The Countess of Wessex took to the floor with former Strictly Come Dancing contestant and ITV star Judge Rinder for a special celebration.

Sophie Wessex joined Rob Rinder on the dance floor during a celebratory event in Guernsey, which he was hosting. Liberation Day commemorates the end of German occupation in the Channel Islands during World War II, and the Countess was attending a special Tea Dance to mark the occasion.

Sophie Wessex and her husband Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son, are currently on an official visit to the Channel Islands as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year.

A post on the official Royal Family social media account said that the annual Liberation Day Tea Dance “brought together the generations to celebrate, with a special service held later at Castle Cornet.”

Sophie looked stunning in a glossy green shirt dress as she was taken through the dance moves with the event’s host, Judge Rinder. Rob Rinder wore a blue tartan suit and shared a video of the Tea Dance to his Instagram account with a quote from the Queen.

“’It has perhaps always been the case that the waging of peace is the hardest form of leadership of all.’ HM The Queen,” he captioned the video.

Photos of the Earl and Countess of Wessex at a range of celebrations were shared to the Royal Family’s social media, which explained that the couple had been to both Guernsey and Jersey for the special occasion.

While in Jersey, they were able to view “the annual Liberation Day parade and met some of the Island’s Occupation Generation, who shared their experiences of living through the occupation.”
