Found some more images of the engagement.

Royal Visit to Beacon

The photographer captured some lovely shots of Sophie, she is very photogenic. I particularly love the show in black and white of Sophie praying. (At least it looks like she is...)
These are lovely. Thank you for sharing. Sophie looks very genuine in the shots.

Really nice pics

Sophie has been looking amazing lately

I like what she is wearing but why is her red flower (sorry, don't know if it has a specific name) so small. I wonder why she didn't use the ordinary one...

The red flower with black dot in the middle is poppy flower and are worn in honor of the veterans of the various wars (both world wars and other wars). They're worn from late Oct until mid-Nov (Remembrance Day on Sunday, 11/13).

It appears that Sophie wasn't wearing an actual poppy but an enamel poppy pin. That's why it seemed so small.

I concur with everyone's opinion of Sophie looking great lately. I much prefer her hair that little bit longer, it's lovely. She has aged so well. Look forward to seeing her at the Rembrance Service. I wonder if she and Edward are attending the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. Is a guest list ever available? They normally go every year, except for 2003 and 2007 when Sophie was pregnant.

Thanks for the images, Sophie looked lovely with her hair up again. It's becoming a trend for Sophie. Lovely image of Sophie hugging the little boy, she always gets so up close and personal with them. She appears to be so lovely and genuine on her engagements, especially mentioning she has a daugther in Year 3, finding a connection with the children. I wish there were more videos of her visits, to see her interact with the children.

I really like her grey dress beneath her coat too.

These images were lovely. Sophie does have quite a compassionate side to her especially when she was hugging the little boy. What a treat for these children. She looks really lovely here. I see Sophie likes to wear her hair up these days and it does and an air of elegance to her look. I do love the cream trench coat style jacket she is wearing. HM can certainly be very proud of this daughter-in-law.

I thought she looked rather frumpy; her hair looked messy rather than polished.
I've seen her looking much better than she does here.

Sophie appears to have connection with people in general, though her special touch definitely shines more with children and those who have special needs. She never fails to say things that will lift the spirits of others, and find something to help her relate just a little bit more.

James I believe has only ever been seen at his Christening, disembarking the ship when they celebrated Anne and Andrew's birthday, riding with his grandmother and the Windsor horse trial. All of which were either family events or private outings.
