Duchess Sophie rocked a major style switch-up when she arrived at The Seashell Trust in Cheadle, Greater Manchester on Wednesday.

The Duchess of Edinburgh, 59, was spotted wearing a super stylish bright white blazer with double-breasted buttons which featured a figure-flattering slim fit.

Sophie styled the fresh summer staple with a pair of chic tweed wide-leg trousers in shades of black, white, and pale blue which had a frayed hem.

Prince Edward's wife leaned fully into a spring aesthetic when she swapped her go-to heeled boots for a pair of white and tan wedges.

Rounding off the mother-of-two's look was an ivory mini boxy handbag. As per usual, her dainty jewellery added another touch of elegance. On this occasion, Sophie wore a pair of circular drop earrings and a silver pendant necklace. 

Her blonde locks were styled in a lovely updo and her makeup was rosy in tone with false lashes applied for an extra sprinkle of glamour.

The royal was seen meeting staff and students of The Seashell Trust which supports children and young adults with complex learning difficulties and disabilities. Sophie even tried her hand at riding an adaptive tricycle.

Duchess Sophie's recent outings

Sophie was seen just the day before alongside her husband during a visit to the first-ever memorial statue of his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II in Rutland. 

She was seen wearing a pair of deep green fitted trousers with a mid-length cream coat and a pair of cream loafers. The star of the show was her unexpected bright orange handbag.

The summer-ready accessory from Sophie Habsburg featured a tan strap adorned with unusual buttons. 

The royal looked immaculate when she wore her go-to tea dress aesthetic to an event supporting the skin charity Debra UK. She was seen donning the 'Allover Exotic Floral-Print Silk Dress in Navy' from Etro which featured a tapered waistline, ruched capped sleeves, and a floaty skirt. 

Duchess Sophie's Royal Horse Show fashion

The week before, Duchess Sophie was spotted daily at the Royal Horse Show at Windsor. The highlights of her sartorial choices include her suede biker jacket from Paige which was teamed with a navy corduroy dress from Aspiga London and an Isabel Marant bag.

We also loved the addition of her Hermès silk twilly scarf which was tied in her hair for a youthful look.
