The Countess of Wessex looked stylish in green and white while in Windsor for the Big Jubilee Lunch on The Long Walk today.

Mother-of-two Sophie, 57, was today meeting the public in Windsor alongside Prince Edward as part of the Queen’s fourth day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations. 

With her hair scraped back in a neat pony tail, the countess opted to wear white flared trousers and a white top with a bright green blazer over the top.

Around 3,000 people, mainly from Windsor and surrounding areas attended the lunch, sitting at a line of 488 picnic tables that measured 800 metres long, making it the largest street party in the UK over the four-day festive period.

Sophie’s look today comes after a weekend of stunning dresses, from her pretty in pink dress and hat at St Paul’s Cathedral to her white lace dress at the concert on Saturday night. 

The Earl and Countess of Wessex joined thousands of the Queen’s neighbours for a huge ‘long lunch’ on the Long Walk outside the gates of Windsor Castle on the final day of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Around 3,000 people, mainly from Windsor and surrounding areas attended the lunch, sitting at a line of 488 picnic tables that measured 800 metres long, making it the largest street party in the UK over the four-day festive period.

Prince Edward and his wife Sophie walked along the long line of picnic tables to speak with enthusiastic revellers, who did not let the gloomy weather dampen their spirits.

As a dog lover, Sophie, took some time out of her walk to give some love to a red coated canine, eager for some attention and a scratch behind the ear

Decked out in red, white and blue clothing, Union Jack hats and waving pictures of the Queen, picnic goers braved the windy weather and overcast skies to commemorate her 70 years on the throne.

They had to bring their own food and munched on sandwiches, crisps and even roast dinners as they sipped an assortment of drinks, from quintessential British tea to champagne as they watched the Jubilee Pageant on giant screens that had been erected on the Long Walk.

The royal couple appeared in good spirits as they were mobbed by excited picnic goers as they strolled along the Long Walk.

The picnic got underway at 1pm with Prince Edward and Sophie arriving an hour later. Both spent more than an hour talking about the Platinum Jubilee, the picnic and what people were eating. Sophie said the Queen was ‘fine I think but I’ve not seen her today’.

After making their way along the Long Walk’s ‘long picnic’ the Royal couple were then treated to a performance by children of a song specially written for the Platinum Jubilee.

Thousands of others not lucky enough to win tickets for seats at the picnic tables, which were allocated via a ballot and given out for free, laid out their own blankets nearby as they joined in with the festivities.

Organisers claimed that the 800-metre-long line of picnic tables was not an official world record as they were not laid out in one continuous line and had small breaks between them.

Lisa Hunt, event manager said: ‘We could have gone for the world record but that’s not what this picnic is about.

‘It’s amazing that so many people have come out to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It just shows you how we feel about her. It’s our way of saying thank you for her devoted services. This is a big thank you from the local community to Her Majesty but the whole country feels the same way.’
