Prince Edward and the Countess of Wessex are currently overseas for a trip to the Cayman Islands and we are loving the blonde beauty's wardrobe so far!

On Tuesday, the mother-of-two and her husband were greeted by HE the Governor Mr. Martyn Roper, Mrs. Roper, Premier Panton, Mrs. Panton and the rest of Cabinet at Owen Roberts at International Airport. They were then escorted to Government House, where a special reception featuring persons from throughout the Cayman Islands community was held in their honour. Check out Sophie in another dress moment in our video below.

Sophie wore a variety of outfits that day, but our favourite has to be this glorious dress by high end brand Zimmermann, which we think you will agree; is pretty epic.

Known as the 'Vitali printed linen dress' it costs, £735 and Matches, the designer brand that stocks the frock, says of the style: "Part of Zimmermann's nautical-inspired High Tide collection, this blue Vitali dress is woven from printed linen shaped with billowing sleeves and a cinched waist.."
