The Countess of Wessex looked like she had stepped back in time to the 1970s on Thursday as she made a stunning appearance at Royal Ascot, wearing a gorgeous navy blue jumpsuit.

Sophie Wessex looked the epitome of chic in the full-length number for Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot racing festival, which is one of the UK’s most prestigious horse racing events and beloved by Her Majesty the Queen.

The royal’s stunning outfit featured wide-flared trousers with front pleats, reminiscent of the 1970s, and a buckled belt around her waist which provided a flattering silhouette.

The mother-of-two teamed the classy one-piece with a pair of towering stiletto heels, just visible beneath her flowing trouser legs, a small navy clutch bag and a matching hat which featured a delicate netted veil.

Sophie wore the stunning ensemble for day three of the racing event, having stepped out just a day earlier with her husband Prince Edward.

And the couple celebrated a special occasion as they attended day two of Ascot alongside their young children, Lady Louise Windsor, 15, and James, Viscount Severn, 11, as Wednesday marked their 20th wedding anniversary.

The couple stood side by side to watch the day’s races from a balcony, with Sophie dressed to impress in white to mark the occasion.

Showing the hint of her high-necked white dress, the countess, 54, looked effortlessly elegant with a statement patterned black and white hat. She coupled the beautiful outfit with some simple silver hoop earrings and wore her hair tied back.

The royal family has been out in force this week as Sophie also attended day one of Royal Ascot, while the Queen, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, the Princess Royal and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have also been pictured at the event.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall also made two appearances and Camilla rode in a carriage alongside her husband and the Queen as the second day of festivities got underway yesterday.

Opting for a gorgeous pale blue coat for the prestigious occasion, the monarch looked flawless, and she completed her powder blue outfit with a statement hat embellished with colourful flowers.

While the duchess also chose a pastel shade, she looked gorgeous in a pale mint green dress which hung elegantly to her knees and donned a matching wide-brim hat in the same shade.
