Again the information is on the British Royal Families future engagements page, if it wasn't on there, then it wouldn't be official.

It's possible this visit may slot into the current events thread as it will have little to no coverage frankly.

I will make sure that this thread and Qatar thread will get decent coverage.
If Uk in India and UK in Quatar will share info like they used to share with other royal visits, then I see no problem.
Visits to Slovenia, Bulgaria and Romania also got great coverage thanks to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts. I am already following them, and will update. So don't bring our mood down. I'm hoping for the best.

PS. Can a moderator of Wessex threads combine India & Qatar topics together? When I was posting those new topics I didin't know that those are joint visits. Thanks!

Chris Jackson is officially my favourite photographer! Lovely photos of Sophie in India, I am impressed that a photographer is following her visit in India. Sophie looks beautiful as always and very chilled in her clothes, which look really comfy! The children look thrilled to meet her and I LOVE the photos of her feeding the fish.

Sophie with children is always a great combination, and it does not get better than this. All the photos are wonderful.

Nice article, I wonder if the Daily Mail will come up with something next. Nice to see a photographer is with her though, that's unusual for Sophie.
