Since Friday, April 22, the Earl and Countess of Wessex are traveling in the Caribbean, on the occasion of the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II. This Saturday, April 23, Sophie of Wessex appeared resplendent in a floral dress.
Prince Edward and his wife, Sophie of Wessex, arrived in Hewanorra, on the island of St. Lucia, in the West Indies, on the occasion of the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II which will mark her 70 years of reign. For the second day of this royal tour, this Saturday, April 23, and after having stood out in a red blazer dress the day before, the Countess of Wessex has, once again, attracted all eyes. Wearing a bun, she was dressed in a long dress with white short sleeves with flowers of the brand Soler Villamarie estimated at 430 euros, as reported by The Express. An outfit she wore with leather sandals Penelope Chilvers ‘Jackie’ of brown color whose price is estimated at less than 140 euros. A pair of shoes that Sophie de Wessex wears for several years. A look that she accessorized with a pendant necklace, a gold bracelet and blue drop earrings, perfectly in line with the floral dress.
Still according to The Express, Louise and James’ mom had bent the royal protocol by displaying a brightly colored polish on her toes. Sophie of Wessex is not the only member of the firm to defy the prohibitions. Kate Middleton also appeared, a few weeks ago, during her trip to Belize with Prince William, with red varnish on her foot. A real revolution in the British Crown!
Rules of dress for members of the royal family
During their trip, Sophie of Wessex and her husband, Prince Andrew, must respect certain rules, especially in terms of style. “There are dozens of protocols in place that the royal family’s stylists and dressers must familiarize themselves with to prevent the royals from getting into embarrassing fashion faux pas,” revealed Daena Borrowman, marketing manager in statements relayed by The Express. She explained, “It is customary for members of the royal family to dress modestly during public appearances, in order to preserve the sanctity of the royal family.”
