The Duchess of Edinburgh just recreated an iconic photo, and I almost missed it. 

This week, Duchess Sophie, 59, stepped out for a royal outing at Abbey Road Studios in London. The royal recreated The Beatles' now-famous photo, featuring the band crossing the street at Abbey Road. (It was featured on the cover of the group’s eleventh studio album.)

The royal wore a gorgeous red dress from Beulah London, which featured ruffled sleeves and a slit. She completed the look with nude pumps and styled her hair in a chic updo. 

Duchess Sophie has been quite busy this week. In addition to her appearance at Abbey Road Studios, the royal also paid a visit to The King’s Arms Project, where she observed an English language class and learned more about how the charity is helping immigrant and refugee women.

The British royal family documented the special occasion by sharing a slideshow of photos on social media. The caption read, “Today, The Duchess of Edinburgh visited The King’s Arms Project, a charity dedicated to tackling homelessness, displacement, and isolation in the Bedford area.”

It continued, “During the visit, Her Royal Highness joined an English language class to find out how immigrant and refugee women are gaining independence through learning the language they need for everyday conversations and interactions.”

If you need me, I’ll be listening to The Beatles.
