For footwear, the 58-year-old donned a £455 pair of Emmy London ‘Charlotte’ Pumps.

Their description says: "Charlotte is one of our most timeless and exquisite styles.

"These ivory bridal shoes have a 95mm heel and a lovely pointed toe.

"The metallic gold leather cross-over straps form a 'V' shape that lengthens your legs, while the double buckle is adjustable for ultimate comfort and security throughout your wedding day."

Edward's return to the UK meant the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh could have a quick reunion before Sophie jetted off to Colombia.

The duchess, at the request of the Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office, is currently visiting Colombia until Friday, December 1.

Sophie arrived in the country today, where she will participate in events in Bogotá and Cali to support the Women, Peace and Security Agenda (WPS).

She is also expected to carry on her advocacy for survivors of sexual abuse.
