Sophie Wessex wows in ‘varying shades of blue’ in The Hague – hidden meaning behind colour

Sophie Wessex, 58, was in The Hague in The Netherlands this week, where she visited the International Criminal Court to learn more about global support for survivors of conflict-related sexual violence. The Countess of Wessex also visited the International Commission on Missing Persons and congratulated young people who have completed the International Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

But royal fans were quick to notice something about her style during the mini tour.

When Sophie visited the International Commission on Missing Persons, she wore her Harris Wharf Maxi coat with Blue and Brown belt.

The Countess additionally wore her Helmut Lang “Gala” Stretch-Twill Blazer for £375.

She also carried her Sophie Habsburg “Belle de Jour” Clutch in Pony Tobacco.

For footwear, she wore her Prada “Pointed Toe Navy Suede Pump”.

For accessories, Sophie wore her Lucia Odescalchi “Changing Berlin” Earrings and her Cassandra Goad “Love the Life” Quote Pendant for £925.

Instagram user @birdnerd327 wrote: “This is a nice look! The blazer is very flattering. Although it seems she’s worn varying shades of blue the whole time!”

Royal style expert @royalfashionpolice replied saying: “Blue fits the sombre agenda of this trip.”


Sophie later had a meeting with leading Dutch women in business to hear more about their experiences of being female leaders in The Netherlands.

The Countess wore a Me and Em “Pearl Zip Knitted Pleat Dress in Navy” for £336, and carried her Sophie Habsburg “Belle de Jour” Clutch in Pony Tobacco.

This was, once again, another blue outfit that looked fabulous on Sophie.
