I love her Ladies Day hat choice. It's so big, epic and so Sophie. The dress is nice but the colour is an odd choice. The dress also has pockets, which is an odd thing. They were perhaps added at Sophie's request.

The ensemble is quite lovely. The colour is unexpectedly dark though. I liked the hat.

I wasn't a huge fan of Day One's outfit. I'm not so sure about the material, although the colour is nice. Day Two's outfit is great. Sophie looked elegant and her hat was just right. Today's outfit was nice and elegant too, although there's something about it that's not quite right, and I can't put my finger on it. The dress reminds me of Edwardian women's dresses.

It looks too big on her...it swallows her. Love the style and color..but it doesn't fit her right.

Yesterday's white and today's black were brave choices from Sophie. That's why I like Sophie - she isn't afraid to go a bit mad with her colour and hat choices. Today's hat was beautiful. I am bit disappointed Edward wasn't there as it was their anniversary. Would have been nice to see them together. Maybe he was busy getting the house ready for a World Cup party!

Yes, what is she doing with this kind of length on all these dresses? Starting a trend? I liked the collar and the material of the dress - not the skirt or length. Someone mentioned the 1950's and I agree - this is all very retro.

Loved the hat - this one is a winner imo.

Just so - would have been nice to see them together on such a day.

I thought the blue dress on Day 3 worked very well. Still a bit undecided about the length for a day event, bit the rest of the dress worked very well, IMO.

I like this outfit very much, but i quibble with the sleeve length [elbow length sleeves would be much prettier !]

This is exactly the style i wish the York princesses would adopt on special occasions !!!!

The hat is especially good.

Day 3 outfit is nice. The hat is awesome but the dress is too long imo.

I think Sophie's scarf/feather boa from Garter Day is a repeat which was first seen at a festival in honour of the 60th anniversary of HM's coronation, which took place at Buckingham Palace last year:

Sophie in 2013 and Sophie at this year's Garter Ceremony.

Sophie in a partly recycled outfit visiting the Riverhill Regeneration project in Cobham today, July 9 - I like it much better this time, the unicoloured jacket makes the look more elegant and quiet:

I agree. I like it, too.

While I see what you mean, I'm not totally off this ensemble. Had she worn a string of pearls - or something 'grander' - it would have been more interesting. I think the 'open' neck was too open and was a distraction.

Fabulous outfit for her, the skirt length and jacket length are really perfect for her. Now all she needs is a bit more lift up top, as usual.

Love it. More elegant than the first look- although I liked that one too.

I like both versions. This one is more simple, more "washed out" by the white jacket but very nice too. The other was not so easy in the eyes at the beginning but I liked it too.
