^ Thanks for the link, Marika86! I didn't realize she was on duty when she commented on William's engagement. She looked lovely in that cream coat!

Isn't it a pity, that her engagement was only covered as the press was
trying to find as many members of the royal family on that special day..?!

This article also has some (very small) pics of yesterday's event:

** HRH Sophie, Countess of Wessex visits Nottingham **

And here are some other recent events, Sophie attended:


On November 11, the Countess of Wessex as patron of the Sir Oswald Stoll
Foundation re-dedicated the Memorial at the Chiswick War Memorial Homes,
Chiswick, London:

** HRH Countess of Wessex cuts ribbon on redevelopment **

** Countess of Wessex opens serviceman home **

On November 15, the Countess of Wessex represented the royal family at
the funeral of Irish antiques dealer Ned Ryan:

** Irish antiques dealer was friend of royals **

Sophie is doing so much in one week, quite a busy schedule, as it seems. And Iceflower you're right, the journalists on Tuesday were just trying to get a statement from her... This is how we found out that Sophie was actually working that morning.

Quote:
William's aunt the Countess of Wessex has reportedly volunteered to be Kate’s personal mentor in the stressful run-up to the royal wedding.
The prince is said to have asked Sophie, the wife of Prince Edward, ahead of the engagement whether Kate could visit her Surrey home Bagshot Park for an informal chat.
Sophie, a 45-year-old former PR guru and firm favourite of the Queen, will help Kate to avoid some of the pitfalls she suffered...

^ I was hoping for that. Sophie can be the best role-model in this regard. Thanks for the link!

Happy to hear Sophie will be giving Kate advice, I always thought Sophie was the best person to help Kate out and was hoping they'd ask her!

Edward and Sophie make a very good team - I'm sure they too enjoy working together. I liked the new photos, thanks!

She does look great, and I think the longer hair is very flattering on her.

She looks terrific! That shade of winter white is beautiful on her, as well.

Sophie had the courage to carry on with her duties despite the snowy weather, which is great. She looked lovely in white.

Finally some pics of her trip to Paderborn, I had already been disappointed
about the German press that didn't pay attention to that visit.

The date given - December 14 - is not correct, it's been last week, December
9. I was only able to make a screenshot of a concert Sophie attended.
A group of children sang Christmas carols at a church.


** Sophie, December 9 **
