Hard to believe Sophie is over 50. She looks so youthful without being botoxed up. If she has had any work done, it is very subtle.
She has some very flattering lighting in these pictures. Check out her outdoors, natural lighting, she looks her age and very well preserved at that.

I like the blue outfit, especially the neck and the way the top is cut on the bias

The Earl and Countess of Wessex held a dinner Windsor Castle to thank those who helped the @DofE Awards in their Diamond Anniversary year.

Very Elegant the Countess!!

Usually, the combo black and pink seems to work. In this case, I am not sure... Have to think over the look.

Not a fan of that color or material on Sophie. Great color for Louise.

Nice colors on both. I just wish these were true 3/4 sleeves, rather than just this bit longer than 3/4 and bit shorter than full length.

I would never have predicted a suit for Louise and I like it!

Beautiful coat, color and style IMO. The black trim on the coat is lovely. She looked great today.

All looking good, though don't think Sophie's coast it that great as I'm not a fan of the 'casual' style. Louise looks good but find it a bit odd they are dressing her in a Hobbs outfit, a very middle aged brand for someone so young.

Sophie looks lovely. I love the pink and black. Nice coat

I even don't mind the pillbox on her. Like Mathilde or Max, some women can pull them off without looking aging. Still not my favorite style hat but works for her. Much prefer over one of her fascinators.

The color and style of the coat are very nice but the sleeves are an odd length. Very much dislike the crow like feathers of the hat

I don't know. I would have not expected the combo of the blouse and pants. I think it is the hairstyle that put me off, though.

I like the pants and jacket but I'm not sure if they go together well. And I agree, her hair needs to be tended to, that may be putting me off as well.

Great look! Love the pants especially! Casual hair perfect. Overall great look imo. (Get me those pants!)

I love the style and pattern of the pants, but way too wide. Reminds me of Steohanie.

The top is great. But it looks horrid with the pants. They are both loose. She looks much wider then she is. If the top or pants were more fitted, the look would be so much better.

Not her usual sleek put together look. Even her hair is off.
