The Countess of Wessex, 56, visited the Guide Dogs National Centre in Leamington Spa in her role as patron. During the royal outing, Sophie met a number of labrador puppies as she toured the facility.

The Countess appeared to be in her element as she made a fuss of the cute pups at the centre.

In the adorable snaps, Sophie is surrounded by four tiny golden labradors.

At one point, a cheeky puppy makes a beeline for the Countess’s hair prompting her to burst out laughing.

Pictures show the Countess gently trying to pull her locks out of the determined animal’s mouth as she giggles.

In another image, Sophie grins as an enthusiastic pup licks her nose.

The Countess also picked up a little black labrador for a cuddle in a sweet snap.

And she watched a dog taking part in a hydrotherapy session at the centre.

Sophie looked typically elegant in a long burgundy dress for the royal engagement.

The charity provides mobility for the blind and partially sighted and supports research, raises awareness and campaigns for the visually impaired.

It is a cause close to the Countess’s heart and she is also patron of Vision 2020: The Right to Sight and global ambassador for the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness.

Sophie previously revealed she was inspired to support the cause after her daughter Lady Louise Windsor was suffered from an eye condition called strabismus.

The Countess said in 2015: “Premature babies can often have squints because the eyes are the last thing in the baby package to really be finalised.

“Her squint was quite profound when she was tiny and it takes time to correct it, but she’s fine now – her eyesight is perfect.”

Thursday was a busy day for Sophie who also attended an Armistice Day service in Bedworth.
