Countess of Wessex's brother & family

We never seem to hear anything of Sophie's brother and his family. Have seen pictures with her father but you never see I think his name is David pictured with her or attending events or more so invited by the royal family? It would be nice for Sophie to have her brother and family around now that her Mum has gone.

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

Just my view, but I doubt that Edward is close to the Wales boys. One never seems to hear anything about it, or see them together. Also, the antipathy between Charles and Edward (especially relating to Edward´s company trying to film William at university without his consent) would not have helped

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.
I couldn'e agree with you more, and I think this is the feeling of the general public!

At least she looks happy... But honestly I think it is a nice picture even if she has the tiniest double chin. I wouldn't complain if my chin looked like that!

I have always loved Sophie. She has such a natural beauty about her. However, sometimes I think she looks much dowdier than she really is. Maybe she is just not that obsessed with clothes, and has more important things to think about :)

We see almost no photos of Lady Louise. Though come to think of it, Princess Anne allowed few public photos of her children when they were growing up.

Here is a pic of the only painting the Countess of Wessex has ever sat for. Edward and Sophie don't normally sit for artists, but the Queen Alexander Nursing Corps was adament that they wanted a painting. Here it is. I'm interested to know what you guys think of it. It was painted a while back. I personally don't like it at all, it seems all wrong, from Sophie's outfit and hair to the composition of the painting itself. I expect that something is missing on the chair.

Oh wow that really is not a very flattering portrait, the Countess is barely recognisable. I think perhaps they should have had her sit instead of standing and I’m not sure her purse is really necessary. The entire thing, like you said, just seems all wrong.
