Thanks for the artcles.

A gallery of a lot of images of Edward and Sophie's visit to Barbados is available here. Is the white dress an old one? It definitely looks familiar. I love Sophie's floral dress, another Caribbean dress of choice and it looks good.

Thanks Molly for links with small but wonderful pictures.
They looks happy and relax, and I like the choice of the outfits
Sophie is still without mistake in choosing the all outfit.
The white dress, she was were at Prince Albert of Monaco accession in 2005. Love summer-Caribbean dresses

What is the ribbon Sophie is wearing on the shoulder of her gown. Has she received a new order from Barbados or perhaps it is the Daimond Jubilee Medal?

I can see why that picture is your favorite . The smiles say it all.

Sophie does indeed look great. I love the fact that their attire for the black tie event just happened to coordinate . It's lovely to see them receive good coverage.

It's such a lovely photo, I wish we could see others from the visit. They do refer to her as Princess Sophie a lot though. It is only in these visits that do we ever see her full titled used, The Princess Edward.

It is nice that their clothes co-ordinated, whether it was intentional or not. There is an image of Edward holding Sophie's hand as they walk down the stairs. I love that, ever the gentleman.

Well, she is legally The Princess Edward, but you go by your highest ranking title, and hers is The Countess of Wessex. So while no one would be in error calling her that, it's not the title she has assumed publicly.

I love that they hold hands in public (probably when they think no one's looking ).

It is lovely, isn't it? Edward often helps her down stairs, and when she had broken her rib at Easter over the Royal Wedding hype, he was there holding her hand to help her up the aisle and when they returned to Buckingham Palace he waited for her so he could help her up the stairs. It's such a simply gesture, but it's lovely. I am sure a lot of men would do it though.

I know, it's lovely. I wish they were more affectionate in public, but I think it adds to the mystery of their relationship and makes it so successful, due to the fact they keep all their affection in doors. They are lovely though, you can still see that they're happy after almost 20 years together. The little looks and jokes they share are cute, especially this image from the State Dinner, one of them has said something funny and they're smiling. Cute.

Thanks Iceflower, the image of Edward planting the tree is amusing.
