Today Countess attended Order of Garter which I'm sure is covered in different section of this forum.

Thanks Anna! I love the image of Sophie on the bed with the little child - how lovely and very maternal. This woman needs to be a special education teacher right now. She needs to sack off being an HRH and do teaching!

Oh, Molly I so agree! Truer words have never been said! As a former special education student myself, I can only say that had Sophie been my special ed teacher, I would have been thrilled! The only problem would be me not wanting to come home from school!
When this happens, how do I sign up to be her class helper?
On a serious note, Britain is lucky to have Sophie as an HRH.....

haha, I would not come home either! I want to be a class helper too, we can job share!

Yes we are lucky to have her as an HRH, and I am kind of glad she is getting more recognition as well. I am pleased it is Sophie who has been chosen to present the Queen's Vase tomorrow in memory of Sir Henry Cecil

It is a race ran at Royal Ascot tomorrow in memory of Sir Henry Cecil, a very famous and wonderful race horse trainer who was favoured by the Queen. He trained Frankel, a very famous and successful flat race horse that was never beaten in any of his races.

“When she came in it was expected she would have an official escort, but she forgot all about that and instead held hands with the children, which was lovely to see.”

That says so much about Sophie.

Thanks for the info! And the article- made me get a lump in my throat! You're right- it says so much about her!

Oh, do get in line, because I'm gonna want dibs as well . And, I do agree that the UK is lucky to have someone like Sophie. She's such a caring person, and does a great deal for her country. Like Molly said, it's delightful to see her getting some recognition. She certainly deserves it .

I guess the three of us will have to share the task of helping Sophie in her classroom . Good thing special ed. rooms almost always require more than one assistant. And, I do agree with all that you said in regards to Sophie. She's definitely one of a kind.

I think something is changing and Countess is getting a bit more coverage.
I do tweet, post on FB and am in touch with reporters etc.
People from that article were incredibly nice for me.
MedEquip4Kids
I got to see middle pic of a Countess in HQ.
And I do agree she would be an amazing teacher. But as HRH she can help so many more children and people....

Yes, countess will present a Queen's Vase.
Today she attended Ascot fay 1. Huge gallery is at Zimbio!!
