Most all of her charity work that I am aware of is charities dealing with the special needs population! She is a natural, nice to see a member of the BRF so dedicated to the cause...!

Thank you, . I had thought they were "assistants" of some sort, but wasn't 100% sure. Thanks for clearing that up.

They are lovely and I think she has always come across as a caring person, particularly toward children etc. It's lovely to see and obviously her personality.

I found this in one royal artical
definition for :
Lady-in-waiting-usually of noble birth, act as personal assistant of the female royals

Thanks for this. Are private secretaries and Ladies-in-waiting quite similar?

I couldn't agree more! She definitely appears to have the touch for the job.

I think a Private Secretary would be similar to a Chief of Staff for the President of the United States.

Thanks for these. I agree with RoseRoyal, Sophie's dress and smile are beautiful.

Here's a video of Sophie at the Brainwave chairty centre in Essex. The moment at the end is adorable. Sophie appears so at ease with children.

Love the video! Sophie would make a great special education teacher. It would be wonderful to observe her interactions in person.

I have had the exact thought Daria, I think Sophie would be a fabulous special ed teacher! Pity she cannot be... but good on her that she uses her role to help/ support the progress of special children, and their families. And she can highlight the work of special ed teachers, and disability charities which must be a help to them.

It would seem that the role of representing the Queen at foreign weddings has fallen to Edward and Sophie. I often thought it was because they were the next married couple in line; but now that William and Catherine aren't going, as they would be thenext married couple in line, I now think perhaps Edward and Sophie enjoy going...
