The Countess of Wessex joins Prince Edward in a bold dress and statement shoes

Royal ladies love to wear pretty petal patterns, particularly in the summer. There's nothing like a few blooms to raise our mood! It's not just Sophie, the Duchess of Cambridge often steps out in fancy florals and the likes of Queen Letizia and Princess Beatrice and Eugenie are also huge fans of the natural print. Even the Queen has been known to don a floral pattern on occasions.
