That sounds like quite a current event to me!! Edward's one of the BRF whom I'd travel to see--within reason. I wouldn't go out of the province or anything like that. I've always found him interesting.

She does look thinner, yes. I think that she's even more beautiful than she was 10 years ago, though. I remember seeing her in the skirt that matches that top and thinking what a grand outfit it was, though it looks nice with the black skirt as well.

Sophie's my favourite Royal lady next to the Queen. She just keeps getting better and better.

There are times I wish that I could smack Edward. I am afraid that he takes liberties with his personal freedom with no regard for the risks. The other day he was walking that dogs in Hyde Park with no bodyguard in sight. No even a month ago, a terrorist was found with plans of all the royal homes including Bagshot Park, and he is personally mentioned as a target. He must really start thinking about his family, and by that I mean Sophie and the kids.

Unless no one knows of his plans to walk his dogs, I doubt he's in real danger.
I actually noticed him because he was right in front of me. Pretty much everyone else didn't even cast a second glance at him. He was just another man walking down the street.

As long as he doesn't walk the dogs at the same time everyday. Besides, just because the bodyguards aren't visible doesn't mean they're not there or that he isn't wearing a tracking device.

It might sound strange, but I always liked her. Even through the "fake sheik" business and her courtship and engagement to Edward. My feeling was that there was more to her than the grasping social climber/mini-Diana (take your pick) that she was portrayed as.

I agree with all, I have come from not much of an opinion of Sophie to think she is a great asset to the royal family. Beautiful too. At the moment she is, after the Queen, the member of the BRF I like the most.

At long last we get to see some pictures of Lady Louise. (The ones of James have already appeared in the press.)
As for fotographers only concentrating in senior royals, what a shame! There are so many interesting "minor" royals such as the Linleys, Lady Helen, Lady Sarah Chatto as well as those gorgeous young people Frederic and Gabrielle. I hope the press will do the great pleasure of showing them to us in their normal functions.

I'm sorry, but what pictures of Lady Louise? Have some been posted elsewhere? Please let me know where they are as I'd love to see her.
