Will Sophie, Countess of Wessex, get a new title? Royal’s fashion shows growing importance

07/14/2019

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is the wife of the Queen’s youngest son, Prince Edward. Together, the couple have two children, Lady Louise Windsor, 15, and James Viscount Severn, 11. Prince Edward is 11th in line to the throne and Sophie often appears carrying out royal duties on behalf of the Queen. Over the years, Sophie appears to be doing more as a working royal and her fashion choices could show her growing importance in the family, Gareth O’Rourke, director of fashion buying at CHO clothing, told Express.co.uk.

Her bold outfits could suggest her newly added responsibility within the Royal Family.

Sophie Countess of Wessex has always had great style and a love of designers such as Emilia Wickstead and Oscar de la Renta.

Her classic fashion choices show her hard-working attitude to life as a full-time royal, Gareth explained.

He told Express.co.uk: “Sophie, Countess of Wessex, has always been known for her elegant yet simple fashion sense.

“She is known to be extremely hard working in her role to support the Queen and her involvement in various charity work.”

However, in recent years, her style seems to have changed which could reflect her role in the family.

“It’s no surprise that we haven’t seen her in flamboyant or stand out pieces up until recently,” Gareth continued.

“Sophie Countess of Wessex was seen wearing a lovely Navy blue jumpsuit at the Royal Ascot for Ladies day and was also spotted wearing a matching bold patterned dress and hat for the Royal Ascot opening day.

“Bold fashion statements are a great way for the Countess of Wessex to gain media attention and raise awareness of her charity work.”

Sophie could be trying to raise more awareness to show she is possibly preparing for a new title.

Gareth told Express.co.uk: “Her bold outfits could suggest her newly added responsibility within the Royal Family and the importance of her appealing to a wider audience now that she is in line to become the Duchess of Edinburgh.”

Although Sophie is a Countess and not a Duchess, it is thought she could one day become the Duchess of Edinburgh. 

If Prince Edward was to become the Duke of Edinburgh in the future, Sophie would be given the title.

Her fashion choices may also show her influence over younger royals, an expert revealed. 

Sophie is not afraid to re-wear styles, which is something copied by royals like Kate Middleton, 37.

Meghan Markle also seems to have taken tips from the royal as she has wore some of the same designers.
