The blonde royal stole the show as she arrived, rocking the most beautiful velvet evening dress. We adored the cut; it was close-fitting and featured a ruffled hem, wide lapels and a V-neckline. The colour looked almost two-tone in the light and was a really dazzling piece. She added dark high heel shoes and carried a majorly sparkly clutch bag. Silver jewellery gave the look a glistening kick.

We loved the mother-of-two's hair; it was lightly curled and teased into a half-up, half-down style. Her makeup had an iridescent feel and she also sported dark eyeliner too.

Sophie was a vision of elegance on Sunday's show, where she appeared alongside her daughter, Lady Louise Windsor.

Sophie looked sensational in her velvet dress

The 57-year-old stepped out in a stunning velvet coat from Laurie & Jules and a matching hat as she rode a carriage behind her teenage daughter at the equestrian event. The royal's royal blue ensemble featured a striking pie-crust neckline, flattering structured shoulders and piped detailing with silver buttons.

The royal swept her blonde hair into an elegant up-do, wearing her tresses in a low bun placed neatly beneath the brim of her co-ordinating velvet hat. The Countess accessorised her figure-flattering ensemble with statement pearl cluster earrings, adding a natural bronze eyeshadow, rosy blush and soft pink lip to complete her ageless beauty glow.
