Countess Sophie surprises at new engagement in camouflage dress – and it's half price in the sale

We love this dress on Sophie!

The Countess of Wessex has made an in-person engagement at Childline – and we are so in love with her quirky camouflage dress! The royal visited the organisation on Wednesday to thank staff and volunteers for their vital work supporting young people during the pandemic, wearing her gorgeous green dress from French Connection. Even better, it's still available to buy – and is half price in the sale.

Sophie looks beautiful in the new photos, which show her joining a counselling shift to see first-hand the lifeline the service offers to vulnerable children. Wearing strappy heels and with her blonde hair swept up in a butterfly clip, it looks like the Countess was happy to be back attending royal engagements! She follows the likes of Prince William, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in making an in-person visit as the coronavirus guidelines ease.

The Countess also wore her French Connection buy during a virtual appearance from her home of Bagshot Park, when she dialed into a chat with the Thames Valley Air Ambulance. This is certainly one of our favourite outfits on Sophie!
