It is the dress she wore to Mette-Marits and Haakons wedding. She looked gorgeous twice...:)

The Countess has really much belly in this photo:) Is that because of the dress or some other reason?

and beacuse the fabric is shiny, where the light doesn't hit the dress it appears dark, and comes out black in the photo. Which gives a distorted look, which then gives rise to pregnancy speculation. Photos can lie.

That dress is cut so that she looks pregnant every time she wears it. She wore it to Haakon's wedding in August 2001 and looked pregnant then, too, even though she couldn't have been if she was only 6 weeks along when the ectopic pregnancy ended in December. It's just a poorly designed dress in fabric that doesn't work for her figure,\.

check it out at Countess of Wessex at Chelsea Flower Show without Prince Edward on Hello Magazine



Rockers and royals alike turned to flower power this week as the annual Chelsea Flower Show got underway in London. Sophie Wessex was pictured sharing a joke with 88-year-old Army veteran Wally Offord at one of the displays, while former Beatle Ringo Starr came along to open another of the other attractions.

The Countess joined Wally for a pint of Spitfire Bitter at the Chelsea Pensioners' Garden. Built to look like an idyllic oasis from the England of 1945, the design aimed to recreate "a soldier's dream of Blighty".

And Sophie wasn't the only royal enjoying the fun. Her husband Prince Edward and brother in law Prince Andrew were there too. Princess Anne was meanwhile doing the honours at the launch of a new rose by horticultural company Harkness, who rewarded her for her efforts with a full basket of the pale pink "Elisabeth Casson" bloom.

The annual event also attracted some big names from the world of showbiz. Rod Stewart arrived hand in hand with his bride-to-be Penny Lancaster, while veteran actor Michael Caine was likewise spotted checking out the verdant creations. Green-fingered musician Ringo Starr was on hand to open the 4head Garden, which is one of this year's biggest attractions.

"It's absolutely lovely very peaceful and pleasant," said the performer. "I'm a keen gardener myself and I really love being in the garden. I've got gardens at my homes in England, Monaco, LA and Colorado. Every time I come to the Chelsea Flower Show I pick up ideas that I take back home and use."

Yes, they were. A portuguese channel showed them talking with some people (english tourist) in the area. The Heir of the portuguese throne, Dom Duarte, said that Edward is very shy!
