We adore the royal's stunning new look. She rocked a dazzling navy blue midi dress by ME+EM that had an on-trend pleated skirt, and a built in, zip-up top. Clever, right? It gave the whole getup a sports luxe vibe and we think she looks fabulous in it.

WATCH: Sophie, Countess of Wessex, comments on the Queen's colourful style

As always, Sophie added an abundance of classic accessories to make the look her own; a pair of tan ankle boots, a snakeskin clutch bag, gold statement earrings and she finished the look off with a stone-coloured duster jacket. Perfection!

Navy is a great shade on the royal - it's a welcome change from black and always gives a high fashion edge. One of our favourite navy dresses the royal has stepped out in has to be the Azzedine Alaia dress she wore to Princess Eugenie's wedding back in 2018.

The flattering fit and flare shape of the frock was embossed and had a funky crochet neckline. The design expertly cinched the royal in at the waist, and flared out to a full, floaty skirt. Priced at a whopping £2290, it's a timeless design and is definitely one of her favourites; she's re-worn it on a number of occasions.

Also in 2018, the royal held a fashion event at Buckingham Palace for the London College of Fashion's Better Lives project. Sophie, looked incredible in a black pencil skirt, cut with a fishtail hem that was embossed with a red rose print. She said of her style: "I can't claim that my track record in fashion has always been as good as it is today, but you know, we learn in time."
