Designer of Sophie, Countess of Wessex's Funeral Dress Reveals Sweet Detail Honoring Queen Elizabeth
Suzannah said Tuesday that it was "an absolute honour and privilege" to design Sophie, Countess of Wessex's dress for Queen Elizabeth's funeral Monday
The dress worn by Sophie, Countess of Wessex to Queen Elizabeth's funeral had a subtle (albeit intricately created) nod to the late monarch.
In a Tuesday Instagram post, Suzannah, who designed Sophie's dress, called it "an absolute honour and privilege to be given this opportunity to be a small part of modern history yesterday."
After thanking Jenny King Embroidery for "enabl(ing) the making of this beautiful coat dress design for HRH Countess of Wessex," the designer shared that the design was a tribute to the Queen's "favorite flowers."
"Many beautiful panels of Italian wool and silk satin were embroidered as a tribute with Lily of the Valley — Her Majesty's favourite flowers, intertwined with florals from her wedding bouquet," Suzannah added.
Sophie, 57, is a big fan of Suzannah's. She wore one of her designs to Prince Philip's funeral last year, and regularly wears Suzannah's designs to the Royal Ascot.
