I do like Sophie's coat in the photo shown below.

However, I like the hat only because it's not a satellite dish.

I love the coat! It's so chic and elegant. However the hat is awful!

I'm sorry to say I hate everything about that look. I could almost deal with the hat but the coat is horrible. I don't like the shape, the giant collar, or the dark buttons. It might be one of the worst things I've seen her wear.

I know what the hat reminds me of now! A modified version of a curling stone:

I like the coat, it was very elegant and understated. Yet something about this look is not right for me - I think it is the hat, hair, and watch. But the earrings are lovely.

The countess of wessex's hat does remind you of a curling stone but I think Sophie looks nice.

The Countess of Wessex at the Chelsea Flower Show in London on May 21, wearing a dress with an
interesting print - a huge flower print I would say:

Sophie has worn that dress during the Caribbean tour.
I have to admit it has never been one of my favourites; the print is too busy.

I agree; the print is too busy. If it were short-sleeved, it might have looked better but it's somewhat overwhelming.

I agree that the print is a bit too busy, but Sophie still looked great. She was paricularly glowing at the Flower Show, and it was lovely to see another flower named after her. What an honour.

I love her updo AND I am glad she was not wearing her nude pumps.

The print is a bit much, so I'm not fond of the dress.

I don't like the print of the dress, I don't like the shape. I think that it overwhelms Sophie's delicate good looks.

Great color and I do like how she is trying new styles lately but I am no fan of the top part of the dress.

I'm not keen on either of the last two outfits but I love the hair. She has become really adept at ringing the changes and at least it is never boring.
