How does she (a) fit in a car and (b) go through a doorway?

I've always liked this coat. It reminds me of the part of the documentary The Royal Family at Work (I think?) where Sophie's visiting a centre for the blind and describes the coat to an elderly blind lady and lifts her hand so she can feel the detailing around the neckline. It was really touching.

Althought it is a repeat, I do really like this coat. I think it is a very good fit, and nice that she keeps clothes for years. Of course she had the old faithfuls on her feet. I wasn't too sure if I liked her hat to begin with, but it grew on me. Anything she wore would have looked great, mainly because it was paired with Lady Louise's attendance!

Beautiful color and I like the pleats on the coat. I don't think I care for the exaggerated brim on the hat, but I love the feather embellishment. I actually like the 2005 style hat better.

I absolutely love this look, Sophie looks gorgeous.
The coat is very beautiful and the colour suits Sophie.
And the biggest surprise - the hat actually resembles one; not the usual satellite dishes she so likes. Goes on nicely with the rest of the look too.

The dusty rose is a perfect color for Sophie and Easter.
I'm sorry to say my second impression was that she needed more support up top, especially compared to the 2005 image.

Probably age and gravity contributing here!

Hello all - if this has been posted or discussed before, please just point me in the right direction!

I have a question about Sophie's hair. I love the ponytail/bun she has been wearing quite often since the royal wedding last April. I know that she has been growing her hair out, but I did not think that her hair was long enough (especially at the wedding) to wear it pulled back in that fashion. Does anyone know/think that it is a hair clip? I think it is really flattering on her, and if clips exist, I would love to try one.

Thanks for any info!

Amy

I think it is a hair clip...although a closely- matched one.

The color and texture are a little different from her natural hair which IMO gives it away, however I see nothing wrong with her using a hair clip (if, in fact, she does) as it looks quite attractive. Here in California, hair clips are easily available at kiosks inside shopping malls as well as beauty supply shops and online.

Sophie looks brilliant.
Normally, I'm not a fan of all-black ensembles; however, Sophie managed to look very elegant and professional. The whites on the side give it an interesting twist.
The Countess just looks so happy and pleased to be there - no one could possibly look bad or too sombre with that radiant smile!

Its a flattering suit as well.
