She wore the dress last year.
Sophie Countess of Wessex Pictures - Diamond Jubilee - Service Of Thanksgiving - Zimbio

According to this the hat is new.
British Royals Attend Order of the Garter | Royal Hats

I like the new hat today better than the one she wore with this dress/suit last year. I didn't like the black hat and brown feathers with a blue suit.

The Countess looked superb for the Garter Day festivities. I loved the dress when I saw it last year, and that hasn't changed. The hat is not bad. It does look better when one is looking straight at Sophie.

I really like her dress! I am on the fence about her hat, however.

I do love a bit of navy blue, my favourite clothing colour. Not sure I liked the black shoes paired with the dress though. I always thought black and blue was a fashion no-no.... I do love those shoes though.

I liked her hat, it's very "Sophie" and her hairstyle was beautiful.

I love the colour of the ensemble, and I need to see the bottom skirt/dress to give my final judgement, haha. I love her hat though and her earrings and the addition of her brooch.

I love the color and the jewelry as well. Hopefully we'll see a full-length picture of Sophie from today at some point.

I have to say I am in two minds now over this ensemble.... I can't help but think it looks a bit matronly, but I LOVE the colour.

The teal blue is stunning, but I don't like the style; it does look somewhat matronly. I don't think I like the beige accessories with the outfit, either.

I love the teal blue and love the top, but I don't like the fitted middle.

Now that I've seen the full outfit, I have to say that the color and the hat are the only redeeming qualities for me. The style ages Sophie quite a bit.

The colour is great but there is too much going on. Gathers from bust to waist; pleats at the side; wide at the hem; fitted at the top; fold at the neck ....... Its just too much.

Love the color and the hat, but the style is too old for Sophie.

I totally agree with cepe. Way too much going on. I do like her hat.

I love this very retro-inspired dress- it reminds me of some of Lady Sarah Chatto's clothing. The style is too old for Sophie or makes her look matronly? She is 48 years old and she is a matron!

Yes, too much going on for a woman of her size. Puts on the pounds. Love the earrings though.

Yup, cepe - and it is also not that flattering. I do love how Sophie backs her bets though. She is into it!
