Sophie Wessex, 57, visited the Maganga Clinic in Malawi to meet beneficiaries of eye surgeries. This is because today marks World Sight Day, a day which holds great importance to Sophie.

The Countess of Wessex wore a ditsy floral tea dress from ME+EM today in Malawi.

This dress is currently on sale from £225 to £157.50.

It is a lightweight printed woven dress in white, black and red.

Unfortunately, the dress has just gone out of stock, undoubtedly due to its popularity after being worn by a member of the Royal Family.

For footwear, the Countess of Wessex opted for Penelope Chilvers ‘Valenciana’ espadrilles.

These are stone coloured, and sell for just £95.

The description on the website says: “This Valenciana espadrille is the standard height wedge from our classic series of cotton espadrilles for summer (see Low Valenciana for a lower height option in the series).

“Available in a range of classic neutrals including black, navy and stone.

“These simple wedge espadrilles are perfect for beaches and holidays – lightweight, easy to pack and simple to style in the sunshine.”

To accessorise, Sophie opted for a pair of gold hoop earrings, which have not been identified, however they are a repeat wear for the Countess.

She also wore her iconic Felt bracelet.

This gold chain bracelet with a sliced diamond retails for a whopping £375.

The description on the website reads: “Another great addition to our diamond slice collection, designed in-house by our team. 

“Slightly more subtle than the original diamond bracelet, this bracelet has been a massive hit amongst our loyal clients, perfect for layering or beautiful on its own.

“The sliced diamond is set in 14-carat diamond with a nine-carat gold chain, which is 20.5cm long but the length is adjustable and can be shortened.”

The mother of two also wore her Cassandra Goad necklace, a nine-carat yellow gold quote sayings necklace pendant engraved with the words “Love the life you live, live the life you love”, by Bob Marley.

This £865 necklace is still in stock if royal fans wish to look like the Countess of Wessex.

Finally, Sophie tied the outfit together with her Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses.

World Sight Day is important to Sophie, as her eldest child Lady Louise Windsor was born with esotropia, a condition in which one or both eyes turns inward.

She underwent an operation in 2006, in an unsuccessful attempt to correct the problem. She had further treatment in late 2013, which fixed her eyes.
