The Duchess of Edinburgh demonstrated her expertise in changing outfits as she participated in three royal engagements on Wednesday. Each engagement was accompanied by a meticulously selected ensemble.
She started the day wearing a hand-painted floral tea dress from Suzannah London for the NHS' 75th anniversary service at Westminster Abbey.
Later, she changed into a second floral dress by Emilia Wicksetad to watch a performance of ‘Orb and Sceptre' by the Household Division on Horse Guards Parade.
Finally, Duchess Sophie visited King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to inaugurate a new training academy. She captivated royal fans by wearing a sheer belted dress from ME+EM, one of her favorite brands.
Photographs captured the Duchess with a radiant smile as she cut into a towering NHS-themed birthday cake during the celebration.
These events were part of a series of celebratory royal activities commemorating the 75th year of the National Health Service.
The spouse of Prince Edward emulated the Princess of Wales' fondness for polka-dots by choosing to wear a cream-colored dress called the ‘Polka Dot Print Dress.'
This charming garment, crafted from semi-sheer georgette fabric, was adorned with delicate dotted prints throughout. It boasted an exquisite tiered skirt and a refined button-down bodice.
Complementing her attire, the Duchess elegantly styled her golden blonde hair in a half-up, half-down fashion and applied a touch of mascara to accentuate her captivating ocean blue eyes.
One admirer of royal fashion shared their thoughts on social media, saying, “Sometimes, all it takes is a simple and beautiful white dress.
Sophie looks stunning.” Another individual agreed, stating, “Sophie looks lovely in this beautifully updated classic dress! It's timeless!” A third fan chimed in, adding, “She looks understated, yet incredibly pretty in it.”
The Duchess of Edinburgh has garnered praise for her commendable sustainable fashion choices, often opting to rewear her favorite garments multiple times over the years.
She has even graciously allowed her 19-year-old daughter, Lady Louise Windsor, to borrow items from her coveted wardrobe.
One notable instance was when Sophie first unveiled the ME+EM dress in 2021 during her attendance at the WI's Annual Meeting.
It made another appearance in the royal limelight at Wimbledon that same year when the Duchess, accompanied by Princess Beatrice, observed the Ladies' Singles Semi-Final matches on Centre Court.
Previously retailing for £295, Sophie's polka-dot dress from a previous season has now sold out on the luxury womenswear brand's website.
