Queen Wouldn't Approve! Countess Of Wessex's Red Dress Has The Deepest Decollete And Is Probably The Most Revealing One

July 24, 2019

Prince Edward's wife of 20 years might be the best dressed royal you haven't heard of yet!

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is deemed to be one of the most stylish royals in the UK and even beyond it. Maybe she does not get the same attention as Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton or Duchess Camilla in that matter, but most of her outfits are truly fascinating.

However, even high-profile people break the protocol and wear something which is not entirely appropriate for their status in society. You've probably seen many of such photos on the network, and believe us, the Countess of Wessex is not an exception.

Many years ago — May 23, 2003, if to be precise — Sophie and Prince Andrew showed up at a reception hosted by the Norwegian government in Trondheim, Norway. The couple was invited to the wedding of Norwegian Princess Martha Louise and Ari Behn on the following day.

Indeed, the Countess looked radiant in a ravishing red floor-length dress, but here is a thing — royals cannot dress up a revealing ensemble, i.e., to wear a sleeveless outfit and a very deep decollete.

The royal protocol states these points clearly, but Sophie seemingly did not care about the rules. She simply decided to steal the show by showcasing her braless gown.

Do you think the Queen might have approved such a revealing dress? Maybe, Her Majesty was kind and generous enough to allow Sophie to wear such a chic number at the regal event?

Nevertheless, it was not the first time the Countess of Wessex flashed her upper part of the body. She seems to love opened or transparent dresses. For instance, she once appeared in a beautiful white dress at the Chelsea Flower Show but it was a bit transparent above.

Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton are also spotted with revealing dresses which do not match the royal protocol. Interestingly, what the Queen says to them all when they happen to be face to face?
