Countess of Wessex visits Canada General Hospital in Gabriela Hearst

Last week, The Countess of Wessex was in North America, for a few days of engagements, mostly relating to her work in preventing sexual violence. More on the visit here. We saw many old pieces from Sophie, but also some new touches.

The Countess of Wessex has visited Canada General Hospital. Sophie met with patients, talked to doctors and was given a demonstration on Robotic Surgery. Sophie was classic in a black midi dress and added a bright pop of colour with a magenta pashmina.

The Countess of Wessex wore her Gabriela Hearst ‘Gurshka’ midi dress, retailing for £1,095.The black a-line silhouette piece features a scooped boat neck, long sleeves and fits through the bodice and flares out from the waist dress for a midi length. This dress is the same one that she wore to the Festival of Remembrance recently.

Arriving in Canada yesterday, The Countess of Wessex visited both Toronto Western and Toronto General Hospitals, which specialise in cardiology, the treatment of strokes, and transplants. HRH is Patron of both Hospitals, and first visited with The Earl of Wessex in 2005. Image via @RoyalFamily

HRH learnt about the Hospital’s use of technology and innovation, including robotic surgery. This month, doctors at Toronto Western performed the first robot-assisted brain surgery – allowing them to operate remotely on stroke and aneurism patients. Image via @RoyalFamily

The Gabriela Hearst dress is part of the AW19 Collection and is made from a stretch-wool for added warmth.

You can purchase this dress here and on sale here.

The Countess wore her pearl teardrop pendant on an oversized silver chain. We have seen this necklace worn quite a few times over the last 18 months, but it still remains unidentified. Try this necklace as an affordable option to get Sophie’s look. Purchase here.

The Countess of Wessex also visited Toronto General Hospital, which specialises in heart treatment, and met patients Mariana and Darcey. Image via @Royal Family

This footage gives us a glimpse of the Countess’ shoes – which look like her LK Bennett or Prada boots.

We also got to see Sophie’s S Max Mara ‘Custodi’ coat, albeit briefly. The double-breasted piece features a loose silhouette, . It is still available in navy here for £825.
