It's likely related to the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, but it's good news.

Hopefully he'll get decent coverage.

Harry is in the US May 9-15, so there should be some momentum leading into Edwards visit 1 week later.

We are always willing to welcome members of the royal family with open arms in America.

Edward & the DofE Awards may get a mention in the local paper of whatever city he visits but that will be about it. He certainly will not get the attention that Harry will get meeting with disabled vets.

That was a great article on Sophie. She's a beautiful wife, mother and a hardworking member of the royal family. I really liked the pictures, especially the one of her and the Duchesses of Cornwall & Cambridge.

But I remember reading very similar article I believe in Telegraph last year, and I thought, wow, they finally noticed her, but that was it. They "notice" her occassionaly on some big royal gatherings, but that is it.
They still won't bother to cover her work I'm afraid...

As the Earl and Countess attended the BAFTA reception at Windsor Castle along with other members of the Royal Family, posts discussing their attendance have been moved to the British Royal Family current events thread.

Yes, I read recently that there was some concern about Edward's trip, because so far all the interest and enthusiasm is for Harry!

No one seems to care much about Edward's visit, especially since Sophie won't be with him and won't even spark comment about her clothes.

But perhaps if Harry's visit is the huge success that's anticipated, some of it may carry over to Edward.

I think it will be of interest to all of those involved in the DoE award scheme. I dont think anyone expects thousands of screaming young girls or celebrities to turn out - just people who have worked hard and got an award, their families and those who helped them get there.

A bit off topic but I have just watched a couple of videos on AP Archive of the Royal family and there's one of Edward and Sophie doing an engagement in 2001 and Sophie calls him Ed. How nice! Edward seems so formal so it's nice to see she calls him Ed. I read that Edward calls her Soph.

WOW. She looks gorgeous. The photograph is very nice, the colour palete is subtle but very good. Sophie's choice of wardrobe seems like a good choice for an official photograph and her smile is the first thing you notice. It's a 5* photograph
