On July 18, King Charles and Queen Camilla hosted a special reception to honor the work of William Shakespeare at Windsor Castle. In attendance were a number of famous individuals, as well as members of the royal family, including Duchess Sophie and Duchess Birgitte.
For her part, the Duchess of Edinburgh was a vision in paisley as she celebrated the bard's work in style. For many royal fans, the look was described as being "spectacular," with the duchess also being described as "radiant" on social media. And we would have to agree.
Duchess Sophie wore a long sleeved midi dress from the luxury designer, ETRO. For fans of luxury fashion, this may be a familiar brand, as they are known for their attention to detail and design, bringing luxury Italian looks to the world. The brand is also known for stunning patterns and prints that make a statement no matter who is wearing them.
And in this case, of course, the person wearing the statement piece is of course the Duchess of Edinburgh.

According to Hello Magazine, the dress itself is ETRO's Paisley Woven Midi Dress, which the duchess paired with her blue suede Jimmy Choo heels. To complete the look, Duchess Sophie added a matching clutch from the brand Sophie Habsburg, as well as some simple jewelry pieces.
Overall, the duchess gave us a stunning look that was perfect for not only a royal event, but also making a statement. We loved how elegant she looked in this dress, as well as the way she kept the rest of her look clean and simple in order to let the dress itself shine.
Honestly, 2023 has been amazing in terms of royal fashion, with Duchess Sophie stealing the spotlight plenty of times. Her looks have been stunning and elegant, with plenty of statement prints and pops of color. We can't wait to see what she steps out in next.
