Here is a link to several pictures of Sophie's visit to Merlin Centre in Hewas Water and Mevagissy on 17th May 2011.

click here.

Just select either of the two categories regarding the Countess and it will lead you to a gallery of images. I love the dress and jacket.

Did anyone see the images on Zimbio of Sophie looking at the Royal collection with Charles, Camilla and Andrew? She was wearing that beautiful navy dress she wore to Easter again. I really loved it.

Thanks for these. The video is lovely and it shows Sophie's sense of humour, particularly regarding the staff's sky dive and the mention of her handbag being the one she used at the Royal wedding, just for the little boy who presented her flower's interest in the wedding. Really cute.

This is an old favourite dress of hers, no? I am sure we've seen it a few times. I am ok with that though as I think it's a beautiful dress AND I love her shoes.

That really was a great piece of video. Thanks for it and the pictures. Sophie looked to be really enjoying herself.

And I also hope that someday, The Trust does go out of business and Sophie loses a Patronage. Meningitis is an awful, awful thing.

I hadn't spotted him until you pointed him out. They're back on good terms, ha.

I agree with everyone; I think Sophie looks very pretty in this dress. I liked it last year but think she looks much better in it this year, and I love the bag.

Here are some images of Sophie visiting patients of Great Ormond Street Hospital on 25.5.11. I love the dress she is wearing. Am I right in thinking it's the Easter service dress? The images of Sophie with the patients are lovely.

One & two.

Gallery = Belga.

There is also an article to go with it. HERE.

I'm getting the picture that Sophie does a lot of work with the special needs population. Would that be the correct assumption?

Lady in Waiting

I see the Court Circular had this yesterday:
"The Countess of Wessex has been pleased to appoint Mrs. Amy Mayes to be a Lady in Waiting to Her Royal Highness with effect from 1st June, 2011."

Has Sophie ever had an officially announced lady-in-waiting before? Anyone know anything about Mrs Amy Mayes?

yes, before she appointed sarah sienesi, an old friend of hers in the end of 2009, i think. that was when people began speculating whether sienesi was hired to help william and catherine in her profession as a wedding consultant. i wonder what happened to sienesi now- would sophie need two ladies in waiting?

This may sound like an obvious question, but what exactly do Ladies-in-waiting do? I know Sophie did not hire one until 2009, so why did she need one then and not before?

Ladies-in-Waiting are unpaid assistants who accompany the royal lady and end up with the bouquets etc. They also help with the correspondence e.g. if you get a letter from Sophie it might start with 'HRH The Countess of Wessex has asked me to write to you to thank you for your birthday wishes...' That will be signed then by a L-i-W.

You can just tell she is a caring person, and a loving Mummy!
