Some more images are available of Edward and Sophie in Canada. This time there are images of their visit to Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, where they were presented with little birch canoes for Louise and James.

Royal visit

It would seem that Edward and Sophie are having another little trip abroad this year. (Of course it's not a trip, it's official duties!)

Thank you for the pictures and the heads-up about the visit to Malta next month. As usual, looking forward to seeing this couple in action.

The Countess of Wessex opened accommodation for families whose babies are being cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at St Michael's Hospital. Quite an apt choice for Sophie to go as she could relate to the families. I wonder if the hospital write to the Palace and then they choose who would be appropriate to attend the engagement. Is that how it works?

I am really liking Sophie's longer hair, particularly as her ponytail is so cute!

It does not appear to the black and white dress with the white panelling down the side as in the other images it looks all white. I have to say, I am not a fan of the jacket. I prefer blazer's personally. Her longer hair looks thicker than it was. Sophie always looked like she has quite fine hair, but her pony tail looks quite thick. Perhaps it is not all her hair...?

Lovely to see Sophie as the president of the NSPCC, and it is lovely to see Sophie taking another of Princess Margaret's previous Patronages. Sophie took up quite a number of Margaret's charties, the most famous being the Girl Guiding post.

It's my understanding that an organization can ask for a specific member of the Royal Family. If that person isn't available or thinks that the engagement would fit better within another person's realm of interests, another member could be sent instead depending on availability. Ultimately, though, they're all representing the Queen.

I love the pictures! Sophie chooses great patron ages, and the people are lucky to have her.

Prince Edward and his lovely wife Sophie are my very favourites in the Royal Family.
Their children are gorgeous , natural and enchanting and the couple seems to be in tune.
As for Sophie, she is indeed a beautiful woman, charming and with such a radiant smile she is definitively a plus for the Royal Family.
