Sophie Wessex paid a visit to a charity event amid the pandemic, and she looks very radiant. The British patron partook in a very special cause where she was very hands-on.
Sophie Wessex, Countess of Wessex, glowed in a cute floral face mask while attending a disability charity visit. Wessex and the Disability Initiative clients baked flapjacks and decorated Christmas baubles at the Camberley Resource Center.
The Disability Initiative is a charity for adults with disabilities specializing in providing care and reestablishment to help people reach their full potential and remain as independent as possible.

On the 2-slide Instagram post, Wessex posed while sitting down wearing her facemask with a black long-sleeved turtleneck matching her apron. In her left hand, she held a white marker with a Christmas bauble in the other.
In the next slide, the 55-year-old can be seen standing up while holding a pan alongside her other members who also participated. The team wore blue plastic aprons as they looked focused on their tasks at hand.
The Countess has been the initiative's patron for 17 years. The visit marks the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The cause is in support of the rights and welfare of persons with disabilities in society.
The charity is not the only cause that British royal is supporting. Last month, the Countess shared a personal message to call attention another important cause. The mother of two wrote about standing with survivors of sexual violence.
November 26 marks the International Day to end Violence against Women. The Countess continued to dedicate the message to the courageous survivors that she has met through her support for the cause and that they will continue to fight against the stigma and silence.
While she continues to soldier on and fight the good fight, in March 2014, the Daily Mail reported on how the Countess of Wessex nearly died while giving birth to her first child Louise.
At the beginning of November 2003, the Countess was struck down with crippling abdominal pains. When she arrived at the Frimley Park Hospital, they realized that she needed an emergency Caesarean.
The Countess showed signs of acute placental abruption, in which the placental lining separates from the uterus. The condition was life-threatening to both the Countess and her baby girl.
The traumatic experience continues to haunt her to date. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Countess stepped out for her first public engagement last month after leaving quarantine.
The Countess attended a special service at the Westminster Abbey in London where she gave a reading. According to Hello Magazine, the Countess decided to self-isolate after coming in contact with someone who had tested positive for coronavirus.
In September, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, his wife and kids went on a family day out to assist with beach cleaning. The royal family united with volunteers for the Great British Beach Clean on Southsea in Portsmouth.
According to People, the Earl of Wessex and the Countess joined forces with their two children to make it a family outing. The Countess of Wessex reportedly said that her kids would have to work like any other person, despite their royal status.
