Thanks iceflower, lovely photos of Sophie who genuinely looks interested. I would think eye conditions would be an area of interest for Sophie given Louise's esotropia.

We haven't seen than dress in a while. I do really like it, even if it is very patterned. The close up shot of Sophie is lovely, she honestly has amazing skin and I like that she keeps her freckles and doesn't try to hide them. I have to say, I know she has been a blonde ever since she has been in the public eye, but years of dying your hair blonde does leave it awfully dry.

There is a small video from the visit to the Flying Eye Hospital. The plane/hospital is fantastic.

Sophie really is beautiful. It's great to see her trip get covered. Chris Jackson is my new favourite royal photographer!

As much as I love Zimbio for sharing pics in better quality and without watermarks, they do incredible mess with their galleries. Countess pics are posted under 5 different names, usually they are among other people, like her gallery for Sophie:
Sophie Thumbnails - Zimbio
It's like they couln't do one and only one gallery for her, and post all pics there, they are simply post her pics anywhere they like.
Check these:
http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/jQ2GT...+Wessex/browse
Countess Sophie visits Wessex. Congratulation... Really.

BTW, that's the pin Countess was given, as you can see it at few pics:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORBIS-Inte...d437e7216#shId

And a DM article!

If Chris Jackson had not gone with Sophie this would visit would have had no coverage. The fact that the British Monarch website made a point of mentioning this visit highlighted it to the press.

Yes, I wanted to add that too. Someone must have take care of my sanity, because I would have gone mad without pics or news. So I am greatful to Chris Jackson very much.

But I also wanted to say, that I liked coverage from Czech and then Romania, Slovenia & Bulgaria. It did need a bit more searching, but there was press involved also FB and flickr accounts that shared amazing pictures.

India tour for now is quite mute when it comes to FB, Twitter and filckr, but there is a chance they will update it after the visit. Anyway time will tell. For now Chris Jackson rules!
