In the UK, wives take the style and title from their husbands unless theirs is higher. Edward's style and title are higher than hers, so she took them. Only a female born an HRH would be HRH Princess Her-given-name. A woman who is not becomes HRH Princess His-given-name. Sophie would be HRH The Princess Edward if Edward didn't get a title (like Prince and Princess Michael).

I remember the leather pants and the furor it caused. I also think Diana wore a fur wrap or something early on and got a lot of criticism so wore fake after that and MADE SURE the press knew it was faux!

Yes, part of it is the age difference. But when Diana was that age, she wasn't "allowed" to wear things like that by the press even at private functions. Does anyone remember the red leather pants, black leather jacket and red and black striped silk blouse Diana wore privately to a play? Not one of her better outfits, but the press jumped all over the outfit because the pants were leather and therefore perceived as daring.

Yes, I agree one of the factors has to whether the function is private or official. But even at private functions these women are scrutinized and judged for "inappropriate" attire. While Zara wears what she wants with impunity and often with admiration.

The fur is a perfect example. Both were worn at "private" functions. Sophie's hat set off afirestorm and she hasn't worn fur since. Zara is called a trendsetter.

Of course now we can get into a discussion of "private" vs "official" events. Is Ascot, the Christmas church parade, etc "official" or "private"?

I loved Diana but she did give mixed messages and Sophie is a classic. Diana did not like sharing the spotlight and really got angry behind the scenes when reporters noted a resemblance between the two. Privately, she thought Sophie was trying to ride her fashion coattails. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, perhaps Sophie was trying to use Diana as a role model for awhile but she definitely has her own style now and is really lovely. And I, too, loved the story!

I understand Sophie been spent night at Buckingham Palace but Sophie cant slept with him because of Queen's rules! i understand her rules.I never knew that Prince Edward have her phone number when both have dating! i read Majesty's magazine of Sophie's 40th birthday they're talking about her life with Prince Edward how met him! since her dating with Prince Edward for 6 years since 1993.

im sure Sophie always obey to Prince Edward and Queen before both got married that good choice!

Doesn't HRH look radiant on her birthday?

I think the Countess has been a great success as a royal. After an initial difficult period Sophie must now be one of the hardest working members of our wonderful royal family.
And doesn't she look radiant on her birthday? I love her boots!
