I agree, Noor, Sophie does look lovely in that colour.

If Sophie Wessex is the Queen's favourite, how come we never see her in any of Lilibet's jewels?

Because she hasn't been given any?
Has anyone been given any of the Queens jewels to wear, except Camilla?

I would suggest that the Queen is also conscious of Sophie's position in the family and that giving her too much jewellery would send the wrong message to people about that.

The Queen is the Queen. Pettiness is not a word that belongs to her vocabulary. Reportedly, HM likes Sophie a lot. I suppose this means that she's satisfied with the fact that her son has found a good partner and that their marriage is stable and happy. This doesn't mean that the Queen will act inequitably, offering Sophie more jewels etc. than the others.

^^ He looks so funny in the first photo, thanks! Many of Edward's (and Sophie's) duties are connected to younger people's associations/foundations etc. I was wondering whether Edward chose to be involved in these. Or is it HM the one who decides?

If you watch The Monarchy at Work programme that was on BBC a few years ago, at some point Edward talks about being patrons of various things & how he chooses what he represents or agrees to etc. If I remember rightly he said something along the lines of that charities/events for children, sport & fighting diseases were the most popular things to help with & he quite liked finding areas that perhaps weren't so popular with other members of the family or were more likely to be over-looked etc as he felt he could do more help that way. I always thought that was a good idea by him, helps perhaps the lesser known/less "fashionable" charities & organisations get a bit of a boost.

I love Sophie's coat dress. It really flatters her and she looks really good in grey I've noticed.

Thanks Marika!! :o)

Always so nice to see coverage of Sophie out and about, and video makes it that much better. Thank you for the link.
