Due to Edward and Sophie choosing to keep him out of the public eye, like they have done with Lady Louise, up until now. And because James is onlt 3 1/2, he's still quite young. Edward and Sophie do not want their childre to be raised in the "lime-light", so to speak, which so far they have achieved. I am sure we'll see James as he grows older. He's a cute little boy though!

If anything Sophie, you're much thinner and in better shape than your neice!

I think that is The Mail trying to stir up controversy. Sophie may well want to get in shape but it probably has nothing to do with Kate. It seems there are always these "close friends" who make statements like that .... more likely someone at the Mail standing around the coffee or teapot.

Exactly. True friends know not to say anything.

Andrew Gorman was the photographer at the Royal Bath and West Show 2011 and he has updated his website with several images of the Countess of Wessex over the few days.

Here
He also provided a link to a gallery with MANY images of the show, including a large number of Sophie. Gallery.

I like the red jacket and white dress ensemble.

Thanks iceflower for these links. The final 3 images of Edward make him look kinda handsome. Is it odd of me to say that?

Not odd at all . The Wessexes have always been favorite royals of mine . Sophie and I are from very similar backgrounds and ages, I have always taken an interest in them. The Mail said Sophie was not ready to become a "middle-aged Royal " , good , because I'm not ready to become middle-aged yet either ! !

In the meantime the mentioned visit to the USA has started:

Yesterday, June 20, the Earl of Wessex arrived in the USA, had a meeting with Mr. Arne Duncan (Secretary of
State for Education) and attended a reception at Capitol Hill. Today, he visited the Living Classroom Foundation
in Baltimore, all connected with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award-Young Americans' Challenge.

Thanks iceflower for the image links. Prince Edward looks really happy to be there!

I often wonder when members of the Royal family go on foreign engagements, do they contact their spouses/children when they're away? I suppose Charles wouldn't contact his children, but I imagine he speaks to Camilla. The same for Edward and Sophie. I would find it odd not speaking to my spouse (if I were married, haha) when they were in a foreign country.

Woah, that is a very vibrant dress Kirstie! I am pleased to see how much weight she has lost though. Well done, Kirstie!

Thanks for the articles and information. Edward looks like he is enjoying himself. :) I love the way he fiddles with his hands in this circumstances, most likely a habit of his. I notice Prince Andrew does it as well.

Prince Philip still is patron of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards (see this link to the official website), but Prince Edward
takes over a lot of commitments, especially by attending Gold Award ceremonies around the world. One day Prince
Edward will surely be the patron himself..

Yes, she does look nice, however she has done this before, and before, and before.

I heard that Edward and Sophie will be representing the queen/royal family of britian at the Monaco royal wedding. Why does it seem that they are the only one going to other countries royal weddings?
