These Two Royals Hung Out and Laughed Together at the Westmorland County Show

While many royals will take on engagements solo or with their partners, it's not often that we get to see two royals team up for an event.

However, this past week was an exception, as Princess Anne and Sophie, the Countess of Wessex, banded together to attend the Westmorland County Show. And based on the photos that were shared to the royal family Instagram account, it looked like the sisters-in-law had a blast.

The slideshow was shared to Instagram with a caption that said, “The Princess Royal and The Countess of Wessex visited the Westmorland County Show together this afternoon. The Show has been running for 222 years!”

In the photos, the two are seen standing side-by-side and laughing together while they enjoyed the festivities put on by the Westmorland Agricultural Society. Princess Anne sported a bright yellow blazer with a teal skirt, while the Countess of Wessex opted for an olive green jacket over a pink blouse and a long white skirt.

The events of the afternoon were described in further detail in the rest of the caption, where they said, “The Princess and The Countess visited the stars of the Equine Centre, before meeting the Champion Hereford Bull, and Maude the Bloodhound. The Princess and The Countess are both supporters of agriculture and the countryside.The Countess is Patron of the The Association of Show and Agricultural Organisations, and today became Patron of the Addington Fund, a charity which provides financial and residential aid to the farming community. The Princess is President of The Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth, which was founded by The Duke of Edinburgh in 1957.”

We love seeing these royals getting in some bonding time.
