No, only the Queen has ladies in waiting. But it is an odd question because she does have an enqurier that probably does the exact work. But they only call them ladies in waiting when they are in the Queen's service.

Sophie does have a Lady in Waiting - apparently she's called Annabelle Galletley.

I found the following article, which states she accompanied Sophie on an engagement: www.blease.com/rdas/pages/ html/dDocuments/Press%20Releases.PDF

The 'title' lady in waiting is only used to refer to the Queen's equeries or valets. It is an honour only the highest lady in the land has. Sophie does have someone who does the job the lady in waiting does for the Queen but it is simply titled something else. You can imagine the jokes that will incur if Prince Charles' valet was called his gentleman in waiting.

From the The Queen's official website

"Like The Queen, lady members of the Royal Family appoint their own Ladies-in-Waiting."

okay, although Princess Anne tends to deny it.

Edward and Sophie are in France the whole of this week, for the British ski championships. Kind of a working holiday?

I've looked as well. It is understandable that we didn't see any pics from their holiday, as Ed and Sophie don't give the press any photo calls. But I thought that they would have some of them at the Ski Championship but I have not found any either. I did not realise that Snow sports were so unpopular in Britian I can bearly find anything about it on the web. I found something that might explain it. The race today, the Super-G was cancelled due to soft snow.

Here are some more photos of Edward and Sophie, yesterday at the British Land Ski Championship. Source: Rex Features. I'm afraid that this is as big as they get.

I think that that caption is wrong - or maybe just confused. Edward and Sophie were at St. Moritz (?) last week for their holiday. This week they were at Meribel for the British Land Ski Championships. They attended a function a day and handed out the award of the previous day event. I know that Tuesday's event the Super - G was cancelled, and it is possible that Wednesday event was cancelled as well.
I don't know much about sking but the event was cancelled due to soft snow. Could the championship have been cancelled, but the tourist skiing events remain open? I don't think anything wrong in Edward and Sophie skiing if the event they were suppose to attend was cancelled.

Claire did you read somewhere that they were at a private holiday in St. Moritz?

If yes, where?
I tried to figure out where they were the last week but failed.
