Great post Anna! The Countess looked wonderful, and I loved the articles about HM. Made me tear up. I love her. No one better- but William's getting there.
Still, there will never be another like her. I love her.
BTW, love the picture of Diana in the one article. Love that dress.

Sophie looks like a surgeon about to operate, but she seems to be in good spirits about it!

I love, love, love the dress from yesterday. It's so beautiful.

I am also a big fan of today's sartorial choice as well. It's brave and I feel Sophie pulls it off well.

That cake! Wow! So pretty! And that's a small job for her! Seriously! Like to see what her big jobs are! Blown away by her talent! So not one of mine!
I see Edward's point- but I loved hers- that the best part for her is people enjoying her creations! And I bet that cake was really yummy!

The video of Edward cutting the cake is amusing and that is a MIGHTY cake!

Lovely to see them both at Ascot.

Thanks for posting those - Sophie looks really lovely (I love her suit), and I always love to see pictures of her at Ascot because she always gets quite into it. Her reactions can be priceless.

Nice interview. I'm glad to hear her talk a little about Louise's eye problems, if only because it helps set the record straight on some things (e.g. it's interesting to hear her point out that Louise never had exotropia, because that's what the papers always said it was. Yet further proof that just because a piece of information gets repeated over and over again, it doesn't mean it's true!). And it's really great to hear that Louise's eyesight is perfect now.

I know Sophie has declined to discuss Louise's eye problem in the past, but I think it's often helpful for people to discuss their personal reasons for supporting a particular cause.

My daughter has exotropia and her appearance was exactly like Louise's (my daughter had surgery at four, but the drifting reappeared in her teens - not an uncommon occurrence btw) so it wasn't that far a stretch for people to assume she did. However, I'm a little disappointed that Sophie used the term "squint" as in the US that would be considered a derogatory term and makes no medical sense at all. I would have like to have her use the exact diagnosis as that would enable people to be a little more educated on the various kinds of complications of prematurity. Oh well.

Oh, I'm not surprised that the assumption was that she had exotropia, but more that it seemed to be reported as fact for so long - that's just bad journalism. I realize, though, that Edward and Sophie have obviously been quite private about Louise's eye condition, and continue to be. I, too, found it a bit odd that Sophie used the term "squint," largely because it means something quite different to me (e.g. to me, squinting is what one does if the sun is too bright). However, there are obviously general differences in vocabulary in the US and the UK, and I find these differences to be most pronounced when it comes to anything medical. As for specificity with regard to the exact diagnosis, it does mention strabismus, but I realize that's a very broad condition - is there usually a more specific diagnosis? I am glad that Sophie did at least mention that the issue was connected to prematurity, because I know I've heard some people doubt if that had anything to do with Louise's eye condition (I had always assumed it did. I'm no medical expert by any means, but was aware that eye problems were common in premature babies). Overall, it seems as if Sophie still wants to keep the specifics private (fair enough - as it's do to with Louise's health, not her own). I'm frankly surprised it took her so long to discuss it at all, because Sophie has been involved with charities related to vision problems since before Louise was even born, and it seems to be one of the causes she's most passionate about. Even just mentioning a personal connection can, I think, help draw attention to such things.

I think it is unfair to criticise Sophie for using a term that is derogatory in the US. I've already read on this forum someone being criticised by people for not liking a term that is American

Can we just accept that terminology has different meanings across the globe and just give the speaker a pass? It is the context in which the term is used that matters and Sophie was obviously talking about something she cares for a lot.
