What a lovely surprise to see Sophie! She never attends Wimbledon, but they did ask her yo take over Katherine Kent's patronage as Sophie plays Real Tennis with Edward. Apparently Sophie declined.

What patronage of Katherine Kents are you referring to? The Duchess of Kent has never had an official function at Wimbledon that I know of. She used to hand out the ladies trophies as the wife of HRH The Duke of Kent who remains President of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, but that was not an official patronage of hers so no one could take over something that did not exist. The Queen is the Patron of the club.

Perhaps I was wrong in choosing the word "patronage", but Wimbledon did want Sophie to take part in the presenting of trophies and play a part in Wimbledon.

Wimbledon want Countess of Wessex - from 2010. There have also been recent articles discussing it as they now obviously want Catherine to be a part in it, and they have mentioned that Sophie declined to participate in anything related to it.

Very beautiful pictures and Sophie is always amazing. Looks like she had a great time.

What lovely photos! I love the look of absolute pleasure on Sophie's face when she was looking at the butterflies. And of course the photo with the group of children is delightful too.

If you have never been to an enclosed butterfly garden - please go soon! The same for hummingbird enclosures. Take your children, family children, children of friends. It is a delight!

Not sure if it's the right thread, as Earl and Countess joined HM at Gloriana on river Thames.

Countess looks AMAZING. Queen is simply lovely!

Countess is at Coronation festival today, but as I see only Rex covered her so far, I wouldn't count on many pics in papers if at all. I posted link to watermarked gallery in current news of royal family thread.
Btw there are pics of Sophie with Louise and James
