An update on their visit and the reason why. I thought it would have been for The Duke of Edinburgh's Award but it's not.

Quote:
Prince Edward is coming to observe the process of closing down orphanages in Bulgaria and moving their inhabitants to foster families or protected homes.

What an interesting reason to go, but a very good reason. I can see why Sophie is going as she has many patronages related to children with disabilities. I can sense lovely photos of them with children. I look forward to seeing this visit and I wonder how it will be received.

The visit of Prince Edward and his wife Sophie Countess of Wessex to Bulgaria is unfortunately not going to happen on 14-16 March 2013 as planned because of the expected parliamentary elections.

The British Embassy is in contact with the Royal Household about possible future dates for a visit.

That's a shame but these things happen. It likely wont happen now for a long time as most Royals' diaries are booked months in advance.

I think that 2013 is going to be a busy year for the Wessexes. I'm looking forward into seeing pictures of the visit.

So do I. I can see that photo having been their 2012 Christmas card or their card for this year.

Awww Edward has had a new portrait done at the same obviously. Cute. I wish we had one with Louise and James.

Anywho, that's not relevant to this topic. I look forward to this trip.

Maybe a moderator could change the topic of Bulgaria and Romania, only to one, and add Slovenia as those visits will be one after another?
Thanks!

I had forgotten about this visit. They are due to arrive in Bulgaria today:

Bulgaria Welcomes Britain?s Prince Edward, Wife Sophie - Novinite.com - Sofia News Agency

Bulgarian President to meet with Prince Edward and Countess Sophie

This visit sounds good and the idea of focusing on orphanages is great.
