Exactly my opinion.

Besides, time to move on ...

Indeed she was, but it would have been a little difficult to disprove the bite marks on the children, the hospital visit and the parents apparent insistence that she be prosecuted.

Whether he contacted with the dog or not, it is a very unsavoury episode, both for Edward and the RSPCA, IMO. As none of us are likely to agree, it is yesterdays news.

Pics 13.1.2009

Sophie, Countess of Wessex visiting the new floating support service
at Wokingham Town Hall, Berkshire, Britain - 13 Jan 2009 . As part of
her role as the patron of Surrey Community Development Trust (SCDT),
Sophie visited Wokingham today to see the organisation's new floating
support service in action. SCDT helps homeless and vulnerable people
by giving them a home in SCDT run properties and helping to rebuild
their lives.

When I saw the description of the organization and its "floating support service", I thought there'd be a boat! Nice to see Sophie wearing this pretty navy suit again.

I think the Countess looks very elegant. I adore the picture of HRH gently pushing her hair away from her face...

Fully agree, Sophie did look lovely. Its great to see her out and about, and driving herself as well.

Some news about Edward and Sophie

Edward's office did have a planned trip to Canada this month but that is now gone. Sophie and Edward are to make a trip to Canada in June.
Edward is making a stopover trip to the West Indies and Sophie will be visiting her regiment in Germany again later this month.

Hopefully it's my part of the country! Sophie in Prince Edward Island not very long after they were married, but they've been in Ontario and West Canada since then.

So far we only know that they will be in Vancouver. But normally they attempt to visit their regiments and do other stuff as well as they are in the region.

Vancouver? The other end of the country. Princess Anne has a regiment in New Brunswick. Maybe Edward or Sophie will take that on one day.

Does anyone know the new housewessex web address? I also love the navy suit and imagine the fabric is even richer and divinely cut inperson. I think many of her garments would be made to be unassuming but luxurious. I think she is quite lovely in this on too.

News Headline:

I read in the official engagement list that Sophie is the new colonel in chief of the Corps of Army Music. I just wish they would actually announce these things but with the Wessex putting in the engagements is kind of the closest thing you get to the announcement.

And here is some more of Edward's visit to 2nd Battalion Rifles

I'm a little late but ooh Vancouver! I think I'll try and see if I can catch a glimpse of them, if that's possible.
