Their children have just finished school for summer so I imagine they will now be taking some time out to be with their children, and most likely go on a holiday as they normally do. This will probably be after the olympics (or before).

According to the Court Circular, Edward and Sophie had engagements today:

Quote:
The Earl of Wessex

President, Creative Youth, will attend a performance of 'The Dreaming' at the Rose Theatre, 24-26 High Street, Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey.

The Countess of Wessex

will hold a Charities Forum at Bagshot, Surrey.



The Countess of Wessex

will open the newly rennovated Lightwater Surgery, 39 All Saints Road, Lightwater, Surrey.


A nice little blog about Sophie which I came across today:

The Real Housewives of Windsor: Sophie, Countess of Wessex

Sophie really was the first "middle class" woman to marry a Royal, even more middle class that Catherine or Camilla. Catherine's parents were extremely well off and Camilla's father was a Major in the British army and she herself attending a finishing school in Switzerland. Even Sarah had a much more "posh" upbringing than Sophie. Sophie is the true "middle class" wife, and it goes to show the marriages work better as I think the "commoner" grounds the Royal. Sophie most likely grounded Edward.

All local engagements to home - not more than 10-15 miles round trips - school is definitely out!

English schools only finished for summer On Friday 13th, so I doubt they took Louise out of school to go on holiday. They were maybe relaxing. I hope they go to Scotland, but we never see images of those holidays anymore sadly. There are plenty of when Sophie was not married to Edward and he was teaching her to winds surf etc. Now we do not see any, which is fine as the family deserves privacy.

Thanks for the images iceflower. I love Edward's ties, they are always a bit different.

Tudur Rose, I was not aware that private schools finished earlier. Thank you for that information. :)

Sophie looks sensational in red (or any other strong jewel tones).

Lady Louise and James look absolutely adorable.
Sophie looks like she's really enjoying the game - and certainly more exited than the kids.
