You are right Thena and though I didn't want to comment here as I could see it going on and on, this is normal well in the parts of India I visited and not just for royalty and so on. It is a job good not good I cannot say but it's what happened in my experience anyway.

^ So, it's a job indeed, just like I had guessed. Thanks for confirming this! I see nothing wrong then and I also agree with the poster who said that P Edward knows better. Besides, he would never insult anyone.

Agreed, seen from this angle, it's acceptable and not as worse as it seemed
from the first observation!

The games are over now, the next ones will take place in Glasgow, Scotland's
biggest city, in 2014.

Prince Edward addresses the XIX Commonwealth Games closing ceremony at
Jawarharlal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi on October 14, 2010.

Iceflower, I thought of the same thing when I first saw the picture. There are professions that appear more 'derogatory' than the others, that's for sure. Pedicurists come to mind, when I think of it. But it's a job, people make a living this or that way. It's just that some people were not that lucky in this regard or they didn't learn to do something that appears more 'decent' or 'respectable'.

It's just not an image that India or Prince Edward needs to have flashed around the world right now

Prince Edward officially opens Pavilion Dance centre in Bournemouth (From Bournemouth Echo)

Hip-hop dancers showed the Earl of Wessex the latest moves as he officially opened a multi-million-pound venue in Bournemouth.

So Edward had a free lesson there - hope he learned the steps well. Thanks for sharing, Wbenson!

This was good too see. It's so nice that these young people have something creative to do. Thank you for posting, wbenson. BTW Prince Edward strikes me as being more self-conscious than his siblings, almost like he doesn't know quite what to do with his hands. Perhaps it's shyness.

Edward attended classes to help him talk in public and to actually stop him from gesturing with his hands. Occasionally notably the more excited he is, he talks too fast and starts gesturing.

I didn't know he had attended such classes. Good for him, though there's nothing wrong in being more natural and even spontaneous, IMO.

I see. That's interesting. So I was noticing some self-consciousness then. Sophie seems much more relaxed in public. I wonder whether that's why Prince William sometimes rushes his words together as well?

Really lovely photo. She is quite an asset to the family, and I'll bet HM appreciates her presence at these events.

We know she does. HM appreciates Sophie in general and we also know that the two women have a rather warm relationship. Sophie looks lovely in this photo. Have we seen this grey dress before? In Ascot perhaps? Does anyone remember?

P Edward is doing a fantastic job, IMO. Thank you for the new photos, Iceflower! I think he looks quite dashing in the second pic!
