Sophie, 57, was every inch the doting mother as she whipped out her smartphone to take photos of her 18-year-old daughter carriage driving, offering onlookers a full look at her elegant outfit in the process. The Countess teamed her double-breasted, gold-buttoned blazer with a white midi skirt featuring oversized pocket detailing. She wore her jacket buttoned up and layered over a pink shirt.
