This is a link to Sophie's speech today. ITs from the Monarchy website. Taking the Royal Salute at the Passing Out Parade is a high status event.

Yes, it's an honor to take the salute at this event. I think the Queen Mother, Princess of Wales and Princess Royal have taken this salute in the past. Sophie did a great job.

I agree, it has Sophie's spirit. I wouldn't be surprised if she would wrote it all by herself...
" I know that only a matter of days ago you were undergoing your final exercise and therefore you have only had a short time to practice and prepare for this important parade, which makes what you have done today and how you have turned out all the more impressive. I actually had cause to think of you all as I believe some of the other cadets on parade today were also on exercise near to here and as we happened to chose the same night to camp out in the garden with the children only a mere few miles from here we managed shared and enjoyed each and every explosion as much as you did!...
You have had to overcome combined pressures of working in an alien culture, in many cases in a foreign language, as well as our British weather. I commend you...."

Love Sophie's speech. The part about taking the kids camping...
@ Dman - Yes, QETQM, the PR, and the POW have all taken the salute in the past...

Shows two things:

lack of knowledge of military training - they started training for that parade the day the entered their training as marching is one of the first skills they learn and they learn all those skills very early - two to three days to perfect that parade is plenty after all the time they have spent doing parades.

whoever wrote it should be shot for writing so poorly - if that was written by one of my students I would be writing - use SENTENCES to break up your long-winded thoughts - poor construction.

Having a bad day?

i read the speech to my other half who spent over 20 years in the military andhe thought it hit all the right notes for these new officers. I accept what he says cos he was a Warrant Officer Class1 in the British Army. These are the people that officers go to when they are not sure what to do.

good speech, IMO and that of my WO1

I hadn't noticed the bit about camping in the garden, THAT is cute. My parents never did that with us, but their garden is much bigger and much more secure!

uhm...
While I agree, that the sentence is quite long and weird in construction, we don't know if the speech has been transfered to the monarchy site as it should be, even so, knowing Sophie ability to speak and read, I'm sure it was said with perfect pronunciation.
Btw, prefer speech written from the bottom of the heart by Sophie, than automatic speech that would be written for her.
PS Sorry for all the mistakes I could have made, as english is not my native languge. Don't shoot me.

Thanks for the link, Anna. I love the photo with the majority of them at the front of the boat. Sophie looks beautiful and I didn't realise the Gloucester's and Duke of Kent were there too.

Scroll way down. There are 2 pics from grouse shooting, I think taken today.
I see Prince Edward, and Princess Royal with her husband.
And I believe I see Sophie on a first pic, in the first row of people in sort of tartan hat. She walks with Peter and Autumn Kelley if I'm not mistaken.
