The Queen’s Platinum
Jubilee weekend may have passed, but the celebrations certainly aren’t
over for the Countess of Wessex, who continues the festivities in
Gibraltar during her royal tour with Prince Edward.
Sophie, 57, stepped out on
Thursday morning for the Queen’s Birthday Parade in Casemates Square in the
most stunning Emilia Wickstead dress. Complete with an elegant square
neckline, midi length, structured skirt and silhouette-enhancing drop
waistline, the Countess’ bold ‘Francis Organza’ dress is easily one of her

frock featured an alluring equestrian print, which may have been a conscious

Thursday marks the royal
couple’s final day in Gibraltar. Throughout their visit, Sophie and Edward
celebrated Her Majesty’s 70 years of service with the people of Gibraltar.
The Earl and Countess last
visited Gibraltar to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
Their time in Gibraltar will also recognize its communities, culture and
history, as well as its links with the UK.
The visit is said to have a
particular focus on promoting opportunities for young people and education.
