And the Wessex travels commence:

Quote:
12 January 2013 We are extremely pleased that Prince Edward and his wife Sophie Countess of Wessex are going to visit Bulgaria on 14-16 March 2013

Uk In Bulgaria
I would imagine it is related to The Duke of Edinburgh Award.

In March they will visit also Czech republic. For Sophie it will be the first visit of this country. Edward already has visited Czech republic. I think it was in 2005.

They both seem to work hard and do a good job. It is such a shame that since there is nothing bad to say the media says nothing about them. They deserve better coverage.

Well said and too true. It was so sad last Fall when here was Sophie and Edward in Canada and who did we hear more of in the News? William and Kate's tour in the South Pacific. There were nights when there was nothing about the Wessexes and coverage of the Cambridges, which considering was one of the days Sophie spent at that Woman's Shelter in Nunavut, I thought was particularly insulting.

Native Women's Issues/Abuse is a topic here in Canada that while known about, doesn't get as much attention as it should. They must have been overjoyed when they heard Sophie was going to visit them thinking there would be much needed media attention coming their way and instead....

It's like they're the Rodney Dangerfields of the Windsor Family.

I wish I could change that!! About the coverage. I bother royal reporters, I know few of them via Twitter, I wrote to Border Union via FB and Twitter so they would share more pics, but NOTHING... As for press I hate it... It's like someone said, if you work hard and don't give any sensational topic to the news, they don't care.
I am sick and tired of Catherine articles, they write whatever they can think of, just to have her name in the article, so the people would go to their sites and check... Lately Dail Mail had some another rubbish article...
If you want to ask for more pics, here is Border Union site, help me make them! :):
http://www.facebook.com/BorderUnion?ref=stream

Few more articles with tiny pics:
Duke of Buccleuch at bicentenary royal lunch - Community - The Southern Reporter

Border Union 200th anniversary | The Scottish Farmer

Farming community celebrates historic milestone - Local Headlines - Berwick Advertiser

And 2 tiny pics from British Monarchy, size of their pictures is ridiculous to me:

All Countess pics should be in HQ! :)

BTW Countess visited Sainsbury office in London, and had an NSPCC meeting, and of course there are no pics....

Yes, I too think the Wessex's royal duties should be be covered more in the media. Their Canadian visit wasn't an official tour but a regular working visit but I at least the Canadian press should've reported on their visit.

The Wessex's official engagements were given more media attention after their wedding. I used to follow the Wessex's engagements at the time.

Now the attention is on the Cambridges and Prince Harry. That's just how the media works. All senior members of the royal family had a great deal of media attention in they're day. They are pretty used to the media turning to the next generation of royals.

I'm sure the Wessex's don't mind. Their official duties still remain affective.

maybe they don't mind, but they still have loyal followers and new fans, who wish to see them in the press more often...

I share all ur frustations posted above.
But lets face it..Royalty is "royalty' just for a very few people, who are interested in their 'duty'/'work for causes' aspect.
For the majority, they are just another glorified celebrities, who are usually decent, dignified and pretty stable 'in all respects', just they just look at them for glamour/fashion/style..
And no wonder media goes the same way..
Just read an article in the "Wessex visit to Czech" thread. I was appalled by how they introduce and gauge Sophie to readers-"That she is pretty close to Kate and recently she said she was thrilled by her pregnancy"..So they have made it a part of her CV..

They did (especially the CBC) and much more extensively than I would have expected since they are pretty frequent visitors to Canada.

This is beyond ridiculous! I am Kate fan as well (but Sophie is my number one girl), and I am already sick and tired of constant news about her, that gives nothing,just screamy title, with no meaningful words. I fear if it will go on like that, people will hate her, because of stupidity of a press....

I'm a major supporter of The Countess of Wessex too. She's a hard working member of the royal family and at one point she was the center of the media's attention too. Now there's a new kid on the block and that's where the attention is at the moment.
