The 18-year-old was the picture of elegance in a pretty pink and white dress from Reiss that featured a fit-and-flare design, which she paired with a blush-coloured jacket, as she joined her parents Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex, and brother James, Viscount Severn, 14, in a carriage ride down the Mall.

In a sweet nod to her mother, Lady Louise appeared to rummage through Sophie's fashionable archives as she paired her outfit with her mum's beige Philip Treacy hat, which she wore to Trooping the Colour in 2009.

The teenager let her hat take focus as she kept her hair simple, pulling it back into a chic low bun that sat neatly at the nape of her neck.

Complete with long sleeves, a notched collar, and a button-down bodice, Sophie's figure-flattering outfit highlighted her feminine silhouette.

The special Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which marked the Queen's 70 years on the throne, began in style with the special parade, during which the Colour of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards were trooped.


On Horse Guards Parade, the Prince of Wales took the Salute and inspected the Troops of the Household Division on Her Majesty’s behalf, joined by The Duke of Cambridge and The Princess Royal.

The Trooping of the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years.
