Her Royal Highness (Royal Colonel) meets soldiers and army families from 5th Battalion The Rifles on her first engagement since the birth of her son, Viscount Severn, in December 2007. The engagement took place on 10 and 11 September 2008

I remember the skirt from last year, but I can't remember having
seen her with glasses before, she obviously needs them for driving.

She looks great, and I like this outfit! The Lions Club do very good work. There's one not a quarter-mile from where I live. Perhaps Sophie will show up there one day. I can dream, can't I?

Thanks a lot for that, sydney00
Now as you've said so, I also remember pics of her wearing
glasses, for example before her marriage. Maybe she only
needs them for details as you've mentioned or she even has
contact lenses the other days..

Prince Edward gay? Nope.
Prince Albert (of Monaco) gay? Nope.

It's interesting how spectacularly wrong those rumors turned out to be.

This is interesting. It is a grammatical error in the way Prince Edward's titles were written but if you look at the webpage of Ocean Youth Trust - it would appear that Baby James Windsor has his first patronage. Look right at the bottom.

Viscount Severn must be the subsidiary title of the Earl of Wessex.

Yes, I totally agree on both points. Hopefully we'll see more of Sophie and her red suit now that Christmas is approaching.

Here is some news headlines.
Countess returns to town for concert
Countess of Wessex opens new children's centre (From Somerset County Gazette)

I've seen that Edward and Sophie have really added to their engagements at the end of the year, it almost as if they are attempting to visit every single one of their charities and Patronages. They are even bundling them together - eg. The Wallace collection (Sophie's) is hosting the DOE (Edward's)

Is there any engagements that Sophie Countess of Wessex has planned?
It seems that the Wessex's have been quiet.

C of W doesn't seem to have done much this year, the reason seems to be maternity leave, but she would have a nanny. And there has been no corresponding reduction in the Wessex's annual allowance. However, when she does have an engagement she is wonderful.

Actually Sophie is doing a number of engagements going into the Christmas season. They just aren't covered by the media.
Take a look at the engagment section at the official website.
