She has been sat loyally by the side of the Duchess of Cambridge throughout the Paralympic Games, cheering Team GB onto victory.

But last night, Sophie Countess of Wessex shone in her own right in a stunning pink off-the-shoulder dress.

The Royal beauty attended the fundraising Paralympic Ball in west London, as her husband Prince Edward is a patron of the association.

The Countess, 47, accesorised the coral floor-length gown with a clutch bag, cream shawl and sparkling drop pearl earrings at the ball, which was held at The Grosvenor Hotel on Park Lane.

Sophie has given the Paralympians her glittering seal of approval at many of the Games already.

Alongside the Duchess of Cambridge, she witnessed the British crew take Paralympic glory, watching the rowing at Eton Dorney along with Lady Louise Windsor.

The Royal trio also cheered as they watched British gold medal favourite Sarah Storey
break a world record in the individual pursuit at the packed Stratford
venue – before joining a slow motion Mexican Wave, much to the delight of the
noisy 6,000-strong audience.

Sophie and husband Edward also avidly watched the wheelchair rugby, and the Countess had to cover her mouth at one point because of the violent collisions taking place before her.

It is clear to see that Sophie and Kate have formed a close bond throughout the Games and have showed their support rain or shine.
