The Countess, 57, radiated elegance as she took her place in the royal box. The star-studded concert will be headlined by Diana Ross and George Ezra and includes performances from Queen, Eurovision runner-up Sam Ryder as well as Hans Zimmer. Around 22,000 people are thought to be attending in person, while millions more are expected to be watching on TV.
The two-and-a-half-hour show will also feature Sir David Attenborough, David Beckham, and a recorded piece by Elton John.
The Prince of Wales, 73, and Prince William, 39, will lead tributes to the monarch after she pulled out of her scheduled appearance at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday and Epsom Derby on Saturday.
Earlier on Saturday, the Earl and Countess of Wessex visited Northern Ireland where they attended a 1950s-themed celebration on Royal Avenue in Belfast.
The couple also met groups of performers including the Belfast Busking Band, and heard stories of the city’s diverse communities over the last 70 years.
The Countess joined in with school children to make crowns and corgis, before viewing a showcase of fashion through the ages.
They later went on to take part in more Jubilee celebrations in Bangor.
Sophie wore a stylish £380 floral ME+EM printed dress for the occasion, which featured tiered detailing across the maxi hemline.
