Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh spend the afternoon with the British Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association, of whom she is patron. The meeting took place at Buckingham Palace, and for the occasion, she dressed in a brown polka dot dress and camel blazer.
Sophie’s dress is not new, in fact, it has been in her wardrobe for the last five years.
It is a Diane von Furstenberg Baker Wrap-Around Dress in brown silk.
According to royal fashion fans, the dress “takes inspiration from feminine, retro designs in the form of a white polka-dot print”.
“It’s shaped for a slim fit with a wrap-around bodice – a nod to the designer’s hallmark piece – then falls into an asymmetric hem.”
The dress was originally priced at £424, but Sophie is making sure she gets lots of wear out of it.
She first wore it in September 2018 for a visit to St Thomas’s Hospital, then in Feburary 2019 for a visit to Ockley.
In March 2019 she chose it for her Leed’s Children’s Hospital visit, and then more recently in March 2022.
Today, she wore her Max Mara Alpaca Blazer in Camel over the top of the dress.

It is a single-breasted blazer jacket in pure camel broadcloth with a high-waisted semi-fitted cut and smooth cotton velvet patch appliqués halfway down the sleeves.
The garment boasts a lapel collar, breast pocket and flap-adorned welt pockets.
It is lined with monogram-embellished stretch lining and features horn button fastening.
This is one of Sophie’s favourite jackets and she has worn it six times previously since purchasing it in 2021.
Unfortunately, royal fashion fans are unable to buy the blazer as it has sold out online.
But similar blazers retail around £700-£1,300 depending on style and material.
To complete the outfit, the Duchess chose a pair of tan leather court heels, and tied her hair back.
She wore a small pendant and matching earrings in terms of accessories.
