Sophie, Countess of Wessex, has been in central Africa this week, where she began her trip in the Democratic Republic of Congo, becoming the first British royal to visit the country. Today, October 5, the Countess was in the capital of Rwanda, Kigali, where she joined Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, Minister of State for the Middle East, South Asia, and the UN to meet with the Minister of State Professor Nshuti Manasseh.

For the occasion, Sophie wore a blue floral dress and a mathing navy blue blazer.

The dress was a dark blue but covered in peach, light blue, and turquoise flowers. This is the same pattern as a dress by British brand Soler London that Sophie has worn on numerous occasions in the past.

Fashion expert and celebrity stylist Samantha Harman previously told Express.co.uk that Princess Diana started the trend for royals wearing espadrilles back in the 1980s. The late Princess was spotted wearing a pink pair in 1981, weeks before she wed Prince Charles.

"As with so many trends, where Diana went the world followed," Samantha said. "She is probably the first example of a royal wearing espadrilles in public."
