Hospital’s visit was the last official engagement of 2015 for The Countess. Tomorrow is Christmas Ascot, so there’s hope we will see The Wessex family. Then there’s the church walk on Christmas Day. We also should see TRH’s on New Year’s Day, as they usually attend Sunday service, if they are still at Sandringham. So, still plenty to look forward before the end of this year!

Outfit & jewellery:
Issa, Bay Knitted Dress with matching Mills Knitted Cardigan in rose pink.
UFO clutch that dates back to 2011 or so.
