I love it . . . but judging from the hats, gloves and scarves I was expecting a coat over it.

Let me start by saying that I love this for this venue. I think the print made her visible in a sea of royals.

And is that not just the best part of Christmas at Sandringham - it really is a dead of royals. But I digress.

Having said I like the dress, this one with this fascinator made me just think for one tiny moment that perhaps Sophie has been watching too many Father Brown reruns and channeling Lady Felicia just a tad too much.

It's a great color on the Duchess too! Bless her of braving the cold!

It just occurred to me that Sophie usually drives by car with the Queen. Maybe the change was last minute and she wore her planed dress. I’d have still added a scarf or gloves.

There's a real 50's vibe to that dress. Dior's New Look.

Sophie looks great - dress, hair, shoes, etc, but it brings to mind Patricia Neal in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" handing George Peppard some crisp banknotes and pinching his cheek.

It looks great but looks like she is going to a spring garden party, not the Christmas walk at sandringham before church

Fantastic look. Very retro. Love the color and design

But I agree, looks wrong for event. She looks cold with such short sleeves. Doesn't scream December church walk look.

I concur. She must have been freezing, and not enough time when they were all leaving to go back upstairs to get her coat.

Sophie looks really beautiful and elegant - I love the pattern of her dress. I do agree that it would have been nice to see her wear a coat though, as I don't know about Kings Lynn but here in London, it was incredibly cold.

She looked so elegant as usual she never slips up. The York girls could learn a thing or two from her

Seems like a lovely coat. I love the proper hat, though seems a bit big.

The Countess of Wessex looked timelessly elegant. I like the hat.

I love the handbag but the hat does seem a little large. The coat is right on trend.

Sophie’s hat is by Philip Treacy from 2003. She had a phase of huge hats at the time.

Camilla’s got a similar green one from 2006

Like the Christmas Day outfit, and I like the hat on the 31st, not sure about the coat. Seems a bit shapeless, but that could be the angle.

Sophie looked great at the service - her coat is very classy.
