Pics 31.10.2007

Sophie, the Countess of Wessex carrying out her final engagement
before the birth of her second child, attending The Farmers Weekly
Awards at Grosvenor House, London, 31/10/2007

I think we'll miss these pics of a happy and pregnant Sophie
during the next weeks..

Only a few weeks left, but I'm sure they all feel like years in the third trimester.

I think she looks great, so much better and healthier then when she was pregs with Lady Louise. I just hope they have an easier time then she did with Louise. She really looks radiant and happy

Is that a new necklace she is wearing...perhaps borrowed from the vaults of BP?

I think someone mentioned on this forum before...but does anyone else think it is possible that she is expecting twins? It could simply be the style of clothes she is wearing, but she looks larger than she did with Louise.

I agree with many other posters that she looks absolutely radient!

Yes, have to agree she does look as if she is bigger this time round than when she was pregnant with Lady Louise. She looks happy and healthy.

Yes, she looks bigger than in her first pregnancy. Maybe twins? Or maybe the baby has a different position in her belly?

I would really love it to be twins but I doubt it as she would be a lot bigger.
You are normally bigger with your second birth, especially if the first was the C-section. Remember Louise was not only premature she was also underweight. SO I intend holding thumbs, fingers and knocking whatever wooden thing I can find that this goes off by the book and like clockwork.
I'm hoping Sophie can still go to the Queen and Duke's Anniversary. Photos won't be the same without her. missed them terribly at the banquet on Tuesday.

YEah true, Claire, the couple did not have any scheduled engagements on Tuesday evening but i think Sophie may not want to spend the night sitting there, would cause her tired in last stages of pregnancy and also may not want to let Louise by herself. But well, still, i hope she could attend the Service of Celebrations for the Queen and Prince Philip's Diamond Wedding, it's a great milestone and it'not be great without Sophie!

I actually think it had more to do with the customs of the Saudi's. It is not the place of a pregnant woman
to be in public. Edward's attendance would have stuffed up the sitting.

Yes, it's also not a woman's place to drive, vote or travel without their husband or have any type of decent education either in Saudi Arabia. It is her place to be silent and covered completely from head to toe in the abaya and breed as many children as possible, preferably male. Cant say I'll be going there any time soon.

Countess of Wessex, Sophie is pregnant with another daughter, so I believe. A suitable name for her second daughter would be nice if she named her Regina!

lLet's also not forget that to a Saudi, a woman is not allowed to have her face seen except by her husband or her family. They regard seeing a woman's face as the same as seeing her naked. Hmmmm...another reason not to have them, QEII's 'naked' face.

When is the baby due, in December or January I can't remember? If it's supposed to be a December baby, we might expect sometime in November, depending on what part of December its due in. I hope she has an easier time with this pregnancy than she did with Louise.
