When they announce the rest of the tour I'll post it. Hopefully it will included somewhere where you can go.
But if you are in Grand Cayman, Barbados, Jamaica and Nassau you can see Edward next week.

Yes, pic 3 is definitely a "keeper"! It looks like he's shocked to see the photographers!

HRH Countess of Wessex works incredibly hard but isn't it an absolute shame we have to resort to local news sites to find information about all Her engagements?

Personally I find the local journalists and people are more open to the Wessex. The larger syndication are always up about something. They are the ones will political agendas that need to be fulfilled first. The truth is usually nothing but an irritation to a good story.
Personally I think that Edward and Sophie are doing it on purpose they are not sending out press releases to big newspapers anymore they are relying on the charity to inform the local press. Can you imagine any other royals hiring a wedding photographer to take pics of his big engagements, you got to be kidding?

They are not very popular in the UK, hence the lack of main stream coverage.

I don't know why it is, it just is. Most of my staff in the 40-50 age bracket, remember Edwards disasters and Sophie's 'sheik' problem and the apparent use of her royal status to further her business. The younger ones simply don't know who they are. They are rarely to the fore of anything, so lack of coverage = lack of interest = lack of coverage.

Charles is well known whether you agree with him about global warming or not. Anne is know as the hardworking Princess, who is inclined to tell reporters (or anyone else who upsets her, where to go and Andrew is known as someone inclined to waste taxpayers money on trips.

We know Edward is involved with the DoE awards, but people associate that with the Duke himself.

Ahh okidoke?
I suppose your; correct people my age (15-16) know who they are as in can picture them but they cannot put their names to anything i suppose. Like the DofE, the princes trust, the princess royal for her work load.

IT'S a tough job but someone's got to do it and Prince Edward is the man for the task.
While millions of Britons have been battling to get to work in the snow this week, Edward has escaped the big freeze by embarking on a series of royal engagements in the Caribbean

From Belga Picture
Sophie, Countess of Wessex visits the Islamia Eye Hospital in Dhaka on March 23, 2009. The Countess is in the Bangladeshi capital on a visit with development agency Sightsavers International looking at projects funded by Standard Chartered Bank to clear the massive backlog of patients who need cataract operations in the impoverished nation.

Slap and Tickle?
My my i never put Ulrika down for a tell tale.

'Prince Edward and literally said to me, “Come on, we’re going out for an evening at the theatre.” Went to the theatre, and I got out of the car at the same time as him and we ended up alongside each other, and it all happened so quickly.’

Interesting pics! I wonder if that's Lady Louise under the dark blue cap. I see some blondish hair.
