The Countess of Wessex stepped out in boots just like Kate Middleton's favourite pair

The Countess of Wessex is constantly on the go! Fresh from her appearance in Manchester on Wednesday, the wife of Prince Edward headed to Sandhurst where she watched armed forces compete for the Wessex cup. With minimal makeup and her hair tied back, she looked fresh and ready for an action-packed afternoon. Gone was her chic go-to look of bold dress coats by Prada and fancy frocks by Emilia Wickstead and Victoria Beckham, and in its place was a super casual camouflage jacket and khaki jeans. But, it just wouldn't be a Sophie special if she didn't bring the glamour - and she decided to rock some fabulous brown suede knee-high boots by Really Wild. 

Sophie brought the glamour in her Penelope Chilvers boots

The mother-of-two's boots had pretty tassel detail at the side and looked smart with their buttery-soft texture. Think you've seen these boots somewhere before? They look very similar to the Penelope Chilvers pair that the Duchess of Cambridge regularly sports for her more dressed-down appearances. Great minds think alike, right?

Duchess Kate looked fabulous in her boots

Prince William's wife has been a long-time fan of the chestnut brown boots - donning them once again two weeks ago when she returned to work after maternity leave.

And it's easy to see why - they are a classic item and will never date. What’s more, they could be worn with a skirt, dress or trousers. Kate's rocked them to festivals, on royal tours, during official engagements and out and about with the children.Talk about value for money per wear..
