I know, I was shocked myself. It was really quite a nice article about Sophie, especially the end when they said she had an enduring marriage and would be at Edward's side as he becomes the Duke of Edinburgh. No doubt the next article about her will not be as complimentary.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex are on their Summer holidays this week, in Portugal.

Images.

Images from 15.7.11, as the website states. I am unable to get bigger images, sorry. The images of Edward holding James are adorable.

Thank you for the link Molly.

Is it just me, or did James' hair get a little lighter? He looked almost blonde to me in some of those shots. Sophie looks very summer-y in her white dress (or maybe a swim suit cover-up). Glad they're relaxing and getting some sun. Wonder if they'll make it down to Balmoral for a little bit, to spend time with the rest of the family.

Yes lovely photos indeed. This couple really seem to be trying hard and are good ambassadors for the royal family despite their failed business ventures. I just wish Sophie would pay more attention to her hair. It just never looks brushed or properly done. Come on Sophie you can look so lovely...

I agree. We also have to take into account that they're not just on a beach, but on a beach with two young children. In that case, it's best to be as comfortable as possible, and hair in the face would not be a good idea when you're dealing with sand and water and heat. She looks just right for the occasion.

No problemo!

I agree; I think they look perfect for holidays. Who on Earth pays that much attention to themselves when they're on holiday and on the beach with their children. They seem to be enjoying themselves, which is the main thing.

I am starting to see the resemblance of Prince Charles as a child and young James from these images. Perhaps it's the brown hair, haha.

The Daily Mail writing a positive article on Sophie? It must be a sign The End of the World is at hand!!

;oD

Thanks to one and all for the links and pictures. They look like they're enjoying their Beach Vacation. :o)

Okay I am about to have one of my bad girl moments. Looking at the beach photos of the Wesssex family Edward does not have a bad body for a 47 year old man. He may not win a male hot body contest but he seems to have aged well. Okay that's it bad girl moment over.

We were talking about the photos at lunch today and two of my friends, both keen Royal-Watchers, were commenting on the type of holiday that Edward and his family were enjoying [upmarket, yes, but not totally 'jet-set' - more the type of family holiday enjooyed by many middle class families] and the rather more 'flash' holidays that Sarah, Duchess of York deemed appropriate to her lifestyle.

Just an obervation, not meant to offend,
Alex

I couldn't agree more. Edward and Sophie's summer holiday is that of which many of us experienced as young children (sans a Nanny, mind); beach, wet suit, sunhat and big t-shirts to protect us from the sun.

It bothered me slightly, however, that they had the nanny...I know they have to, and probably wanted to, but I imagine they are both capable of keeping an eye on their children without their nanny. I am pleased to see that they have had the same nanny for both their children though, and continued to use her. Good stability for the children.

Thanks for the images. Edward always has a little hankerchief in his suit pocket. I like that touch.

The Royal family must be exhausted after these short trips as they spend two days there, but the flight is long and with jet lag etc. They still remain so upbeat!

In Pic2, Prince Edward looks like that other Prince Edward, i.e. The Duke of Kent.
