Sophie, Countess of Wessex wowed fans as she stepped out in a lovely satin dress. The royal was attending an exciting event in London yesterday evening.

Like the rest of the royal ladies, Sophie, Countess of Wessex always demonstrates an impeccable sense of style.

The Queen’s daughter-in-law, who is married to the monarch’s youngest son Prince Edward, is up there with the likes of Duchess Camilla, Duchesses Catherine and Meghan, and of course Sarah, Duchess of York when it comes to her sartorial choices.

And yesterday the royal stunned fans when she stepped out in a gorgeous satin dress for an exciting London event.

Sophie visited the capital’s Mayfair area, as she attended the premiere for film Sulphur and White, which took place in aid of the NSPCC.

And the royal arrived looking elegantly glamorous as she stepped onto the red carpet wearing a slinky emerald satin gown.

The beautiful number featured three-quarter length sleeves and a high polo neck, while coming down to a midi length.

The Countess of Wessex was seen meeting with cast and crew of the film, including female protagonists Anna Friel and Emily Beecham, as well as main star Mark Stanley, who has previously acted in Game of Thrones, Sanditon and the Star Wars film franchise.

The movie follows the actors’ characters the Tait family and is based on the real lives of City trader and mountaineer David Tait, who hides a cohort of traumatic secrets behind his professional successes.

She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a Rioja- and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she stalked the royals via breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.

Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a good slathering of SPF and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines. Being a product specialist on a brand for bold women (and living the single life) means that Aleesha also knows a thing or two about the must-buy sex toys, so she relishes in unleashing her inner Carrie Bradshaw on our sex & relationships pages.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group.
