We're always keeping an eye out for what the Countess of Wessex is wearing to her royal engagements – the 53-year-old has proved herself something of a style icon in recent years thanks her bold yet elegant fashion choices. And she was back to work on Monday after the weekend's Trooping the Colour in a fab multi-coloured maxi dress that's just perfect for summer nights. Sophie attended a charity dinner at Leeds Children's Hospital wearing a white shirt dress featuring a daring multicoloured llama pattern in pink, aqua, orange and blue. The quirky print has a Latin American feel to it, and is making us dream of exotic travels to warmer climes.
We love the detail on this dress
Sophie teamed the bold Galvan dress, which is currently on sale for £717, with a contrasting silver snakeskin clutch bag and a light blue pashmina to ward off those evening chills. She wore a silver pendant necklace and a matching pair of earrings, and styled her hair in her trademark neat up 'do. She added a subtle smokey eye and kept the rest of her makeup natural.
Earlier in the day the Countess met with patients at the hospital, of which she is patron, and opened a new children's clinical research facility. For her daytime engagements she chose a summer daisy print tea dress by Suzannah, which featured a flattering flared skirt, three quarter length sleeves and a v-cut neckline. She teamed it with nude pointed court shoes.

Over the weekend, the Countess looked stunning in a bold pink ensemble at 2018's Trooping The Colour. The rosy outfit, which is reminiscent in tone to that of the Duchess of Cambridge's iconic pink 2017 dress, was teamed with a contrasting cream hat, and featured striking puff sleeves and an open back. Sophie rode in a carriage alongside her daughter Lady Louise, as well as Princess Beatrice, in matching pink, and Princess Eugenie, who wore an emerald green outfit.
