Duchess Sophie stepped out for a solo outing on Wednesday, rolling her sleeves up for a day at the farm. 

Prince Edward's wife, 59, was seen recycling her super-structured navy wool coat from Bally. The garment featured a cinched waistline, thanks to a buckle-adorned tie belt, as well as buttoned epaulets to match the gold buttoned pockets.

To add a touch of glamour, Prince Edward's wife popped on a pair of stunning brown leather boots in a mahogany hue to match her 'Lunatic Clutch' from Sophie Habsburg, her go-to handbag maker.

To round off her look, Sophie styled her sandy blonde locks in a soft updo, framing her face perfectly. Her do also showed off her intricate 'Changing Berlin Earrings' from Lucia Odescalchi Jewels. 

Her makeup was kept minimal with just a wash of pale pink eyeshadow and a lick of mascara - not a lipstick or gloss in sight.

The royal stepped out for a visit to Yeo Valley Farm in Blagdon. She was seen taking a stroll with head gardener Sarah Mead having gone to the Field to Food Learning Day at the Bath and West Show Ground in Shepton Mallet.

Sophie was seen with the pigs, exuding her natural warmth surrounded by local children who were enjoying the day out. The Duchess has been the patron of the Association of Show and  Agricultural Organisations since 2012.

The outing comes just 10 days after the Duchess' uber chic moment in icy blue at the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace which commemorated the 120th anniversary of the Entente Cordiale - the diplomatic agreement between Britain and France which laid the groundwork for historic Anglo-French relations.

Sophie looked supremely elegant in 'Custodi' coat in a sand shade from Max Mara - a double-breasted longline number. The star of the show was her pale cornflour blue ankle-skimming dress with a bow on the shoulder from Roland Mouret.

Topping off her look was a pair of blush pink suede court shoes from Prada, as well as a colour-blocked blue and ivory bag from Strathberry. Her hair was worn in a neat low bun with wavy face-framing pieces that showed off her dainty blue gemstone earrings.

The royal has made wearing a fabulous coat a habit of late. She was seen entering St George's Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle with her husband and her 16-year-old son James, Earl of Wessex on Easter Sunday earlier this month looking gorgeous in purple.

She recycled her vivid purple coat from Prada with gold buttons down the front and a sharp collar. She paid homage to her 20-year-old daughter Lady Louise who was absent due to her commitments as a student at the University of St Andrews by wearing her beret-style fascinator.
