Looking forward to the Christmas Day walk to church at Sandringham:) Wonder if we'll see James and Louise this year? Here's a fun summary of Sophie's Christmas Day outfits to date...The Walk to Church at Sandringham on Christmas Day ~ The Countess of Wessex Part One « The Royal Post

I imagine we'll see Lady Louise this year as she has been out and about much more this year (the wedding, Royal Windsor Horse Show and Garter Day, all of which Edward and Sophie allowed her to be seen), so I think this year could be Louise's year! I must admit, I was a bit disappointed she wasn't at Zara's wedding, as she was at Peter's, but perhaps she was not invited.

Thanks for the link, I forget Sophie's been around at Christmas for over a decade. Her first Christmas must have been fun though, and I like that Sophie was the first person to wear trousers. Rebel.

The Countess of Wessex was in Wirral to open a hospital, though I don't know if this is recent as the image with the little girl looks really familiar. Perhaps this is just a recently released article about an old visit?

I don't think we have ever seen a Wessex Christmas card so I doubt we're going to this year.

And look at the reaction they got, I imagine them staying well clear of publicising a private family photo.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex have made a quick trip to Bahrain before Christmas this week.

HM King Hamad Receives HRH Prince Edward

It looks like Sophie is wearing her wedding outfit from Zara and Mike's wedding. Nice to see Edward and Sophie just before Christmas. The article, however, incorrectly titled Sophie as Princess Sophie, but we'll let them off as it does suit her!

Is it wrong of me to think it's cute that they are both in army uniform? They look adorable...

Glad I wasn't the only one! It was nice to see them both visit and both wear military uniform in their positions as Colonel-in-Chief's no doub. This visit was kept very secretive and was only announced on the Court Cicular today, althought it was dated that they left on the 18th.

Whilst in Bahrain, Edward and Sophie visited Royal Navy and RFA personnel. Edward is the honourary colonel-in-chief of the RFA personnel.

Picture

Article (with more images).

They both look lovely and the image of Sophie looking through a piece of the equipment is cute.

You're very welcome Mag. I have found some more images of the Wessex duo on their recent engagements in Bahrain in December 2011, via Flickr.

Edward + Edward and Sophie + Sophie

Earl and Countess visit to Bahrain

There are also some more images of Sophie when she attended The St John's Ambulance First Aid Awards on 30.11.2011

Sophie (spotted the camera me thinks!) + Sophie 2 + The Two Sophie's

Sophie's hair looked so great at these awards, it's so shiny considering it has be dyed so many times over the years. I want her shampoo!

Thanks to one and all for the links to the articles and pictures of the Wessexes, literal, flying visits to the Troops over the Holiday period. That one picture of the two of them where Edward is signing the Visitor's Book is one of the most gorgeous pictures of the two of them I think I've ever seen.
