You are so welcome, sydney00 and patsy!!
Sydney00, as to your question: The mag did not say the exact name of that house, but it is said that she posed in front of "a friend's house", so it is no house of her or Edward's family..
Patsy, those pics are from my collection, others do collect porcelain, socks or something like that , me I've collected those pics for years..

Iceflower, one page ago you've posted a pic of Sophie hunting, that has surprised me a lot. Do you or someone else know if that was an exception or is it a real hobby she has??

I've seen photos of Sophie hunting on several occasions over the years. I don't know if she did before meeting Edward.

Same for me, Incas. I don't know if you can already call it a hobby she has, Romy, but here are for example some pics of her in 2004 :

Incas and Iceflower, thank you two for answering my question and the pics!! I'm not a friend of hunting, but it is something different in Great Britain and the Royal Family, so it's interesting to know that Sophie joins in as well.

Was that a picture of her actually hunting or just clay pigeon shooting?

I have never heard of the Countess of Wessex actually hunting. She joins the Queen in a little beating and retrival but besides watching Edward and the others she doesn't join in.
Both photos are of Sophie at Clay pigeon, which she actually joins in with her father - not the royals.

The Countess is a keen supporter of both game shooting and fox hunting and she has been criticised for both by so called 'animal rights' groups in the UK.
Hunting is a fact of social life for the aristocracy and Royalty in the United Kingdom.

I have never heard of her hunting or shooting game of any sort. It is, IMO, a mistaken belief that hunting is way of life for the aristocracy and Royals in the UK, when many of them do not join in and do not approve.

I'm new to forums but just wanted to say that these photos are great.
I still wish that Sophie would wear more family vault jewels. She'd look great in some of the more important tiaras.

I recently bought a copy of Point de Vue and was suprised to see Edward without Sophie.Anne and Commander Lawrence were there and Maria-Theresa of Luxembourg and her Grand Duke were also there.

Is this the first major trip Edward has made without Sophie since Louise was born?

I think the first trip to attend other Royal social events such as weddings or birthday celebrations.The events associated with Royal events they had attended to represent the Queen were:Wedding of Crown Prince Frederik and Mary Donaldson, Prince Albert II's enthronement in November 2005.Since Louise was born, Edward has also been on many Official Visits without Sophie(I will try to find the list of visits).However it was reported before that both of them would attend the birthday celebrations in Norway, i just don't know why Sophie did not attend.

Perhaps Louise had a cold. Sophie does not seem the type to leave her sick child with a nanny, no matter what King was expecting her!

I really like this couple. To me, they are a team in every sense of the word and a great asset to the British Royal Family. When I see HRH Prince Edward in any news item, I will immediately try and locate HRH The Countess and vice versa. This shows the unity they have forged into their roles. And they are so comfortable in their love for each other in public. No great contrived show of affection in public. They are the top (current) Royal couple in my books!! Hope that when it finally happens, HRH Prince William of Wales will travel down this road too.

Does the Earl see his nephews beyond the big extended family gatherings?

As Edward is most closest to the Wales boys in age, he might be a good "big brother"/mentor for them.
