With the likes of Meghan Markle, Kate Middleton, and princesses Beatrice and Eugenie ruling the roost when it comes to royal fashion, it would be easy to overlook some of the more established royals, but if you do that, you'll miss out.

Sophie Rhys-Jones married Prince Edward back in 1999 (at the same chapel as Harry and Meghan, no less), when she became the Countess of Wessex. Though it took her awhile to find her feet when it came to royal style, the countess has now developed a signature look that really comes into its own at events like weddings, services, and Royal Ascot.

You thought Kate knew how to rock a coat dress, or team a chic hat with a modest day dress? Sophie wrote the book on that! She favors high-necked dresses with modest hemlines by designers like Emilia Wickstead and Suzannah, and, like Kate, she clearly has milliner Jane Taylor on speed dial. You'll see hallmarks of all your favorite royals in her chic, timeless style. Take a look back at some of her most memorable moments now for proof.
