Sophie Wessex looked upbeat this morning when she arrived with her husband Prince Edward and their daughter Lady Louise on the third day of the Royal Windsor Equestrian Show.

The Countess trimmed her elegant figure as she and her family inspected an obstacle to traffic after the Queen attended a show on Friday – her first public appearance since she missed a state opening of parliament.

Sophie’s mother of two decided to wear an elegant dark gray jacket, which she paired with a long brown skirt and a white blouse with a print for a busy day.

The Countess, who recently returned from a trip to the Channel Islands to celebrate the Queen’s anniversary, gathered her hair in a low ponytail on the occasion.

She chose a neutral make-up and put on sunglasses in anticipation of the warm weather.

Today is the third day of the Royal Windsor Equestrian Show, one of the Queen’s favorite events of the year.

Her Majesty herself attended the festivities on Friday, despite ongoing mobility problems due to which she missed the state opening of parliament on Tuesday.

The 96-year-old queen was clapped and greeted when she arrived in her Range Rover and closed the window to chat lively with other festival-goers who have never missed an event for the past 79 years.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show crowds looked equally shocked to see her at the event, which was also loved by her 73-year-old husband, Prince Philip, who died last April at the age of 99.

The Wessex were also present on Friday, and Sophie was seen photographing her daughter Lady Louise as she rode in the Duke of Edinburgh’s carriage and led a parade to the century of the Fell Pony Society.

Louise lives with her parents, Prince Edward and Sophie Wessex, and her younger brother James, Viscount Severn in Bagshot Park in Surrey, just miles from Windsor.

It is believed that the young royal, who participated in the crew driving competition, inherited his interest in riding from the Duke of Edinburgh, who contributed to the establishment of riding in Britain as a sport.

And Louise continues to follow in his footsteps: earlier this month she competed in the British Indoor Carriage Championships.

Driving a carriage has been one of Prince Philip’s favorite past times since the 1970s, and he was silent on carriages near Norfolk before representing Britain at several world and European championships.

In May 2017, Prince Philip talked about how he started riding a carriage when he stopped playing polo at the age of 50.

He said: “I looked around to see what was next, I didn’t know what was available. And I suddenly thought, well, we have horses and carriages, so why don’t I go.

“So I borrowed four horses from a stable in London, drove them to Norfolk, practiced and thought, why not?”
