Very well said, my 4 years old grandson was born with a severe heart defect, that has been corrected with two heart surgeries, but a result of the heart defect there was no muscle in his left eye lid, I guess this is common in his kind of heart defect, but he had one surgery last year but got a MRSA infection, so the eye surgery did not take. He is attending pre-school now and some of the kids make fun of him. My son was very upset, but I told him to get him into activities that he will make his own friends, so when he is in school, he will have some friends who will stick by him and not judge him on looks. I really hope that the media is above any kind of remark about Lady Louise, just accept her for the beautiful little girl she is, not her birth position or her physical difference. I have only seen a few pictures of her, but from what I can see, she is a beautiful little girl, looks a lot like her Aunt and Grandmother. I do think it is time she is exposed a little more to the public since she will be followed as she gets older. Not as much as her older cousins but at least some, look at Zara and Peter, people are just curious.

Exactly guys! There is no reason why Louise cannot handle the wedding, and I agree that it will likely bring more understanding and awareness of her issue. She does not need to be hidden away at all.

There were two pictures published when he was Christened and that was all. With Louise I think there were also only a couple issued when she was Baptised.

There were a few released of Louise when she about 2 months old - a couple of pictures of her with her parents and one with all of them and the Queen. Prince Andrew took the pictures, I think when they were at Sandringham that Christmas.

Peter and Zara were the Queen's first two grandchildren. Louise will spend most of her life as the monarch's neice or cousin. Soon there will be children much closer to the throne than Louise and so she won't be followed. She will be more like Princess Margaret's children - able to have a normal life on the fringes of the royal family. By allowing her to grow up without that attention she will have an even greater chance of getting a real job and living a normal life away from the public glare - as Peter does now. Zara doesn't because of her equestrian career but when she gives that away she won't be in the public eye much as she will need to work at something else.

I've never seen them before either. I'm guessing that's Louise in the second one and James in the first?

I do know that James was the first Royal baby to be christened in the new Christening Gown. The original was becoming so fragile a new one was needed. I understand it's an exact replcia though.

That's correct

Today, March 8, the Countess of Wessex as patron offically opened Surrey

The Earl of Wessex was appointed GCVO today on the occasion of his 47th birthday.
The Duke of York had the honour in February.
Both brothers are KG as well. I really wonder when they will wear their accessoires of the Grand Cross as the KG is of higher ranking. I think on uniforms and so, they are likely to wear the Garter.

Such a pretty navy suit! One thing I like about Sophie is that she wears things that any woman could wear.

There is just not enough coverage of Sophie it really annoys me. She is really terrific IMO and though I enough all the posts the photos are really not that great and well I do get a little disappointed in it.

I agree I would love to see more coverage of Sophie. She is a real asset to the BRF.
