She's really and geniunely happy and it's just shining out of her like a beacon.

It's lovely to see.
Thank you Tiggersk8, those are my thoughts exactly and very nicely put, too. She seems more comfortable in her public role and happier all around!

Well said, Tiggersk8! Sophie must be feeling very comfortable in her new role and why not? I for one appreciate the fact that she enjoys her life and duties (and hasn't become anorexic instead )!

Iceflower, the Flower Show was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!!!!! Thanks for the thought, too!!! Hey, no Countess/Duchess there, though. She's got other duties as well, so I guess she couldn't spend the whole week there. Her recent pics are lovely as always. This Ascot outfit is very elegant - I'm glad she decided to recycle it so soon!

This sounds like an advertisment for a Chef.
Now if Kate were to take the job, it would set of a load of rumours about how she got the job, how she's weaving her way into the family etc.
Now I would pay to see Princess Pushy in a pair of marigolds chopping an onion. For her seniors.

The Countess of Wessex, in her role as Colonel-in-Chief of Queen Alexandra's
Royal Army Nursing Corps, has presented campaign medals to 60 members
of 205 (Scottish) Field Hospital (Volunteers) in recognition of a four-month
tour of Afghanistan early in 2010 and met members of their families at Cameron
Barracks in Inverness, August 31, 2010.

Thanks for the links Iceflower.

Is there a different link to the first picture? It's only showing about a quarter of the picture and all I'm seeing are the back two rows of the 205.

Thanks in advance!! :flower:
