I suppose it's because they don't do enough engagements to deem two separate threads, however Catherine does have her own and Sophie does more than she does.

Thanks for the update, good to see Edward in my home country!

@RoyalReporter: Another royal visit to Northern Ireland. Prince Edward today went to Ardaluin Outdoor Activity Centre in Newcastle, Co Down.
Absolutely - I'd do more posting if there were two threads. Honestly it confuses me that the dual and two kinds of solo adventures all get lumped together. Replies about him get mixed in with relies about her. Up the Wessex-es!

Countess already had several outings & receptions, but of course none of it, was covered by press. So we can only hope that the event organizers will finally share some pics. However as those were mostly evening receptions, we may see zero of it...

Here are some pics and information about the Earl of Wessex' visit to Northern Ireland on February 12 that has been mentioned above.


Edward visited the 2nd Battalion The Rifles Regiment at Ballykinler Military Base, he re-opened Ardaluin Outdoor Activity Centre, Newcastle and attended a reception at Hillborough Castle for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

This story dates back to Canada visit, but it is too good to not be shared:

So far she has only carried out engagements on 8 days this year and according to my count a total of 12 engagements. Thus there hasn't been much to report on her doing. 45 days have passed for the CC so far so she has been out and about officially on about 17% of the days of the year.

She will pick up a bit, particularly if they do an overseas tour, which is when her numbers went up last year - if my memory serves me correctly but I can't check my figures as I lost the file when my previous computer crashed.

But she had those engagaments, and those didn't end up being covered by the press.
But Catherine's belly has reached all of them.
To me they keep Sophie and rest of the "lower" royals in the shadow, to keep promoting, especially lately Camilla and Charles, along with Kate, William, and Harry. Rest is simply left...

Thanks Anna!

Sophie's work is never widely reported no matter how busy she is. It's half term this week so I don't think Sophie has any work this week because of the kiddies.

The reason for that is simple - Charles is the heir to the throne followed by William so of course they, and their spouses will be covered. Catherine's baby bump is the third in line to the throne effectively so of course it gets more coverage. In time even Harry will get less coverage as he becomes the minor line (he effectively became a 'minor' royal when the pregnancy was announced and will be completely reduced to minor status once the new baby - a future monarch arrives - when he will just be another royal to fill out the duty roster on occasions - like Andrew, Edward, Sophie, Anne, Richard, Brigitte and Edward of Kent do now.

Tiny is better than none though!

I am looking forward to hopefully seeing Sophie with Philip tomorrow as Sophie is stepping in for the Queen to host MP's with Philip at Buckingham Palace tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Yes, she will attend - tt was confirmed by royal reporters, it was on her itinerary before HM got sick, but because HM will be absent tomorrow there is strong chance they will photograph Sophie. As there should be press coverage.

Yes, Sophie was scheduled to attend but now she is hosting it with Philip as opposed to just attending.

I know, it's exciting.
PS Step by Step answered to my question about size of the pics! They even said they will sort it tomorrow :) "Oh dear. Slight technical issue. Will have it sorted tomorrow! Apologies." How great is that!
