63 including her honorary military positions. The majority seem to fall in three categories I notice: disabilities (physical or learning) and blindness, the fine arts (ballet, a few galleries, architecture trusts, army singers), and sports. And most include kids in some way. Also community projects for homelessness.

I am surprised they did not get Catherine for this.

Good for Sophie. I thought Catherine would've taken up something like this too.

I think Sophie is a perfect choice. I'm sure she'll do great job.
She showed amazing change of her fashion choices in the last few years.

What a cool Patronage and I am glad Sophie has been chosen/chose to do it as opposed to Catherine.

Me too, I like Kate, but I think Sophie is better choice for that specific patronage.
Not to mention Kate soon will be more into children fashion :)

Although it could be the case that Catherine turned down the patronage too. These kind of industries do look to the very young and high profile to help bring more focus to the industry.

Sophie is upset by oath vote:
AS SHE is the Queen's favourite daughter-in-law the Countess of Wessex is not relishing the quandary she has been placed in over her position as the monarch's representative as head of the Girl Guides:
