Sophie looked great at Ascot. I wonder if she is going tomorrow as well.

Sophie

Hope I linked this correctly. In my opinion... does Sophie look a little thick about the waist in the pictures or is it just the cut of the coat she is wearing?

I would agree with you, but it could be the coat and an uncomplementary photo angle. Look at the new pic of Sophie arriving. Nothing there. The belt might simply be emphasising.

Nice to see Chirstopher, David and Zara Rhys-Jones there. Now that is family support.

Hey Sophe, hon, that satellite dish look thing on your head is getting a little old. Mix in a normal, symmetrical, colorful hat -- just to keep the look fresh, hmm? Thanks much.

I am not sure either about those flat hats she looks stunning in a hat with a wider brim but these are just a bit of fun .....I guess. The gray suit is nice but I am sorry she isn't in something brighter. Never mind at least she's there.

Pics

Hi Sydney

I put the pics in a photos bucket so that their order wouldn't be jumbled out later.

ceg_2002/sophie - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

First pic: Prince Edward and Christopher Rhys-Jones. It was his 86th Birthday on the 19 June (the day before)

Forth Pic: From right - Daivid Rhys-Jones (next to his wife), Zara Rhys-Jones than Sophie and Sophie's cousin daughter of Theo Rhys-Jones. (I'm certain of te other two but this might not be right - please correct me if I'm wrong, but they really look like Rhy-Jones)

Seventh and Eighth: Sophie with Lord Ivar Mountbatten.

Any reason why she didn't ride in a carraige at Ascot this year?

Hair pins :)

No reason was given as to why Sophie and Anne and the Kents and Princess Alexander didn't ride in the procession. Might simply have been their time of arrival.

Is it my imagination, or did she recycle the satellite dish hat for Ascot? (If not, it bears an unfortunate resemblance IMO.)

hey! thats really lovely of you and thank you for the explanations.
i am just really surprised by the looking of david and zara, well i ve looked for older photos from the windsor horse show, and mh i think they changed a lot and i can't really believe it, but i am not as well informed... =)

http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h2...y/52823199.jpg

I'm sorry if this was already said but there are so many names thrown about. Are the two boys Sophie's nephews then?

I think the last was their ski vacation in March or April, right? I think it is strange that they don't bring her out and about much, not even to events where other children in both families are like the Windsor horse show. Edward's nieces and nephews all used to go to the Windsor horse show as children. Why don't they bring Louise? It's not like I'm suggesting they put her on display just for us, but why don't they bring anywhere, ever? It's strange.

Sophie was the only Royal lady not to ride in a carraige at Ascot this year. Camilla and Princess Michael rode together, Princess Anne and the Duchess of Gloucester rode together two days later and Princess Alexandra was in the carraige behind them. (The Duchess of Kent wasn't there but she hasn't attended for years) That's why I find it odd.

My understanding is that Edward and Sophie attended Ascot with Sophie's father and other members of her family. Assuming they arrived and remained together as a group, a separate "carriage arrival" on the Ascot course would have been out of the question.
