Commenting on her style over the years, director of fashion buying at CHO clothing Gareth O’Rourke stated a change.
He said she has always had a unique fashion sense.
“Sophie, Countess of Wessex is known to be extremely hard working in her role to support the Queen and her involvement in various charity work,” he told Express.co.uk.
In recent years, the mother-of-two has opted for some bold and colourful looks.
Her changing style could hint towards her growing role within the family, the expert added.
He said: “It’s no surprise that we haven’t seen her in flamboyant or stand out pieces up until recently.
Gareth continued to say she may have chosen her looks to attract more attention to the charities she supports.
He added: “Bold fashion statements are a great way for the Countess of Wessex to gain media attention and raise awareness of her charity work.”
Previously Sophie Rhys Jones, she became the Countess of Wessex when she married Prince Edward.
They are both senior members of the Royal Family.
