Duchess Sophie looked as radiant as ever as she stepped out for a jam-packed day in Staffordshire with her husband Prince Edward.

The Duchess of Edinburgh, 59, looked stunning in a longline cashmere ivory coat by Joseph which was styled with the 'Fallon Wool Blend Roll Neck Dress in Oatmeal' by Reiss which had a turtleneck and had a bodycon fit from the waist down.

The royal paired the neutral ensemble with the chicest warm brown accessories. Sophie chose to don her ‘Oskan Moon Stud-Embellished Leather Shoulder Bag' in the shade 'Cognac' by Isabel Marant which, as the name would suggest, was in the shape of a crescent moon.

She coordinated the timeless bag with a pair of killer boots that added another element of warmth to the icy look. She rocked the 'Piper 85' knee-high boots by Gianvito Rossi which were in a chestnut brown suede with a pointed toe and had a block heel.

As she so often does for daytime engagements, Sophie wore her hair in a soft updo with plenty of volume at the root which showed off her dainty pave diamond earrings by Amrapali Jewels.

The Duchess was spotted alongside the Duke of Edinburgh for a two-engagement day. Firstly the pair headed to the Right Stuff Amateur Boxing Club where they met staff and young boxers from the centre and even witnessed some sporting action in the ring. In particular, Sophie was seen chatting with National Youth Champion Amy Nolan.

Later that day the royal couple headed to the Rising Brook Community Church where she met members of the open house community group for over 65s. Prince Edward was seen speaking to nurses from the centre whilst Sophie helped pack a food parcel at the food bank there.

As the royal couple left the centre they were seen saying goodbye to a stream of children from Flash Ley Primary School in bright blue school uniforms.

The couple were spotted on a joint outing in February. The pair attended the British Cycling National Track Championships at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester where Sophie stunned in navy, once again adding tan accessories.

The royal sported a structured navy blazer by Alexander McQueen with gold buttons and boxy shoulder pads. She paired the blazer with a pair of navy cigarette trousers.

She broke up the navy with the 'Ruched-Sleeve Striped Cashmere Sweater in Camel Multi' by Frame which was in white and tan. Tying the look together was a pair of block-heel ankle boots in brown leather by Prada and carried her staple Isabel Marant bag.

The ever-stylish royal rocked another navy look last month but with a totally different feel. The mother-of-two visited the London College of Fashion where she wowed in the 'Marione Belted-Waist Wool Midi Dress in Navy and Black Prince of Wales Check' by Emilia Wickstead.
