The Countess of Wessex made a special visit to a local pub near her home on Wednesday, looking elegant in a tonal outfit for the relaxed engagement. Sophie popped into the Half Moon in Windlesham, which is just a short drive from her and Prince Edward's home, Bagshot Park. In a pastel pink midi skirt – which may have been a dress underneath – and a fine knit maroon jumper, the royal looked beautiful in her colour block look, which she finished with her Penelope Chilvers wedges.

The Countess wore a gorgeous tonal outfit
Glowing Sophie wore her makeup soft and natural as always, showing off what was perhaps a hint of a sun tan following the warmer weather in the UK. She left her blonde hair loose and chatted happily to customers at the pub as well as its landlord and staff, learning how the business has been affected during lockdown, and the new measures in place for re-opening.

Sweetly, the royal also added a personal touch to her outfit – wearing her personalised necklace that bears the initials 'E' for her husband Prince Edward, an 'L' for her daughter Lady Louise Windsor and a 'J' for her son, James, Viscount Severn. She added her Lucia Odescalchi disc earrings, too.

The Countess also met with fellow members of the Bagshot Women's Institute in the pub garden, hearing how they have been supporting the local community through sewing scrub bags and PPE, and baking for key workers.
Sophie is now the second royal to have visited a pub as the coronavirus lockdown eases, following Prince William, who stopped by the Rose & Crown in Snettisham earlier in July.
Volunteering at a charity shop in June
While the royal family returned to in-person duties in recent weeks, the Countess made a number of visits throughout the coronavirus lockdown, volunteering with local causes and raising awareness for important charities.
In June, she joined staff on the shop floor of Shooting Star Children's Hospices' Weybridge charity shop, helping to sort through donations before putting them out on display.
