Sophie, Countess of Wessex looked relaxed as she rode her horse and carriage around the grounds of Windsor Castle today.

The royal, 55, was without her husband Prince Edward, 56, and children Lady Louise Windsor, 16, and James, Viscount Severn, 12, but was joined by a groom, who donned a facemask in the grounds of the Queen’s residence in Berkshire.

Sporting a pair of jeans, leather boots, grey jacket, and leather gloves, the mother-of-two looked at ease controlling the horse.

Sporty Sophie tucked her long blonde hair back behind her cap, and opted for minimal jewellery for the outing.

The former PR executive is close with the Queen and the Wessex family are often spotted taking part in outdoor activities at Windsor Castle, which is just 10 miles from their home at Bagshot Park.

Prince Edward, the Queen’s youngest son, and his family also visited his parents in Balmoral this summer.

The Queen and Prince Philip spent six weeks at their Aberdeenshire home but have now moved to Norfolk together to ‘spend time privately’ at the their Sandringham estate, where the Duke spends much of his retirement at Wood Farm.

Amid the Covid-19 crisis, the Queen will return to Windsor in October, from where she will travel to Buckingham Palace for working visits.

Sophie appeared make-up free for her outing at her in-law’s estate today, which comes after she became the first royal to pose for a sculptor.

Last week, Sophie sat  for the acclaimed Leeds-born artist Frances Segelman who created a bust of the Countess.  

The creation of the bust was filmed and streamed online where Sophie seen wearing a beautiful patterned A-Line dress.

Once complete, the piece of tactile art will be unveiled in 2021 to mark The Vision Foundation’s centenary and will allow blind and partially sighted people to feel Sophie’s likeness.

After the sculpture session Sophie, who is patron of charity Vision Foundation, spoke of the challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic by those who are unable to see.

She said: ‘For the blind and partially sighted amongst us, these past months have been especially challenging.

‘However, through the care that the Vision Foundation has extended to those in difficulty, I am hopeful that the people we care for will feel empowered within their communities.’
