I don't think Sophie is billionaire. She have some many because she have a producer, isn't it. But Diana is more richer. I listen that she let a lot of many for Willian and Harry.

A old pic. I belive is taken after the wedding. Sophie is very elegant in this.     I love the hat  
This is from 1999, attending Catrina Skepper's wedding. It was about two months before their own wedding. Great photo of both of them.

Sophie's family was not rich or artistocratic like Diana's. Her father managed a tire factory and her mother occasionally took in typing jobs for extra money. I consider Sophie's story a real Cinderella story - not born rich, meets her prince, falls in love, and still seems happy.

The Royal Family Order is a badge worn by female members of the Royal Family, personally bestowed by The Queen. They date from the reign of George IV and have been instituted in one form or another by Queen Victoria, King Edward VII, King George V, King George VI and The Queen. Family Orders are worn pinned to the left shoulder at formal evening occasions when other orders and decorations are worn.
when a bestowed memeber dies, do the frames get resued in future generations?
it would be expensive to continually get them made.

for example, Princess Alice has 3 - would the frames be used when Charles in king and gives his daughter-in-laws and nieces one? [/b][/quote]
No. For example: When Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone died in 1981, her family orders (Victoria and Albert, Edward VII, George V, Elizabeth II - I don&#39;t believe she had the George VI) were inherited by her daughter Lady May Abel Smith who removed the crowns from the frames and used the remaining frames and portraits as brooches. I would assume that these modified brooches have been inherited by Lady May&#39;s three children.

"The Queen is planning a "girl power" lunch to celebrate successful
women, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
Celebrated women from the arts, media, law and business, including
JK Rowling and Cherie Booth, will be at the gathering next month.

The Queen, the Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal will mingle
with up to 200 invited guests.

A palace spokeswoman said the event on 11 March, three days after
International Women&#39;s day, was the first of its kind.

The three women will dine with glamorous guests such as Mobo awards
organiser Kanya King, Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman and Tamara
Mellon, of the Jimmy Choo shoe label.

Others on the invite list include 60s icon Twiggy, journalist Sheena
McDonald, former athlete Dame Mary Peters and ex-model Heather Mills
McCartney.

"It will be the first all female event at the Palace. It&#39;s one of
the theme days that we&#39;re having," a Palace spokeswoman said.

"It&#39;s going to be about women and their achievements.

"It&#39;s not just well known people, there will be lots of business
women, women from arts and education and grass roots people."

It will be Sophie&#39;s first engagement since the birth of her
daughter, Lady Louise."

I believe it was asked when the Countess of Wessex would begin her official engagements again, well, as the article said, the lunch on March 11, 2004 will be Her Royal Highnesses first official engagement since the birth of Louise.

Is it safe to assume then that Lady Sarah Chatto inherited Princess Margaret&#39;s orders or did they go to Viscountess Linley??

From Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Royalty, shmoyalty. The guy was walking on the wrong part of the street. Like many a commoner before him, His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex (Prince Charles&#39; younger brother), was scolded by police for ignoring the strict pedestrian code on upscale Belle Meade Boulevard.



Proper use of the boulevard has long been a sore point among Belle Meade residents, who say the walkers and bicyclists create a traffic hazard. They have decreed the only legal place to walk on the boulevard is in the grassy median.


The Belle Meade police noted this — politely — to His misplaced Highness.


"He gently pointed out that we should walk down the middle of the road," said the prince, laughing about the episode during a lecture he presented at an antique show Thursday.


It appears the prince was otherwise well treated in Nashville, or as he put it: "I&#39;ve been spoiled rotten."


Prince Edward helped plant a yellowwood tree at the Cheekwood Botanical Gardens to commemorate his visit.


Nashville Mayor Bill Purcell joined in the ceremonial tree-planting, which was something of a misnomer as the tree was already firmly in the ground.


"It&#39;s one of the easiest trees I&#39;ve had to plant," Prince Edward said. "It&#39;s so much easier when you don&#39;t have to dig the hole first."

That&#39;s a good story. Funny about the tree too.

Sophie&#39;s first engagements will be at the Women&#39;s Day Tea hosted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on the 11 March 2004. I suppose we&#39;ll get some nice photos there.

Hello

Sophie Hobbles Home After Skiing Accident
1 MARCH 2004
Sophie Wessex has returned to Britain on crutches after hurting her leg during a skiing holiday in Switzerland. The Countess had travelled to St Moritz to spend some quality time with husband Prince Edward and their new baby daughter, but her time on the piste was cut short by an injury.

The couple had decided to leave Lady Louise with a nanny while they headed off for some fun on the slopes. And they even hired a helicopter to take them to some more challenging runs in neighbouring Austria.

Things went wrong on Friday, however, when the 39-year-old pulled a muscle in her right leg. The precise details of the accident are not known, but it has been revealed that visibility was poor when she got hurt. Apparently the royal declined the offer of a stretcher, insisting that she could make her own way to a doctor.

"The Countess pulled a calf muscle but it is not serious," revealed her spokeswoman. "She was checked out by a doctor and discharged after 20 minutes. Fortunately nothing was broken."

It&#39;s not the first time Sophie has suffered a spill on the slopes - she also found herself on crutches after a skiing trip in 2000.

Hi,

What do you guys think of this? I would love Sophie to take on a greater public role, as I hope she would achieves a profile away from Edward. But I don&#39;t want her to do something that she could regret later. (It is still in development though, so it might not happen)

I&#39;AM SO GLAD THAT THE COUNTESS OF WESSEX DID NOT CUT HER HAIR AFTER SHE HAD LADY LOUISE. AND THAT PINK GALE SHE HAD ON AT THE RITZ WAS BEAUTIFUL.

Sophie follows in Diana&#39;s footsteps
By Robert Jobson, Evening Standard Royal Correspondent

8 April 2004
The Countess of Wessex is following in the footsteps of Princess Diana to promote a leading charity in Africa.

She is expected to travel to Tanzania in the summer - leaving behind her sevenmonthold daughter, Lady Louise, and husband Prince Edward.

This will be Sophie&#39;s first solo working trip since she married into the Royal Family and follows an approach to promote the charity World Vision by one of Diana&#39;s closest charity associates, Mike Whitlam.

Sophie was seriously ill after her daughter was born and was separated from her for more than six days as she recovered from an emergency caesarean operation.

After the birth of Lady Louise last November, the 39-year-old Countess announced she would not be carrying out any official duties while she and her daughter bonded.

Now she is understood to be ready to carry out royal duties again and one source said today: "The Countess always said she would go back to work for the Royal Family when the time was right.

"Thousands are needlessly left blind every year and she hopes her voice and patronage can help raise awareness of their plight," the source added.

The trip - which is still at the planning stage - marks an important step for the Countess, who until now has only ever travelled abroad with her husband. Sophie has rarely been seen in public since becoming a mother - only pictured at the Queen&#39;s party at the Ritz and at a party at Buckingham Palace for working women.

When she married she said she intended to carry on as a working woman. At first she headed her own PR agency, until she was forced to abandon her commercial business interests after an undercover reporter recorded her making embarrassing comments about the Royal Family and the Prime Minister.

As a result, she agreed to work only on official royal business.

Before she fell pregnant, she agreed to be patron for Orbis, the flying eye hospital, which she hoped would show her as a serious royal.

The charity - which once approached Diana to spearhead its work - flies surgeons to underdeveloped countries to train local doctors to carry out routine eye operations. The plane is also equipped with operating theatres.

An insider said: "Obviously Sophie will miss her daughter badly, but she thinks this is a very important issue and wants to help in any way she can."

Diana travelled extensively in Africa, meeting Aids victims and campaigning against land mines.
