A really full programme for the day!

Lovely images of Sophie, I love her hair up! I know i've said it before, but I am saying it again.

I found a Flickr site with many more images of the visit to South Petherton.

Royal opening for South Petherton Hopsital

The image of Sophie I linked is lovely, but REALLY close up! One thing I am going to say though is I am not a fan of her coat, only because she has obviously trimmed up a lot since she bought the coat so it now looks quite big. But aside from that, Sophie looks beautiful as usual.

Thank you for the lovely photos . Sophie does indeed look beautiful, and I love the elegance the updo is adding to the whole look. However, that would all be completely irrelevant if she didn't have that engaging and genuine smile going on. That's her best feature, and it brings job to so many who meet her.

Sophie just gets prettier and more elegant by day.
She's a brilliant asset for the royal family and easily my favourite member of the royal family after the Queen.

Yes, Sophie is certainly looking very lovely. I enjoy seeing her in action, and like you, feel that she's a great asset to the Windsors.

Thank you for the pictures and the article. Sophie is definitely a wonderful asset to the RF, and I cannot say enough how much I love seeing her with children. She appears to have a good rapport and understanding with them, which most likely makes her a wonderful parent.

One of the cutest and most touching articles on Sophie I've ever read.

Little Ellie Kaye captivates Royal visitor Sophie Countess of Wessex at Castle Hill School: Fantastic pictures
Quote:
Little Ellie Kaye stole the heart of a Royal on a Huddersfield school’s day in the sun. Ellie, nine, met Sophie, Countess of Wessex, on a visit to Castle Hill School yesterday. The Countess, looking stunning in a red pleated dress cut just above the knee, was greeted with brilliant sunshine and big smiles.
The Countess, a mother-of-two, met youngsters, teachers and staff outside the school but it was almost too much for pony-tailed Ellie. The Golcar girl hugged the Countess, wrapping her arms around her neck – then promptly burst into tears.
The Countess bent down to comfort Ellie, who then hugged her again before grasping the Royal’s hand and refusing to let go. The Countess had to give her handbag to an aide as she continued her walkabout hand-in-hand with Ellie.

Afterwards Ellie, who also admired the Royal’s shoes, said: “That lady’s my friend.” Asked what she thought of the Countess she beamed: “She’s cute!”
Loads of wonderful pictures inside the article:
- Sophie looking stunning
- The Countess and little Ellie
- Sophie gets a a hug from Ellie
- Sophie meets other youngsters, while still holding Ellie's hand

Can we just get this woman into a special ed. classroom please? She's so natural with these children; there's no fear or awkwardness and children sense and thrive on it. Ellie will remember this for the rest of her life.

Sophie's so amazingly great with children, one can't help but admiring her, all of those photos are absolutely adorable. She also looked absolutely stunning, I love when she wears her hair up.

What an endearing article and photos; the expression on both their faces in photo 2 is just so precious. This little girl looks like she'd love to go home with Sophie. She really does have a special talent and affinity with children.

That's the best way to describe that picture. Hmmmm...wonder if a play-date can be arranged for the little Ellie and Lady Louise. I bet all parties would be delighted . On a serious note, Sophie definitely has the ability to relate to children and make them feel at ease. It's a gift that is always delightful to observe in action.
