Sophie Wessex rewears £295 navy velvet jacket for wheelchair skills lesson today

While the Prince and Princess of Wales are in Boston, Sophie, the Countess of Wessex is holding down the fort in the UK and has been pictured attending a wheelchair skills lesson. The royal visited the Multi-Skills Day and Celebration Event for Whizz-Kidz at Guildford Baptist Church, Englandd, and for the occasion, she wore a pair of green trousers, navy polo neck and navy velvet blazer. 

Sophie chose a navy velvet jacket by the brand Laurie and Jules, which she wore back in May when attending the Royal Windsor Horse Show.

The Bee Navy Velvet Jacket is described as “an absolutely classic look” and the “beautiful tailoring gives a neat fit”.

It is crafted out of “fantastic and elegant soft navy velvet fabric with contrasting soft pewter buttons to add a touch of glamour”.

The jacket also features “gorgeous pinch pleat detailing around the front, the cuffs, collar and pockets which all add just sufficient interest”.

The brand says it is “perfect” with “shirts, jeans and trainers”, but would “work equally well with a smarter dress and heels”.

The jacket is priced at £295 and the brand calls it “a fabulous investment piece to wear again and again”.

Underneath the jacket, Sophie chose a long sleeved polo neck in the same navy colour which she had tucked into a pair of forest green trousers. 

The brand of trousers she wore has not been confirmed, but they were a straight-leg style that featured pockets and cut off at the ankle. 


This is not the first time Sophie has been bold with her clothes colours, she has several pairs of green trousers ranging from bright green, patterned to darker green in her wardrobe. 

Today, she paired the trousers with a pair of navy patent heels. 

In terms of accessories, Sophie chose her Sophie Habsburg Gilda Nappa bag in black with a pink lining. 

It features two compartments, and a long handle which is part chain so the bag can be worn across the shoulder.

The Countess has had this bag in her wardrobe since 2018 and wore it twice that year. 

The brand doesn’t sell the exact design Sophie has, but they have a newer version which offers a variety of colourways and prints for £248 or €290. 

Sophie also wore two pieces of jewellery; a long silver necklace with a large pendant at the end, and a pair of pearl drop earrings. 

The earrings have been worn several times over the years and they are an unexpected take on a classic piece of jewellery with a white pearl at the earlobe and then a larger black pearl below. 

Sophie is not the only royal to appear today, Kate Middleton is currently in America ahead of the Earthshot Prize on Friday. 

She and Prince William were seen watching a basketball game yesterday and since touching down in Boston, the senior working royal has changed her outfit three times already. 

She stepped off the plane in Alexander McQueen, before changing into a Burberry coat and dress and then Vintage Chanel jacket.
