Sophie's definitely a very attractive woman, and it's nice to see that some younger gentlemen prefer someone that looks classy, mature and sophisticated. Well done, Your Highness .

That both women married into royalty must make for an immediate sympatico - and Sophie is clearly adept with an understanding of PR because of her background. I think its a very fortuitous friendship.

Yesterday, May 28, the Earl of Wessex was in Nottingham. He visited the London Regiment before deploying on
operation at the Reserves Training and Mobilisation Centre Chetwyn Barracks, he visited Blue Bell Hill Primary
School and joined the children's celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee. Later he opened the new Joint Services
Facility at St. Ann's Valley Centre and visited Trebeck Hall and viewed the exhibition "Monarchy - Icons and
Imagery of Royalty".

Pic 1 is great!

I love the third image of him talking to the little girl. How adorable. Great coverage of Edward's trip. He must have been so hot in his suit though.

Can't help but notice he isn't wearing his wedding rings. Odd.

That's my favorite image as well. The little girl is loving every minute of it, I'm thinking.

Thank you so much for the pictures, MagMil!

Wonderful to see Edward and Sophie together.
Sophie looks lovely, although I wish she wore something with a little colour in it.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex visited Tunbridge Wells today.

Tunbridge Wells Jubilee Visit - short video.

A right royal town - article with one image.

Hopefully more images will be made available as there seemed to be a lot of photographers. Shame the video is so short, but it was lovely to see a video. I liked Edward's gesture to help Sophie up the stairs. Very sweet. The video is from ITV, so it made only be available in the UK. Sorry non-Uk residents.

Love Edward engaging the children like that! Lovely gesture to offer his arm to Sophie as well! After all these years of marriage it appears he still thinks of the little things! Lucky Sophie!

And lucky Edward! Sophie is a wonderful mother and has really proven herself to be a valuable asset to the Royal Family.

I really like the body-language in this picture, the way they're literally supporting each other.
