Well you are excellent and need to keep looking! I love all photos of Sophie, so any is a bonus.

Yes, I realize they are strictly honorary.

Nor do I blame him for dropping out of the military if he didn't think it was right for him; I blame him for rigging himself out in a lot of medals and uniforms that he hasn't earned, and that everyone knows he hasn't earned.

(And I can't help wondering whether any of those regiments are truly pleased to have him? )

Do you feel the same way when the Princess Royal appears in military uniform?

Yes, I do.

I don't like to see anyone in faux uniforms; it is an insult to the people who have earned them, imo.

I understand that many people don't agree, but it is just my pov.

Edward doesn't wear medals he earned. None of his medals are for service... They are Jubilee medals and commemorative medals. Not for any service...

And I am sure his regiments are pleased to have him, just as any regiment is pleased to have a Royal Colonel.

I know people will always feel that way about Edward, and I am glad you said you feel the same about Anne wearing uniforms as people always give Edward grief, but not Anne. They say Edward is lazy and doesn't work, but that is because his engagements are never listed in the articles stating "hard working Royals". Edward works just as hard as his brothers and sisters and Sophie works hard, even though she is technically "part time" (she is supposed to work 3 days a week).
