The practicality of Sophie's slick outfit didn't detract from her unparalleled sense of style. Looking the part, the 57-year-old royal donned a pair of 'Burford Waterproof Rubber Boots' from Ariat International and teamed her outdoorsy look with a stunning double-breasted blazer from ME + EM.

Sophie's 'Satin Cotton AM - PM' blazer featured colour-contrasting button detailing that added a contemporary touch to her light khaki outerwear, and perfectly complemented her layers of delicate gold accessories.

Looking as radiant as ever, Sophie wore her glossy blonde hair in a half-up, half-down style, highlighting her naturally pretty features and ageless complexion. Simply stunning!
