How adorable was Sophie's response to the little girl saying a Princess was coming to the school? Too cute.
Sophie s indeed amazing! That comment was so sweet!

Thank you for the links. I adore Sophie's smile. It's so genuine. Wonderful that she's being recognized.

Thank you very much for all the links! I love Sophie's coat, and her scarf. It looks like the sort of gift kids give to their parents, I love it.

There is also a video of Sophie's visit to Bedford, seen here.

Thank you for the video, Molly . Sophie looked wonderful, and like you, I love the scarf. Wonder if it was a gift from her kiddos. I can never tire watching her interact with children. She's so genuinely interested in what they have to say and it shows.

Sophie's such a lovely lady and I adore how she made that little girl's day. Can't you just see that little one's face after Sophie told her that she was the Princess? :oD A moment that little girl will never forget.

Love the coat and scarf too. The picture that goes along w/the article that tells that story is one of the best of Sophie I've seen. Gorgeous picture of HRH. :o)

Thanks for all the links!!

Sophie appears to genuinely love children and interact so well with them. I am so glad she and Edward managed to have their own children.

A little bit of information has been released about the Wessex's Jubilee tour. The dates for their trip to Montserrat have been released by their government. Link

They arrive and leave by sea? How cool!

I agree completely. These interactions give us little glimpses into how Sophie might interact with her own children. Her and Edward are undoubtedly lovely parents.

Thanks for the image. I wonder what he said. Break a leg?...

More information has been released for Sophie and Edward's tour of the Carribbean. They are going in February/March. I would have thought they would have spread it out throughout the year but I guess not.

I guess not It could have let to misunderstandings among all those European participants who are not
that familiar with certain proverbs..

Here are at least a few quotes from his speech:


** thestar.co.uk: Stunning display at ice ceremony **


The Earl of Wessex has attended a series of events in Northern Ireland yesterday, January 31. In Belfast
he officially opened the Duke of Edinburgh Award's new Regional Office at Forestgrove Business Park and
in Newcastle he presented gold Duke of Ed certificates to participants from the NI Cancer Fund for Children.
He met a number of the awardees and their parents, as well as workers and volunteers involved in the
scheme run at Shimna Valley Village (see the pic).

Thanks for the images, glad to see Edward in my home country! He does so much for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

The Countess of Wessex was in Bracknell today (8.2.12) opening the Royal Berkshire Bracknell Clinic.

Image + Image

More images + Even more images + More images

Article

The last link of images is the same as the second link, but the RexFeatures link, just incase anyone has ability to use Rex images. I do not have that ability.

The Countess of Wessex also attended the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries Livery Dinner at Apothercaries' Hall in London on 6.2.12.

Image

Below is an article by a man who I think met her at the dinner, who also took the photograph above. He is singing Sophie's praises, thankfully!

When Giovanni met Sophie

The Earl of Wessex has been out and about too, most recently he visited Nickolodian Land in Blackpool, in what was quite an awkward photocall!

Edward and his buddies

Prince Edward enjoys two days in Lancashire with SpongeBob Squarepants

It makes me wish he had brought his children, then it would've been cute...

This photocall has led to the Mirror posting an article about the most awkward photos from the Royal Family's engagements. My favourite is without a doubt the one with Camilla and the horse.

Royally embarrassing! The Family's most uncomfortable photo opportunities

Molly, thank you for the pictures and the article from 'The Mirror'. The pictures from the latter were a riot . The one of Edward with the kids' shows characters looks more like a nightmare. Poor soul.

The pictures of Sophie and the kids are as always, delightful to look at. Everyone's smiling (though the little girl in the grey dress and white shirt looked a little taken aback).

Thank you very very much,Molly for the pictures and articles

It's always a pleasure to see more of Wessexs
Sophie looks very lovely on dinner's photos; that was the dress , if I'm not wrong, from Albert and Charlene's wedding ; I also must say once again she always look comfortable and beautiful around children
Edward's reaction is hilarious .He maybe is thinking : "Why the hell am I here? They should ask my children to go on this event!!!"

I suppose that Lady Louise is in school, and James would be a little young for a public appearance.
