"Very bold for her, love it!" one royal fashion fan reacted, while another wrote: "She looks absolutely beautiful in that dress."

Another added: "I think leather dresses can be hard to pull off... but this works. I like the shirt she paired under it."

Sophie also visited The Halow Project this week

Sophie has continued her busy schedule of engagements this week, also stepping out at The Halow Project in Surrey on Tuesday. She looked stylish once again in her MaxMara blazer, a pair of green wide-leg trousers, and a camel polo neck jumper.

The Countess, who has been embracing a bouncier hair look of late, also wore her blonde locks in tight curls, pinned back in a half-up style. More please, Your Royal Highness!
