The elegant Countess of Wessex was a prominent figure at the late Queen’s wider family gathering at Sandringham yesterday.
Sophie, the wife of her younger son, Prince Edward, was poking out from under a beige wide-brimmed hat that perfectly matched her belted woolen coat.
She completed the outfit with brown leather boots and an oversized handbag.
The Countess became the Queen’s “second daughter” in the late King’s late years as the couple walked their dogs together and shared a love of military history.
Sophie’s choice: She opted for a beige wrap-around coat and fedora hair, with an envelope clutch and leather shoes.
The 57-year-old countess walked to church with her student daughter Lady Louise, 19, who attended the University of St Andrews last term, looking dapper in a blue jacket, coat and heels.
Her husband entered with their son James, Viscount Severn, 15 years old.
There was a host of other descendants of Queen Elizabeth and their families, led by Princess Beatrice, 34.
She showed off the modern face of the property when she arrived alongside her husband, Edu Mapele Mozi, and stepfather, Wolfie, who tends to spend alternate years with his mom and dad. The young man’s mother is Mr. Mapelli Mozzi’s ex-fiancée, architect Dara Huang.
Beatrice and Edo also had a daughter named Sienna, who together at 15 months was too young to join the family.

Beatrice’s sister Princess Eugenie, 32, was also in attendance, along with husband Jack Brooksbank. But, again, their son August, who will turn two in February, has stayed home.
The Tyndalls — Princess Anne’s daughter Zara, and her husband, former England rugby captain Mike — walked to church with their two eldest children, Mia and Lena, ages eight and four.
Zara’s burgundy hat and heels matched Lena’s coat, while Mia had the same color in her headband. Zara’s brother, Peter Phillips, was also there with his daughters, Isla and Savannah.
Prince Andrew also made a surprise appearance alongside other royals, as he was not previously expected to attend the service.
Back a bit from the main group, he waved to the crowd and was seen shaking hands with one, although at least one other member seemed unhappy to see the disgraced Duke of York.
