Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, made jaws drop in an elegant stunning black dress during her first public appearance since she self-isolated in early October.
The Countess of Wessex, Sophie, has returned to her royal duties after leaving quarantine last week, and she made sure to leave a lasting impression on fans with her impeccable fashion sense.
Sophie attended the All Souls Day service at Westminster Abbey on Monday evening to honor the lives lost during the pandemic. At the event, which was held in collaboration with the organization, Loss and HOPE, which helps churches across the United Kingdom comfort and support the bereaved, the countess gave a reading.

She was dressed to the nines for the somber occasion in an elegant ankle-length corporate black gown with a v-neck and brown belt attachments by the side.
In September, the countess made headlines when her family partnered with volunteers to participate in the Great British Beach Clean in Portsmouth.
The outfit, which featured pleats at the skirt bottom and oversized sleeves, was paired with black suede high boots. The 55-year-old royal styled her blonde hair into a low bun parted in the center and wore a face mask.
The visit to the church was Sophie's first public appearance since she chose to self-isolate in early October after having contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19.
Buckingham Palace announced the decision via a statement saying that although Sophie wasn't experiencing any symptoms, she chose to isolate at her home in Bagshot Park.
She lives there with her husband, Prince Edward, and their kids Lady Louise and James, Viscount Severn. During her isolation, Sophie continued to carry out her royal duties through virtual meetings and appearances.
Before the quarantine, her last appearance was at the Virgin Money London Marathon, where she raced with athlete Tomas Carrillo-Zall, a runner with learning disabilities.

It was a sweet family affair as the clan was dressed down in casual ensembles while they picked up trash and bagged important items found. Sophie held the trash bag while her kids collected the litter with sticks. Prince Edward, on the other hand, handled the record of items found.
It is no surprise that the Queen's grandchildren were very hands-on as their mother revealed earlier this year that she and Edward raised them to know that they would most likely work for a living despite being royals.
She and Edward have also been open with their decision not to use the kids' HRH titles but have kept the option for when Loius and James are of age to make the decision themselves, which is by 18.
Days before the beach clean, Sophie broke the record as the first royal to participate in a live sculpting session when she participated in a special event for the Vision Foundation. The countess joined artist Frances Segelman as they created a bust for the blind and partially sighted people.
