My now 22-year old daughter was a 30-week, 2-1/2 pound (1300g) preemie who developed exotropia when she was quite young. Patching did not work, and we were advised to have her undergo surgery before she started school i.e. learned to read. It was explained to us that the longer the eyes don't work together properly, the greater the chance that the brain, confused by the double images it receives, will "turn off" one of the eyes altogether. She had the surgery when she was four, which consisted of moving the muscles on her eyes, and now has almost normal binocular vision. Obviously the Wessexes have excellent medical advice so there must be more to Louise's condition than just the exotropia. The surgery is not all that complicated and has been around for at least 18 years as we learned from personal experience.

I vaguely remember reading something a long time ago about how they did have some medical treatment for it when she was much smaller, so maybe it was much worse and has been treated and got better i know a few people with similar but less noticable eye issues who have had treatment to make it better but it is still noticeable. I agree that Sophie and Edward probably had goog reasons for the decisions we made and we don't know the full facts so can't pass judgement.

Lovely to see the family all together though and seeing more of the Wessex children (i guess maybe the exposure of being a bridesmaid may have relaxed sophie and edward's normal view a little bit)

So they were right? uhu!
Renata, We all will be cheering for Her Majesty, this year has began great and let's wish it stays like that :)
Rosapru, William looks wonderful in any uniform, I'm surprised they were able to catch him under that hat. How is the weather in London this days? It looks like he could be melting, but his sense of duty won't let it show!

The whole family is there to cheer Her Majesty's favorite. Nice!

So Prince Harry, The Cambridges, Te Duke of York, The Wessexes, Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie will all join the The Queen to cheer.

Kate looks great. I love her shoes. So it looks like quite a few royals came out. Looking forward to seeing all of the photos.

I'm liking Eugenie's look here, Classy! Not so sure about Betarice's choices.

Lovely to see the whole family with the Queen. Kate looks really good so does Sophie.
They are lucky the sun is shining and the sky is bright.

Anyone noticed that Prince Harry's flower in his pocket matches the Queens outfit

I don't like the matronly print of Beatrice's dress or the found-it-in-the-attic-looking fascinator, but Eugenie's look is fresh and cute (from what I can see so far).

Kate Middleton looks white hot at the Epsom Derby - mirror.co.uk

Princess Eugenie looks lovely - nice and summery. I'm not feeling Beatrice's outfit though.
