On Wednesday afternoon, the Countess of Wessex jetted to Sierra Leone, on a two-day royal visit. Her first port of call was the Peace Museum in Freetown where she greeted workers, checked out the exhibit and smiled for photographers. Looking as stylish as always, the 55-year-old sported a gorgeous floral printed blouse, which she teamed with a pair of white cropped jeans, and some fabulous terracotta espadrilles by one of her favourite shoe brands, Penelope Chilvers. With her trademark blonde locks styled in a trendy, half-up, half-down style, the royal also sported a fresh, neutral base and subtle touches of makeup.
