On Thursday, the Countess of Wessex enjoyed a visit to The Countryside Education Trust in Beaulieu, Hampshire. The royal braved the wind and rain for her official engagement, where she met with children to discover more about the Trust’s mission is to connect people with the countryside.
For her outing, Countess Sophie rocked some navy fitted trousers and a practical raincoat with apricot piping and a hood – ideal for shielding herself from the classic English downpour. She wrapped up extra warm in a light grey scarf, tucking her blonde locks into her accessory to avoid a frizz-tastic hair situation.
