22nd to 24th September 2013 Countess of Wessex will visit Qatar.
 
Again nothing official yet.

The information is on the British Royal Families future engagements page, if it wasn't on there, then it wouldn't be official. It's possible her visit to Qatar will be moved to the Qatar RF Section, if she's meeting/being met by one of their royals. Both visits will have little to no coverage frankly.

Stunning photos. The ones of her in the blue and white outfit look like postcards. She looks divine in red.

Has anyone found link to pics from today at Zimbio? I cannot locate them..
She looks wonderful today, as well as on all other days :)
Lace dress is new, couldn't ID it so far, the blue one for sure looks like Roland Mouret, found similar ones but nothing exactly the same.

Molly2101 09-23-2013 03:48 PM

I love her lace dress, it's beautiful. It looks a lot like the red one Sophie had when she was in Czech Republic, but I am not sure. I can see she may have sparkly shoes on with the navy dress... I love all the scarves she has paired with the ensembles. The feel of the clothes makes me think she thought about the trip and where it was, hence the floaty clothes.

Sophie looks beautiful as always and it's always lovely to see the wedding earrings getting a turn.

I don't like the lace dress actually but the blue is very nice. IMO

I love the photos of Sophie with the 3D glasses on! I hope she has enjoyed her time in India and Qatar and I hope her visit will raise awareness for the ORBIS charity and the Flying Eye Hospital.

Thanks @ everyone for sharing all the pictures from Sophie´s visit to Qatar :flowers:
She looked absolutely amazing and so relaxed and joyful, I guess she was having a good time :-) I love all of her outfit choices, especially the blue-white combination she wore for visiting the MOMA, very elegant and also appropriate for a more conservative country like Qatar.
Hopefully this visit will help to create more awareness for the cause and generate some donations for ORBIS and other organisations that are actively involved in the prevention and treatment of blindness!

annaelfka 09-24-2013 10:45 AM

I think this visit was a big success, Countess and everyone around her enjoyed that visit, including myself. Chris Jackson did an amazing job with his pictures, and I do believe Countess did raise awarness for saving sight and helped Orbis. It's a bit sad this visit ends.
As for dresses, lace one is Valentino and blue one is Roland Mouret as suspected.
I love most of Countess outfits. The least I liked the one from the first day, but rest was really perfect, especially for the countries she visited.

I did not realise her Paris dress was in fact two separate pieces of clothing. Sophie has paired the top half with lovely trousers today.

This visit has been great and I am pleased the amount of coverage it received. The Wessex's work goes unnoticed and unappreciated far too often.
