The Duchess looked stunning at this event as she paired a crisp white shirt with a camel wool blazer from ME + EM. This wool blazer was the perfect look for spring, the thick wool material meant that the Duchess could stay warm in the breezy weather, but the light color of the material still created a beautiful summery feel to the look.
The Duchess also wore a bright gold brooch pinned into her blazer which perfectly matched her other jewelry items. Her circular gold earrings were a re-wear that the Duchess has owned for many years from the brand Lucia Odescalchi. The Duchess paired these gold circular earrings with a delicate necklace that was also circular in shape and matched her earrings and brooch perfectly.

This is Sophie's exact blazer. A soft neutral combined with a supersoft Italian recycled wool-blend yarn grants this blazer forever status. Endlessly wearable, it's detailed with a mock double-breasted fastening stitched with military-inspired buttons in a tarnished-gold finish, elevating off-duty and office-bound outfitting with ease.

The Duchess then changed out of her delightful spring look and took on an entirely different ensemble all together. The Duchess protected her clothes and head by changing into a helmet and a bright white boiler suit.
While this look wasn't as fetching as her springtime blazer ensemble, it did keep the Duchess dry and clean as she chatted with personnel and viewed the progress of the HMS Daring's refit and upkeep by the Royal Navy.
