  1. The green dress is my favorite, simple but beautiful style.
    I like how she does her own independent projects and is supported by the Royal Family

    1. These aren't 'her own independent projects, supported by the Royal family'. She is there at the request of the British Foreign Office, just like William and Kate and other Royal are often asked to do on behalf of the government.

    2. She is there on a mandate from the Foreign Office, hardly an independent project of hers. On the fashion front, the green dress looks great on her!

  2. Like the blouse in the initial photos, the second outfit is a it too bland for me but the green dress is fantastic--the puffy sleeves are very similar to the dresses at whatever celeb awards thing was on recently--Baftas? Globes?---but I think Sophie looks very much better than many of the actresses who attempted the look. Not sure about the scarf round her waist but the colours may have significance for the visit? Fabulous dresses of the ladies in the photo of the Parliamentary group and I like what can be seen of the top of the Mayor of Freetown's dress too.

  3. Belle robe verte dans un style simple qui convient à merveille à sa silhouette ; j'aime moins la ceinture que j'aurais vue de la même couleur. Bien jolie quand elle a les cheveux relevés ; j'adore ses petites boucles d'oreilles !

  4. Ohhh..now that's a lovely green dress! The style and fit is perfect for Sophie and the colour is very refreshing. She looks very good in it.
    I also like her floral top in the first set of photos (cool and simple), and also the pleated skirt in the second set though the photos don't do it justice. Also a more fitted top in a different colour would have paired better with the skirt.
    Keep up the good work, Countess.

  5. Her casual attire in the first series of photos seems to be appropriate. I love her shoes. At the second event, the Countess looks washed out when compared to the beautifully colored dresses of the other women. I love the green of her dress at the last event, and the fabric looks luscious. However, the billowing sleeves are not my cup of tea, but the colorful sash is a nice touch.

  6. The white flowered blouse and white pants are too casual for this ocassion. It simply does not look very professional.

  7. I think the big sleeves of the white blouse and green dress are a little overwhelming but otherwise she looks good for the occasion. (V.M.)

  9. Beautiful green dress. I think that younger members of the royal family should learn from Sophie how to fulfill their royal duties.
