"Having The Countess on our team is an important step for RAD. I know that Her Royal Highness is committed to helping us to create greater awareness of the threats created by this terrible disease and to support the hugely important research that we back. Working to fund a cure for dementia is one of the greatest challenges I have ever faced," he wrote.

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