The Duchess of Edinburgh showed off her sartorial prowess at a breakfast event hosted at Coldharbour Mill in Uffculme earlier this week.

Recycling one of her slickest power suits, Sophie looked immaculate in a fabulous chequered suit jacket and matching flared trousers from Sportmax in photographs published by Devon Live.

Duchess Sophie's 'Maresca' jacket looked phenomenal on her feminine frame, defining her waist with a delicate matching belt and adding detail with scalloped lapels and pocket detailing.

Her 'Dolly' trousers from the luxury womenswear brand added length to her legs with an ultra-high waist and sharp pleats.

The royal swept her blonde hair into a neat ponytail, fastened with a black velvet scrunchie. She elevated her natural beauty with lashings of mascara, a honey-hued bronzer and soft peachy blush.


It's not the first time the fashionable wife of Prince Edward has stepped out in the 70s-inspired ensemble. Back in May 2022, the Duchess first debuted the statement pant suit during a visit to Ascot Racecourse.

At the time, the mother-of-two teamed the coord with the boldest caramel-toned pumps which featured a vibrant purple heel.

Duchess Sophie's penchant for printed fabrics is arguably one of her best style traits. From fabulous florals to bold brights and glorious gingham, the royal's eye for a head-turning print reigns supreme.

One of the Duchess of Edinburgh's most memorable style moments has to be at Trooping the Colour in 2022. The royal donned a bespoke gingham power suit by Suzannah London, catching the attention of royal fans in her striking pink ensemble.

Complete with long sleeves, a notched collar and a button-down bodice, Sophie's figure-flattering outfit highlighted her feminine silhouette.
