Sophie dressed in a bespoke sumptuous Suzannah London black coat dress with a unique - and symbolic - embroidered floral pattern scattered all over, which she teamed with a ladylike trilby-style tilted hat. The countess donned a pair of silver earrings which completed her striking look. She offered a beautiful display of complete unity by complementing the outfits of her fellow royal ladies, including Princess Kate, Princess Eugenie and Zara Tindall, who were also in attendance.

Her statement coat was complemented by a floral fascinator that boasted tight coils of black petals. Adhering to royal protocol, Countess Sophie donned some black opaque tights and a pair of L.K.Bennett black suede pumps. As for her accessories, the Countess opted for a Launer London black leather clutch bag and her Black Diamond Strawberry brooch.
Did you notice the print on Sophie's dress? Her coat was embroidered in tiny Lily of the Valley motifs, the Queen's favourite flower. The flower was part of the Queen's funeral wreath as well as in her 1953 coronation bouquet.
Sophie looked elegant as she arrived at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth
Countess Sophie was accompanied by her husband, the Queen's youngest son Prince Edward, their son James Viscount Severn, and their daughter Lady Louise Windsor - who looked lovely in a black flutter sleeve frock.

The Countess of Wessex had shared a special bond with the late Queen Elizabeth II ever since she married Prince Edward in 1999. The two women were often photographed thoroughly enjoying their time spent together. During the Queen's last visit to Royal Ascot in 2019, the pair were joined by the Queen's granddaughter, Zara Tindall, an occasion that will surely be one of Sophie's fondest lasting memories of the monarch.
Countess Sophie arrived with the Duchess of Sussex
Following the state funeral service at Westminster Abbey on what has now been declared a day of national mourning, the Queen will be taken in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch, and on to St George's Chapel in Windsor where Sophie and Edward were married.
