I hate that the news media still refers to her as Sophie Rhys-Jones (same goes for Camilla P-B). How long do you have to be married before the media calls you the name you prefer to be called?

Great to see the children, finally! They are so adorable. I've always seen the resemblance to QEII that Louise has, but looking at these pictures, the first thing I thought of was that she looks like Prince Harry at that age! James somewhat does too. The Windsor genes are strong!

Pics 22.5.2009

Great to see the couple again, I wish we would see much more
of their engagements...As you can see in the latest pics, Sophie
is always doing such a great job. Thanks for yesterday's links, giov!


Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex visits Royal Air Force (RAF)
Waddington on May 22, 2009 in Lincoln, England. The visit is his
first in his capacity as the new Honorary Air Commodore to RAF
Waddington and will provide him with an understanding of the
role of RAF Waddington and an opportunity to meet selected
personnel.

Something that just occurred to me was that James looks like Sophie's brother David. When Edward and Sophie were married I bought a magazine commemorating their wedding (I don't know which magazine anymore or where it is!), but I remember there was a photo of Sophie and her brother as children.

I've created a new thread for the Earl and Countess's trip to Canada, which can be found here. Further posts about the trip should go in that thread. Makes it easier for the blog and hopefully more interesting for the forum.

Does anybody think Lady Louise will be at the Trooping of the Colors?

The older she gets the more the media will pay attention to her, and Prince Edward can't keep her hidden away forever.

I don't think the media will pay attention to her at all, particularly as she moves further away from the throne.

Since her birth she has already dropped one place in the line of succession just by having a baby brother born.

As William, Harry, Beatrice and Eugenie have girl/boy friends, marry and have more children she will reach adulthood quite some distance from the throne.

This is why I think Edward and Sophie have taken the approach they have - they know that the press won't be all that interested in her when she will be neice and cousin of the King rather than grandchild. By the time she is 18 she may very well be down to 16th or lower in the line of succession - that has Charles as king with each of William, Harry, Beatrice and Eugenie with two children and that isn't outside the realms of possibility in the next 13 years.

She will be as much interest to the press as the Gloucesters and Kents today.

Lady Louise appeared on the balcony at the Trooping of Colours 2009. She looked happy and healthy up there. I hope she starts to appear more in public now.

It is nice to see Lady Louise on occasion. She's an attractive little girl so it's a pleasure to see her at special times. (But I hope she's left to enjoy her childhood by the press.)

Hopefully this will put paid to all the speculation, (especially on here), that there is something wrong with Louise and that is why her parents have hidden her away!

Well, I guess that growing Louise will look like more to her mother than to her aunt Anne...

I was browsing the Trooping the Colour pictures on Getty Images and found this one of Harry talking to Louise. I think it's adorable and I haven't seen it posted anywhere else.

It's nice to see Louise as part of the family--about time. I'm all for her having a "normal" childhood and not much press notice, but a few pictures each year are nice. It was fun to see the pictures of the Wessex family out at a horse show several weeks back, too. Does anyone know if Louise goes to school or if she is taught at home?

She will also visit the Isle of Wight in July.

Pics 19.6.2009

Sophie, Countess of Wessex and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex
pose for a photograph following a visit to Whitton School on June
19, 2009 in Whitton, England. Today is the tenth Anniversary of
The Countess and Earl's marriage.

Sophie looked fantastic in my eyes, and the couple pics with
the flowers are really nice

It´s very nice to see little Lady Louise present at the Trooping the Colours ceremony. She is a lovely child and why hide her away, as some very wisely said here,the press will not be all over her. It´s natural and normal that as a grandchild of the Queen she´d appear in the balcony.
