Oh My! Does Edward ever look young! He looks deeply happy - as does she.

And that exquisite quote from Edward: "We are the very best of friends and that's essential, and it also helps that we happen to love each other as well very much."

They both look so young and very happy which is lovely.

Lady Nimue I have always liked that quote from Edward. He wasn't afraid to say he loved his fiance in public, unlike his older brother's infamous saying "Whatever love means." (I always cringe at that.)

It was a solid pairing. A mature love.

Yet, I have often thought that what Charles said was the simple truth - 'whatever love means' - what does anyone mean by 'being in love'?

P.S. Had Charles and Diana - let's face it - really gotten to know each other the way Edward and Sophie did, they never would have married.

Definitely a solid pairing - after 21 years they still look happy to be in each other's company. As Edward also said "we are the best of friends and that's essential" which it definitely is.

I agree that Charles and Diana most likely would have never married had they gotten to know one another as they were so different and Diana was so young. The same for Sarah and Andrew - they barely knew each other really and never saw each other when they first married. Edward was lucky because he had much more time to choose his other half and he did well!

Edward was given such a hard time over leaving the Marines and "It's a Royal Knockout", but he's been successful in the things that really matter--maintaining a loving marriage and being a good father.

I like the fact that Prince Edward declared he and Sophie were the best of friends.
I like the fact that the photo call was in the gardens.
In the gardens flowers grow.
Flowers are a reminder of the upcoming wedding.

I love the red Catherine Walker coat dress she wore in 2012. Splendid! Hat is great, too.

Wow! This photo really shows just how tall Louise is growing! She'll be taller than her mother in another year or two, I'm thinking.

Louise is so tall, even James looks tiny next to her and I always thought James was going to be tall. She is definitely going to be taller than her mum as Edward is quite tall. I love their camouflage clothing and the fact that Louise and James are posing in practically the same way.

As there is no interview thread for the Wessexes, I'll pop this one here.

Some in her new office of her public relations firm, some in some palace. Will check the paper.

I found this great photo of Sophie on Pinterest from the Burghley Horse Trials, I'm not sure when it was taken but I thought it was so fun to see a member of the BRF scour shops just like a "regular" person!
