Sophie Wessex pink suit and dress, worn during engagements in Scotland, show how versatile the hardworking royal's favorite shade, pink, truly is. 

  • Sophie Wessex pink suit was part one of a rose colored day for the royal, who chose to wear a blush shade later on in a more formal setting.
  • The hardworking royal appears to be quite the fan of the shade, having worn it a lot recently - including at the Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022.
  • In other royal news, 

Sophie Wessex pink suit may be very smart and elegant, but the much-loved royal had no problem getting her hands dirty during an engagement in Scotland. As the Queen's children step up, to support Her Majesty while she takes a step back from her duties, their spouses are getting just as involved.

You'd think that, on the same day that her daughter Lady Louise finishes her exams, the Countess might want to take a well-deserved break. Instead of focussing on Lady Louise's life-altering decision, she rolled up her sleeves, dug holes, and baked cakes. Well, sort of.

During a visit to one of Capability Scotland's centers, Sophie got involved with some of the activities enjoyed by the community that Capability supports. The wonderful organization delivers care, support, and education for disabled children and adults, that is tailored to the person's individual needs. 

Just when you thought Sophie Wessex polka dot dress was the summer look of dreams, she may have outdone herself with her incredible pink dress, worn during The Ceremony of the Keys in Edinburgh. You're probably wondering which pink dress, as Lady Louise's royal fashion icon shows - pink is the shade for every occasion.

Although Kate Middleton and Sophie Wessex once bonded over a hilarious Ascot mishap, it's clear that there's another thing they share. They're both shaping the style of the next generation of young royals. Lady Louise's dress at the Platinum Jubilee was enhanced by a headband, echoing Kate Middleton's go-to hair accessory. Said headband also adorably matched Sophie's dress on the day in question.

As summer sets in and pairing sun safety with high glam becomes a necessity, this time the Countess paired her gown with a magnificently dramatic hat.
