After her visit to the Chelsea Flower show in London yesterday, Sophie Wessex was obviously inspired to continue the floral theme as she visited Cowes this morning.
The Countess, 57, joined Prince Edward, 58, on the Isle of Wight for the Royal Agricultural Society Show’s ‘Education Day, which is organised yearly for local schoolchildren.
The mother-of-two was greeted by pupils from the local school who presented her with flowers when she arrived.
For her day in Cowes, Sophie donned a tiered blue floral skirt with a white blazer and a top.
