And then I read this in the Daily Mail. Prince Edward and Sophie's equerry is not other then Captain the Viscount Fitz-Harris - the 37-year-old heir to the Earldom of Malmesbury.
No wonder Charles wanted him on his staff.
What is the significance of the Captain/Viscount? Why would Charles want him?

Captain Fitz- Harris is the heir to the Earldom of Malmesbury. I doubt it is his expertise as this is his first time enquerring in the army. I just think that Charles would rather have an earl working for Camilla, William and Harry that have one working for Edward. I suppose it has to do with their rank.

Are we certain that Edward and Sophie managed to go to Norfolk? The weather is really bad and they were apparently going to go by helicopter.

Yes, Edward was the only one in his little family to attend church at Sandringham, but Sophie and the baby was supposed to arrive at Sandringham House yesterday.

I read that Sophie and the babies were also at Sandringham but they did not attend the church service, thus there are no photos of them. I wonder when little Louise will start attending the services. I remember the York girls were around 5 when they were photographed w the rest of the family and little Margarita Linley has been going for a couple of years now.

Murray Harkin is to write a book about the fake Sheik affair. It will be the first time Sophie's former partner tells his side of the story. It doen't seem to be a tell all book, but I would have thought BP would have gagged him.

Since he never worked for the BRF directly, they don't have any confidentiality agreements to hold over him. Anyway, since he was a victim of the sting, I think he is entitled to tell his side of the incident. I wonder why neither Murray Harkin or Sophie sued the News of the World for the malicious incident. It could hardly be called news to have an opinion on public figures, dead or alive.

Thanks a lot for the link with the wonderful new pic of Sophie,
sweetpeaheidi. It's great that she already felt ready to join
the Queen and she looks so happy and full of energy, no
wonder that everybody asked her for news about little James

"Spill the beans" is a phrase meaning talking/giving interviews. So basically, Mr. Harkin was offered money to give his side of the sting back when it happened. At the time, whether due to conscience or loyalty, he turned down the offer. Guess after a few years, he changed his mind. I'm just not sure there is the same amount of interest for his side now.

To spill the beans means to tell someones damaging secrets to a third party.

I have a question...when Edward becomes the Duke of Edinburgh (assuming he does in due course), will Louise & James' titles change? For example, there might be a higher title involved for the son instead of Viscount Severn.
