The Countess of Wessex takes style cues from Meghan Markle in chic satin skirt

A satin midi skirt is going straight to the top of our shopping list

The Countess of Wessex has dressed to impress throughout her two-day tour of Sierra Leone, stepping out in everything from white jeans to a fabulous green cocktail dress, but her latest ensemble may be our favourite of all. Sophie wore a chic cornflower blue satin midi skirt for a visit to the Aberdeen Women's Clinic in Freetown on Thursday, and we couldn't help but be reminded of the gorgeous Massimo Dutti skirt worn by the Duchess of Sussex only a couple of weeks ago for her visit to Canada House.

While Meghan styled her brown satin midi skirt with a coat and jumper in tonal shades, Sophie gave us a master class in colour blocking by teaming hers with a terracotta-coloured blouse and nude ballet pumps. With her hair tied up into a ponytail and a gold chain and stud earrings to accessorise, Sophie proved the midi skirt is set to be as big a part in your spring-summer wardrobe as it has been throughout winter, and it has gone straight to the top of our shopping list.

It is not the only stylish outfit the Countess has worn during her whistle-stop visit; earlier in the day Sophie stepped out in a pair of seventies-inspired floral wide-leg trousers, while on Wednesday evening she showcased her signature glamour at a reception for UK partners at the British High Commissioner's residence in Freetown. Sophie stole the show in a fabulous pea green cocktail dress, which came from ARoss Girl by Amanda Ross - a US-based label. The 'Brooke' dress - is a past season buy and had a lovely round neck with a split at the hem, as well as short sleeves. It came with an eye-catching, blue and pink sash belt which she tied at the waist, with a pair of Penelope Chilvers heels adding the finishing touches.
