Sophie looked absolutely gorgeous in her £225 striped, floaty shirt dress from the brand royal ladies are loving at the moment – ME+EM.

Sophie's frock features the brand's signature double piping side stripe with a contrasting stripe pattern on the inside. The drawcord belt with gold toggles also helped to accentuate her trim waist.

Completing her look, Sophie recycled her trusty black Sophie Habsburg 'Lunatic' clutch bag and added her gorgeous pair of Penelope Chilvers 'Agatha' navy leather sandals.

She kept her makeup to a minimum and wore her blonde hair in a half-up-half-down style as she posed for photos alongside her husband and children from the school.

This is the second time this week Sophie has turned to ME+EM for a royal outing. On Wednesday, she chose the stunning 'Polka Dot Printed Maxi Dress' as she attended the WI's Annual Meeting.

The £295 design is made in a beautiful cream tone and comes complete with subtle balloon sleeves, a deep shirt cuff, a button front, grandad collar, drawcord waist and is finished with a pleated skirt.

Last month, Sophie also turned to the brand to celebrate International Nurses Day 2021, wearing a dazzling navy blue midi dress which again, had an on-trend pleated skirt, and a built-in, zip-up top.

Cotton Summer Stripe Midi Dress, £225, ME+EM


ME+EM is really having a moment right now with the royal ladies - the Duchess of Cambridge wore one of their frocks only last month.

During the royal tour of Scotland, Kate invited little Mila Sneddon and her family to the Queen’s official Edinburgh home and wore an eye-catching pink outfit that matched the five-year-old's dress - after the youngster had told her it was her favourite colour. The silk shirt dress costs £450 and looked incredible on the mother-of-three.
