The Earl and the Countess of Wessex paid a visit to the Southall Sikh place of worship, the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Gurdwara together on Thursday.

Both Prince Edward and Sophie could be seen wearing headscarves and removed their shoes for the occasion as a mark of respect to the Sikh religion.

Sophie, 53, looked typically elegant in a pale blue dress for her engagement today which she had paired perfectly with her headscarf. Meanwhile Edward, 54, was suitably dapper in a pin stripe suit coordinating his scarlet tie and pocket square to his headscarf.

The couple appeared to be in good spirits as they took a tour of the historic Gurdwara this morning. The mother-of-two later joined others in the kitchen to help prepare chapatis ahead of lunch.
