I wish Sophie became once a day the new queen of England.
She is such a beautiful women, and stylish, so much more dan Camilla.
She has influence, I think.

Here's a gallery with the pics from today without watermarks

Countess of Wessex Presents Gifts to Disadvantaged Hackney Children

I like how she jokes with the kids and listens to them with
real interest, and the following pic of her, is a really nice
portrait

Those are excellent pictures! The Countess looks lovely -- her hair is really becoming in that style.

Grey certainly appears to be one of Sophie's favourite colours

I am under the impression that Louise has a 'wandering eye' (like little Dannilyn Birkhead) easily correctable with surgery around age 2. Is there anything more?

The Earl and Countess of Wessex attended the Queen's traditional Christmas Party today. The Countess of Wessex drove from Windsor with James, Louise and a nanny to Buckingham Palace. Two hours later Sophie drove herself and the kids out, minutes later Prince Edward and a bodyguard drove out with the luggage and Christmas presents.
I presume that they are enroute to Windsor or Bagshot to begin preparations to go up to Norfolk.

I was thinking as I looked at those photos that any other woman would look frumpy in that dress. It looks great on Sophie, though.

I really like the first pic. It's wonderful to see Edward and Sophie still so happy together after 9 year's marriage.

Pic 2 is Sophie with her nephew, Oliver Rhys-Jones. It is nive that the Ryhs-Jones are often invited to small events by the Wessexs.

That's a beautiful picture, but it would be so nice to see their little family too.

The fact that they didn't include the children in the Christmas card tells me that we will have to get used to the idea that these are two grandchildren of the Queen that we will rarely see at all.
I know we don't see them all that much now - maybe once a year, but I think that is all that we can hope for.
I hope that Louise is seen at Christmas but I wouldn't be surprised if she is taken to church through a back entrance so that she isn't on public display.

I think that they are just a little to silly about not letting the public see the children. I don't think that they have to show pictures all the time but I am starting to think that something is really wrong with them or maybe the children.

I can understand their desire for a private life but it would be lovely to see Lady Louise at Christmas with the rest of her family. Surely going in and out of back doors only serves to make her feel different instead of normal. Her cousins and other family all walk down together but she can't?
