I've just been looking at the engagements section of the official website, and I've noticed that next week one engagement involving Edward, and two engagements involving Sophie have been cancelled.

I wonder why?

Hello pollyemma

Re your post #25 - I quite agree with you. I actually like the suit and the boots but definately not together. IMO if she had knee high books it would have looked much better (or a longer skirt :p )

Regards
Scott :)

Well done Countess for supporting the sport and it looks like HRH is a very good shot!

To quote from the Sun:

"Edward, 41, also took part in the shoot with a group of seven men.
Andrew Tyler of Animal Aid accused Sophie of being “despicably cruel”."

Why then is Sophie the only one getting attacked for this? I don't want to get into a discussion over shooting so i am not going to comment my views on if i am pro shooting or not, but if Edward and seven other men were there then why is Sophie the only one the articles are centered around? I know the Sun are not a reliable scource and are not exactly pro-Royal but all of the papers are reporting the same view, it amazes me how bored and desperate for a story they must be.

It's a cheap shot at Sophie's expense.

Did they ate the pheasants they shot?
I'm against killing for sport any animal but here in the USA people who live in the country areas kill deer but they are eaten. Plus is also the only way to control the population since the major predators are not common any longer. Same with wild turkeys and rabbits/hares. Even alligators are part of southern cuisine! And now there are even ostrich and buffalo farms to mass produce them for food.
I won't eat any of those things, I'm old fashioned steak, pork and chicken guy, but if the animal is for food (and not for fur) I don't see anything wrong either on what Sophie of Wessex did.

I think the media is trying to make a story out of nothing more than the Countess participating in a perfectly legal and enjoyable country pursuit. As for HRH being described as 'cruel and heartless' is a ridiculous statement. The Countess is a dedicated campaigner for charities and works very hard representing those causes. Who do these people think they are criticising the Countess?
I hope HRH continues to shoot and enjoy her sport...

It seems like people are willing to criticize her for anything. :( I don't see this as a big deal at all. Mountain out of a mole-hill?

But are there any pictures from this event?

Sophie at the RNID engagement

Hi everyone. Sophie looked really happy and radiant on Monday, which was nice to see as she's had some tough times, what with the death of her mother and concern over Louise's eye. {ed}

Let's hope Sophie, Edward and Louise have some happier times ahead of them in 2006.

Merry Christmas everybody :)

Joanne

YES, the royal family eats what they shoot. They even send some home with their geasts, and some is sold in the royal stores at Windsor castle/(Balmoral? not sure) The corgis even get some.

What's going on with the Wessexes lately? We used to see at least Sophie attending 3-4 events a week and now we hardly see her at all. Is it because the media is now following Camilla more even though Sophie is still doing her regular duties? Or has she totally cut back on her schedule to 1 or 2 a month?

I read that she was going to cut back, but even when she was the second lady in the land, a lot of her engagements went unreported in the national media. For most members of the RF, you have to look in the local media to see coverage of their duties. Otherwise, you would miss the contributions the Gloucesters, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra make altogether.
