Thank you for the pictures, iceflower . I love the patriotic hand bag, and the second picture with the little girl.

The first link had me in hysterics, the 2nd was so beautiful I am lost for words!
And can I just say, Sophie opens a fire station, visits a health clinic, and a school, all in one day, and gives them all her time, without rushing! That is one busy, ( and special!) lady!

I'm in full agreement about Sophie. She has no problem sharing herself, like some other people we know .

Here's a flickr picture of Edward, meeting with people involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Funny you should mention it Daria, but when I saw the above image, I thought of the exact same person!

I wish I knew who you were referring to...haha.

Thanks for the link to more images, Sophie is so charming to watch. I love her bag. I often wonder what they carry in them....

A bit of a late update but Sophie received her own personal music show on her birthday at Bagshot Park 20.1.2012. Members of the Corps of Army Music visited Bagshot Park. Did anyone else notice the freaky monkey at the door in the 3rd photo? It made me jump.

The Countess of Wessex has been in Paderborn, Germany, yesterday, March 15, to visit the
soldiers and their families from 20 Brigade. Only one bad picture so far:

Thank you, iceflower!

It must have been very uplifting for the British soldiers currently on service in Germany to get a royal visit.
The Fifth Battalion, or 5 Rifles, is currently the only battalion of The Rifles regiment abroad. Sophie is not Colonel-in-chief of the 5 Rifles, as is erroneously stated in the article; rather, she is Royal Colonel - and a very dedicated one too! The Colonel-in-chief of The Rifles (all battalions) is The Duke of Edinburgh.

Sophie looks beautiful; I like the combination of polka dots and solids. She has worn the same dress (sans the jacket) during the recent visit to the Caribbean.

Lovely video of Sophie, especially the clips of her with the children. I found it amusing when the newsreader was standing by the table and Sophie was chatting to the children and the newsreader was speaking, they all turned around when she started saying, "Her Royal Highness" yet Sophie remained oblivious. Not sure why that amused me. I guess you get used to it.

I can't get over how long her hair is, and I was beginnig to wonder what would happen if she dyed it brown. Wonder what reception it would receive. I don't think she would suit dark hair colours, but I would love to see it. Her natural hair colour looks quite light, as her eyebrows are light, but I don't think she is as blonde as Lady Louise is. Not everyone can pull blonde off, but Sophie always has.

On March 21, the Countess of Wessex opened the South Petherton Community Hospital and visited
Seavington Village Store and Café in Somerset.
As Vice Patron of the Royal Bath and West of England Society she also attended the Barbers of Ditcheat
Business Day at Ditcheat Village Hall and visited the "Back on Track Scheme" at the Conquest Centre,
Taunton as well as the AJ and RG Barber Limited Cheese Factory, Maryland Farm, Ditcheat.

A really full programme for the day!

The facial expression in the first picture is priceless . I'd love to know what was going on there. She looks gorgeous.
