Countess of Wessex brings back summer dress for day of meetings

Prince Edward's wife looked so elegant in the sleeveless style

The Countess of Wessex brought back one of our favourite ensembles from last summer as she carried out engagements on Tuesday. Sophie, 56, looked elegant in a repeat geometric dress in black, white and orange hues from DVF Diane von Furstenberg.

She first wore the frock when she sat for a live sculpting session with Frances Segelman as part of a special event for the Vision Foundation last September.

On this occasion, the Countess teamed the sleeveless dress with a smart black blazer and her blonde locks were styled in loose waves.

The royal mum-of-two attended a Vision for the Commonwealth Event via video call in her role as Global Ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.

Later that day, she sported the same outfit to attend a meeting with Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, at the Foreign and Commonwealth and Development Office.

Mr Raab shared a photograph from their meeting in a tweet, writing: "Welcome meeting with HRH Countess of Wessex to discuss preventing sexual violence in conflict and increasing women’s participation in peace processes. Together we are committed to supporting survivors and bringing perpetrators to justice."
