This is not one of my favorites either, but I wonder if she wore black because she was presenting the Queen's Vase in memory of Sir Henry Cecil - it has been less than two weeks since his death. They also observed two minutes of silence for him either on the first or second day of Ascot.

A minutes silence on Tuesday (the first day) was observed. I'll be surprised if that's the reason, Lady Cecil wore navy and cream.

She looks very lovely, adore the hat. The overall silhouette looks like maternity to me, however.

Yesterday and today were both loose fitting. Both seemed to not be the usual choice we see from Sophie. I'm perplexed.

I did love the fabric and buttons of the top today - just not the style.

While I always love black this I too think looks maternity from long ago. I do like the hat. This top (jacket) could be remade to be really gorgeous as the fabric is great.

I agree that it looks like a maternity top. I am not a fan of it and I hope that her trip this week she pulls it out of the bag!

I didn't like the lace dress Sophie wore in Bulgaria. She's become so fit and slim, but the dress actually made her look thick around the middle. It was also too sheer. Otherwise, I think she's been looking great lately.

I am not a fan of that dress much either, and as someone said on another forum - it looks like lingerie.

Her necklace is also very pretty.

From what I can see, Sophie's dress looks lovely. I would love to see more of it!

Nice dress and necklace to go with it. Not enough support up top.
