A day after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge carried out a number of engagements in London, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, also visited the capital for a special occasion.

The 55-year-old royal, who is patron of sight loss charity, Vision Foundation, sat for a live sculpting session, which was live streamed to the charity's supporters and guests.

Sophie wore a bold geometric printed midi dress from Diane von Furstenberg.

The sleeveless design boasted a retro orange, black and white print, plus a flattering pleated skirt and belt detail.

The dress is still available to purchase for £576 from Farfetch, which is available in US dress sizes 0 to 14.

Sophie has shown a penchant for bold prints this year, most notably wearing a £60 camouflage dress for first in-person engagement since lockdown back in June.

However, the royals most recent geometric print seems to be very on-trend for autumn 2020.

The retro pattern appears to be a popular fashion choice this season, as This Morning presenter, Holly Willoughby, recently wore a similar design from Marks & Spencer.

Willoughby gave her Instagram followers a sneak peek at her favourite M&S items from the new autumn collection on Thursday.

It included the Geometric Belted Midi Shirt Dress, which featured a similar belted silhouette and autumnal hues to Sophie’s ensemble.

It is, however, a fraction of the price, available for only £39.50 - but we’re sure it won’t be around for long.

The ochre dress also comes in a pleated midi skirt version, making it a key pattern in M&S’ new autumn collection.

See, we told you it was trendy.
