The Sung Eucharist for All Souls' Day Service was held in partnership with Loss and Hope, a coalition of Christian organisations helping churches of all denominations support the bereaved.
This was the first time Sophie Wessex had made an official appearance since going into a two-week period of self-isolation after coming into contact with a person who later tested positive for Covid-19 at the start of October.
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson confirmed in a statement on 9 October: "Earlier this week the Countess of Wessex came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19.
"Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home."
The Countess looked as elegant as always for the service, opting for a short-sleeved navy midi dress with a tan belt, worn with simple black courts. Sophie also donned a light blue floral face mask on arrival to comply with current government guidelines.
