looked very nice in that updo! And while the dress was very elegant, I thought the neckline a bit too plunging for a daytime church service.

When I saw her hair with the hat, I thought it might be a hair piece, does she really have that long hair to get a bun that large? Or maybe it was just teased up a bit?

STEP AWAY FROM THE HAT!

I love Sophie's style. The older she gets the better she gets and this repeat outfit just proves the point. Sophie has STYLE, really great style, and not the least bit mumsy or boring! And her hats! Being a hat fanatic, I have to admit that Sophie is the finest purveyor of Hat Eye Candy in the BRF! And this one is an absolute pearler.

It is my opinion that the second incarnation of Sophie is a triumph. For so many years she seemed to be working on the royal fashion version of fading into the wallpaper and then suddenly, from seemingly out of nowhere, there she was, svelte, chic and knock dead gorgeous with a hint of "back off honey, I can still change a tyre for myself". Her KH ensemble in it's muted shades made her glow instead of washing her out. As to that remarkable peice of millinery . . . what can I say . . . perfection.

Sophie has really grown comfortable in her own skin, she doesn't feel the necessity to be a slave to "fashion" and judging by some "fashionable" royals, I can only say she has made the better choice by becoming a style setter. A lesson for all of us that nothing is cast in stone. We all have to power to change the way we see ourselves.

Sophie obviously sees herself as a happy, healthy and confident woman who proves that being a wife and mother and having a penchant for fashion and fun are not mutually exclusive. And if you don't believe that, take another look at that simply glorious chapeau!

I agree too. She's obviously having fun with some of her hats and fashion choices in general, and this is just great, IMO. Why taking everything seriously?

With Sophie, the chickens have definitely come home to roost, this one on her head!

I love it, but it's totally true in the case of this hat.

The Countess of Wessex attended several events on March 21, lovely dressed in a red coat:

I agree. Love the red coat but the fit is not good on Sophie. The "up" hair do is very chic though.

I absolutely love the combination of red and beige, as well as the fact tiny bit of the dress (or skirt) is showing under the coat.
Sophie looks lovely.

I agree, the coat is a size or two too big but her overall is quite pretty.

She looks perfect in Pic 1, in the other pictures the coat appears too big indeed, but couldn't that be due to the angle? However, red coat and beige accessories is an interesting and beautiful combo. Especially against her hair which appears to have a nice shade at the moment. Lovely!
