Anything Kate Middleton can do, Sophie Wessex can do better!

The royal made a brave fashion move as she joined The Queen at the Commonwealth Service yesterday

After weeks and months of us drooling over Kate Middleton’s sartorial choices, it was Sophie Wessex who stole the limelight as she joined The Queen at a royal engagement yesterday.

The Countess of Wessex drew looks as she turned up at Westminster Abbey in London for the Commonwealth Service in an extravagant feather-trimmed bespoke hat by Jane Taylor.

The Queen kept things a little more low-key but no less striking in a cerise dress by Peter Enrione and a cashmere coat and matching hat by Angela Kelly.

The Duchess of Cornwall also looked very regal in bright purple ensemble as she joined Prince Charles for the event to celebrate the Queen’s role as head of the 54 Commonwealth states.

As part of the service the royal guests were treated to a beautiful version of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah by Canadian singer Rufus Wainwright.

Last week the 85-year-old Queen kicked off her four-month Jubilee tour of Britain with a visit to Leicester with the Duchess of Cambridge.
