I like her hair longer, but I also really liked it when it was shoulder length. It is nice that she wears it up a lot more now though. Thanks for the image Anna.

Love the pics of Sophie with the children and eldery! How precious is she cuddling that baby? William and Kate's baby is going to be so lucky to have an Aunt Sophie....Love the pic of her chatting to the old lady in the hospital bed. I know what it is like to be stuck for days on end in the hospital..... boring and lonely. If I had had someone like Sophie come to visit me, I would have been thrilled.

Thank you so much to all the articles and video of today. It is lovely to see Sophie moved by the proceedings and so lovely to see her embrace the elderly man. What a lovely lady! The picture of her bending down and holding her arms to the little girl with the blue school uniform on and curly hair is lovely!

On a side note, not a fan of the dress at all! I love her shoes though.

It seems Edward and Sophie are visiting Slovenia in June after they visit Romania.

Link.

Sophie and Edwards tireless work is recognised by the people it helps, and that's better than any press story IMO.

I feel the same way, there is ususally a coverage in local press, and thanks god for FB and twitter. But other than that, not too much...
And I will keep saying it's a shame, as they both do (Sophie and Edward) amazing job.

Very touching video from today:

Very very moving video. This old man's words about Sophie giving them back their dignity almost made me cry.

And completely agree with you Lumutqueen on this:
