1 article with Prince Edward pics from today
Princ Edward ocenil studenty. Za jazyky, sport i pomoc senior

Today:
On Wednesday, Edward will take part in the presentation of international certificates from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Foundation, which is a prestigious educational programme that has involved over eight million youths from more than 140 countries.
On Wednesday, Prince Edward and Countess Sophie will go to the Divadlo pod Palmovkou theatre to see a rehearsal of the drama King's Speech about Edward's grandfather, King George VI.
Countess Sophie will visit the Jedlicka Institute for children with disabilities and the Czech-British Sue Ryder home for elderly people, inspired by and named after Margaret Susan Ryder, a British baroness.

"Countess Sophie visited the Czech-British Sue Ryder Home for seniors in Prague this morning."
Here is link to their site, they have gallery with pics from diff events, so there is hope they will share pics from Countess visit as well:

Thanks Anna. Lovely images of the Wessex's today. Love that they attended a Fashion Show. I love Sophie's black dress and jacket and her shoes! :)

Do we hope for pics from this gala?? I so would love to see Sophie in some evening outfit..
As for today's look, her black suit (jacket and dress) looks very Wickstead to me. And Sophie is wearing new blue dress to the fashion show, also beautiful!
Perhaps by Wakeley.

I hope we get some Gala pictures.

I think the blue dress looks very Roland Mouret, I am sure you will use your great skills and hunt down the designer.

I love that each time Sophie accompanies Edward on his DoE trips she makes time to visit things that also interest her.

I thought it was a Roland Mouret. My designer skills are getting better!

I wonder if we will see images from the Gala or if it will be private. I am really surprised that we have even had images of their visit. Of course it's the Czech media who are publishing the images, but it's still better than what I was expected.

I think they are really happy from that visit, and that's why they cover it quite well, though could be better. I just cannot understand British press... They write about every stupid nonsense, and another royal visit isn't covered at all... Weird.

It is annoying but unless you're William or Catherine, the British press really don't care.

Charles and Camilla are getting coverage on their Middle East tour at the minute. But yes, Sophie and Edward don't attract that much attention. Andrew gets coverage because he's Airmiles Andy, Anne for her horses and hardworking, Zara, Beatrice and Eugenie get pictured at events, parties etc they're young and likely to slip up somewhere.

I noticed that Camilla and Charles are getting better coverage and attention from press lately....
As for Wessex'es they really do a great job but it goes unnoticed.

It is true I suppose. People don't even know the Queen has a 4th child. I think perhaps Edward likes it that way, meaning he can go through his life relatively normal and his children can be raised without the press pestering them. I think this will continue as they get older, unless Louise takes after her older cousins and is seen falling out of nightclubs, which she may do.

I am just pleased we have even seen images and videos of this trip.

Andrew only gets limited coverage and then only in a negative sense. Most people don't realise that he is one of the hardest working royals - so far only Charles, Anne and The Queen have done more then him this year but he has had virtually no coverage because his engagements have all been in the UK. Last year he had some negative coverage of his tour to India and virtually nothing of the othe 400 engagements he carried out in the UK.

The press only wants to cover William and Kate and when they aren't available they will cover Charles and Camilla and The Queen. Anne hardly gets any coverage.

Sadly that also comes down to the public - who will they part with their hard-earned money to read about - if they public won't buy then the press won't cover so it comes down to supply and demand - the Wessexes don't sell - simple.

Think back to last year - Harry made a short tour of the Carribean at the same time that the Wessexes were there. He had wall-to-wall coverage of his few days in the area while there was virtually nothing of the Wessexes nearly 3 weeks in the area.

The Wessex's did get some good media after their marriage though.

Thanks Anna! I love the images of them smiling at each other at the fashion show.

The picture of Edward in the wheelchair cracked me up. Brilliant.

I love that Sophie linked her arm with Edward to walk over the snow. Thanks Anna. I wish there were videos, particularly of them planting the tree as it looks amusing.
