The Countess of Wessex was photographed out carriage driving at Windsor Castle at the weekend, looking impeccably stylish in the process. Taking the reins, the wife of Prince Edward wore a chocolate brown, billowing trench coat, smart boots, a cosy scarf and a smart baker boy cap. Sophie is a keen rider - as is her 15-year-old daughter Lady Louise Windsor. The pair are both avid carriage drivers and even competed in the Champagne Laurent-Perrier Meet of the British Driving Society in May. The royal looked to be getting her practice in, and her outfit was certainly ideal for the autumnal weather. It was her hat that took our interest in particular though; - it looked very Peaky Blinders-esque. Since the hit TV show hit screens, tailored styles and hats just like this are big news in fashion - so perhaps Sophie has taken inspiration from the show. Who knows!

We last saw the blonde royal on Tuesday, when she participated in The Countess of Wessex Cup 2019 at St John Moore Barracks in Winchester. Sophie may have been dressed casually but she still nailed it, sporting olive green jodhpurs, a knitted jumper, and a camouflage jacket with boots. With her famous blonde hair tied back and amber drop earrings, she still looked amazing.
