“Dive into the Caribbean with this latest blue and bejewelled twist on our classic design.”

“She’s a pretty woman but needs a better stylist.”

Another fan, @cecebe84 added: “I love everything from the ankles up.”

Royal watcher @basak_ertas commented: “That’s a hit! Shoes are excused.”

Instagram account @esra_zen wrote: “That’s a nice dress but her shoe game in this tour is a fail.”

Finally, royal fan @anniam.nz said: “She should have popped a pair of pumps into her luggage to formal this look up. Love the dress!”

The Countess was pictured chatting happily to Anysia Charles, the wife of the Governor General of Saint Lucia, Errol Charles.

The Investiture took place at Government House in Morne Fortune, near Castries, Saint Lucia.
