The royal mum-of-two, appeared to be enjoying her day as she posed for pictures with some of the show’s main stars, a collection of butterflies from the dome. The show opens officially to the public from tomorrow.

The Countess was given a tour of this year’s show and chatted to excited children as they attended the flower show.

Last week, the wife of Prince Edward was praised for her compassion and dedication as she visited a school in London.

Sophie stopped by The Vale School in Haringey as part of her royal duties when headteacher Sarah McLay spoke of her joy of the royal’s visit.

“It was a pleasure to welcome Her Royal Highness and esteemed guests to our school,” Sarah said. “The Countess spoke to every student which made them feel very special.”

Sophie made sure she made time for every student.
