Sophie, Countess of Wessex, 57, has stepped out in a stunning hot pink frock during her royal tour of Botswana.

In what was her third engagement for the day, the royal made a statement in fuchsia with a bespoke Soler London ankle length dress.

The 57-year-old accessorised the gown with a Sophie Habsburg bag in pink and a Chloe ‘Eliza’ leather wedge slingback sandals.

Sophie wore the dress for a dinner reception at the Gaborone International Convention Centre after she met the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Lemogang Kwape.

Earlier that day, the countess donned a flowy blue floral number while attending a Commonwealth Points of Light Reception at the British High Commissioner’s Residence along with a white linen dress during a trip to Molefe Primary School in Kopong.

The royal tour comes a month after the death of her mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth II.

Towards the end of Her Majesty’s life, Sophie remained somewhat of a rock for the monarch.

After the sad passing of the love of The Queen’s life, The Duke of Edinburgh, it was reported that Prince Edward’s wife became one of the monarch’s closest confidantes and regularly checked in on her mother-in-law.

“If you’re asking who is Her Majesty’s favourite child, it’s none of them, it’s her daughter-in-law,” a “courtier” told The Sun in 2021.

The sentiment was backed by royal commentator Dunan Larcombe, who deemed Sophie The Queen’s “rock” as she adjusted to life without her husband.

“Since the Duke’s death in April, Sophie has driven the 10 miles from her Bagshot Park home to Windsor Castle every few days and most weekends to spend socially-distanced time with Her Majesty,” the royalist said.

“And on days she can’t get there in person, the Duchess of Wessex has made a point of calling her mother-in-law at least once a day.”

Meanwhile, royal expert Ingrid Seward spoke in a documentary Edward & Sophie: The Reluctant Royals about the unprecedented way The Queen gave her daughter-in-law her blessing.

“The Queen decided that she wanted Sophie to understand what marrying into the Royal Family meant,” Ingrid said, before revealing Her Majesty’s unorthodox gesture.

“What she did, which has never happened before, is she gave Sophie a pass to Buckingham Palace, so it’s like being given the key to a front door.”
