The Earl of Wessex comes over every year or so because of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards; and, as for Prince Andrew in the far north--this is the best time of year to do it.

In the article it said: interestingly, Sophie was the first royal girlfriend to be more or less permanently resident at Buckingham Palace for years before her marriage.

What does this mean? Were Edward and Sophie living together in an apartment in Buckingham Palace before being married? Just curious.

Another favorite royal couple - I have always felt there is something special about them. Would love to meet them.

I think that Sophie had her own apartment, although she spent time at the palace and was photographed leaving there in the morning. She said in her pre-wedding interview that they hadn't lived together. I recall reading before their engagement that she was able to come and go at BP and perhaps Windsor Castle.

Well, we all assume there was nookie going on, right? I'm impressed.

They're lovely, aren't they? I think, if it ever happens (which I hope it wont), the day they announce their seperation i'll be in mourning with them! They probably have one of the most stable marriages within the Royal Family at present, just a couple who love each other very much and are happy together.

Really? You doubt that? They were together for 5 years before they got married, and they're human beings who loved each other...I highly doubt there wasn't any nookie going on, and would be exceptionally shocked if they had abstained for 5 years, rules or not. We could, however, be very wrong.

In the following article it states that Sophie did not sleep with Edward out of "deference to the Queen".... "According to one omniscient royal-watcher, Rhys-Jones did not actually sleep with Edward out of deference to the Queen, and Edward once put his foot in it by tripping over his mother's corgis on a clandestine night-time mission to his lover's room."

Link.

Well whatever they did in preparing for marriage, they certainly did it the right way. This has definitely been the most successful marriage of all HM's children. Prince Edward is the only one who has never divorced. I really do think this couple are lovely together and certainly "good" publicity for the royal family. They are also well loved ambassadors and do portray stable family values.

All posts regarding Edward and Sophie's appearance at any of Zara Phillips wedding events should be in the appropriate wedding threads.

The mods gave a little leeway with William and Kate wedding because it was so big in terms of size and guests, and it was easy for the Wessexes to get lost in the threads but let's keep everything in the appropriate threads.

Thanks!

There is an article about Sophie in this week's Hello magazine. This weeks issue is about Royal Wives, and they have articles on Lady Freddie Windsor, Sophie, Catherine and Princess Letizia. They are complimenting Sophie's change in fashion, along with mentioning she is close to the Queen etc. I don't have a scanner so I can't post the article, but I am guessing it will appear on the Hello website? No?

The article in the magazine is longer, but I am glad she made it to the website! I still love that dress she wore to Easter this year. I love everything in navy blue; I think it's a colour that suits so many people.

The article highlights that she was the first middle-class girl to marry into the Royal Family, pointing out that William chose Sophie to help Catherine out. I am not sure if we can believe that, but i'd like to think it was true. The article also mentions the fact that the Queen broke tradition to visit Sophie in hospital after Louise was born, illustrating their closeness. It also illustrates their closeness by the fact that Sophie is the only member of the family who rise with the Queen in the car at Christmas and often Easter, as well as for other Church services at Sandringham. I wonder if this will change now Catherine is in the family. We shall have to wait until this Christmas to see.

I think Sophie will still ride with the Queen
Catherine is still new in the family and it not to close with the Queen
