Lovely article from the Telegraph about Sophie. They are singing the Wessex's praises recently and I quite like it. It is great for their publicity and helps people realise the hard work they both do and they aren't just "scrounging off the country". I think it is lovely that they always highlight Sophie's relationship with the Queen and how she gets on particularly well with her mother-in-law. I often wonder what Sophie calls her in private. Elizabeth?

Lovely photos of Sophie at Hampton Court, I do like her dress but I am not a fan of her shoes. Her hair looks lovely too.

Nice pics of Sophie at the flower show. The back of her coat is quite interesting...

The video of Sophie with the children is so cute, I love her playing with the dolls and making them dance. Adorable.

We'll fight them on the benches! Couple win an apology from Prince Edward after they are turfed out of seat for the PM | Mail Online

Quote:
After arriving early to bag themselves a prime spot to view the Armed Forces Day celebrations, Peter and Margaret Cox had no intention of moving anywhere.
Not even for the Prime Minister.
So when they were ordered by officials to move off their bench, which had an uninterrupted sea view of an imminent ‘steam-past’ by HMS Argyll involving their grandson, the pensioners were more than ready to put up a fight.

Thank you for the article Lumutqueen. Very nice of Prince Edward to do that.

The more I read about this couple the more and more impressed I am with both Edward and Sophie. They are a real asset to the family - they just put their heads down and get on with their duties without any fuss.

Does England have year-round school? I'm surprised there are children at primary school in July as I thought the UK ran on a traditional calendar.

Thank you for all the links to articles and images. The images from Aspects Photography of Edward and Sophie are beautiful, particularly the first black and white image. The dress looks lovely on Sophie, she looked beautiful.

Another article with images, this time from Edward and Sophie's visit to Rotherfield in Sussex on 4th July 2012. Quite an amusing quote from Sophie, ever the joker.

"
There was a light-hearted moment when the Countess compared sitting down for a few minutes at each table with speed dating.
She asked her husband if he had received any offers yet and said he had more chance than she did."

I wish there was a video of that.

Streets are full for Sophie and Edward

When I was in England in 2008 I had a chance to tour the Royal Pavilion. What a fantastic piece of English history! I do 18th century reenacting and it wasn't hard for me to imagine how wonderful the Pavilion must have looked in it's prime. A fantastic location for a party.

Bertie, I may be mistaken, but it looks like the large stone necklace she wore to the fashion show a few weeks ago. I believe some posters thought it might be peridot.

Maybe someone could enlarge the photo for us to make sure!
