Beatrice, like other royals, has influenced the fashion style of many royal fans who often seek out statement pieces the Princess is seen wearing. Similarly, members of the Firm mirror each other’s gowns and accessories, like Sophie did with Beatrice.
Prince Edward’s wife was spotted wearing a Philip Treacy statement hat that her niece wore in 2005.
The voluminous burgundy headpiece was Sophie’s pick for her visit to the Corps of Army Music.
Beatrice wore the hat in purple aged just 17 for the walk to church on Christmas Day.
But it seems like the Countess may have owned the hat since 2006 asa she was first seen donning it at Cheltenham Festival in March 2006.
It was also her accessory of choice on Christmas Day that year.
The Countess has become a key member of the Royal Family by being hard-working and supporting the Queen.
According to royal expert Erin Hill, Sophie represents the values of the Firm.
She said: “A royal source told PEOPLE that the Queen and Sophie are remarkably close and that Sophie’s actually the Queen’s favourite daughter-in-law.
According to some royal commentators, the Countess’ good relationship with Edward has contributed to the Queen’s approval of her.
The Earl and Countess of Wessex celebrated the 21st wedding anniversary last week.
The couple spent the lockdown together with their two children, Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn, at their Berkshire home, Bagshot Park.
They have demonstrated that stand by each other in private through the coronavirus crisis and in public as they appeared at engagements.
