Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh turns heads in favourite coat

Edward and Sophie, the new Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, arrived in Edinburgh this afternoon, March 10, and were greeted by crowds on the city’s Royal Mile. Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, has been elevated to the Duchess of Edinburgh after it was announced that her husband Prince Edward had been given his late father’s Duke of Edinburgh title. 

The couple spoke with onlookers as they took part in their first royal engagement with their new titles.

For the occasion, Duchess Sophie looked snug in a long, wool cream coat with large buttons and an open collar.

She combined this with a grey scarf and carried a green clutch bag.

The bag was envelope-shaped and featured a crocodile print. 

Underneath her long coat, Sophie seemed to be wearing a long, blue skirt or dress.

She seemed to be wearing nude tights and pointy, nude heels.

Sophie’s coat was the ‘Custodi’ Double-Breasted Brushed Wool Coat in Sand White by Max Mara.

The designer is a favourite among members of the Royal Family, and both Sophie and Kate, Princess of Wales, own many of its garments.

The ‘Custodi’ coat was available to buy on Selfridges’ website for £825, but it is currently out of stock.

Describing the coat, Selfridges said: “Take the Custodi coat, for example – made in Italy, this sleek, slim-fitting style is and suitable for even the smartest of seasonal occasions.

“Made entirely from pure wool, button up the calf-length silhouette to keep the cold well away – while stuffing your hands into the perfectly placed pockets will forbid freezing fingers.”

Sophie was, therefore, in good hands with the Max Mara coat today as Edinburgh was hit with cold weather.
