Sophie + Sophie 2

I love that she is on the phone, though I wonder who it is to. Her smile is so lovely and genuine.
If I were on the other end of the phone call I would have been thinking I was being pranked. Wonder what went through the head of the person on the other end of that call.

Thanks for the links. What I love most is the photo of Sophie taking a photo of someone/something. She loves that camera! I'd love to see her photo collection on her computer. She literally has photographed just about everything this year. I bet she has lots of photos of Louise and James.

Her hair looks beautiful at the event for WheelPower Charity Gala.

You mean this photo?

I agree she reminds Sophie, but she is wearing a bracelet and a ring, while during speech she didn't have it... Hmm, maybe she got it at that gala?

Bags look like Tiffany,
maybe sth like this bracelet http://www.tiffany.co.uk/Shopping/It...+6-ri+-ni+0-t+
ring: http://www.tiffany.co.uk/Shopping/It...+6-ri+-ni+0-t+

You are right, I don't think it is Sophie. Whoever it is, she has beautiful hair!

Thank you to you both. I love Sophie's dress, it is such a beautiful shape. I hoped we would see it after the Luxembourg wedding and we have.

What bothers me, though it probably shouldn't bother me and it shows I am too invested in the Wessex's, is that Sophie does not wear her wedding rings. It bothered me when Edward did not wear his, and now Sophie isn't wearing hers. She probably fancied a change, but it is odd.

What I do love is the image of Sophie signing the book and she has got Edward to hold her bag. It's a good look, Edward.

Please, can you possibly be TOO invested?

Hm, maybe they got new rings? I mean there must have been a reason why Edward was not wearing his rings for months, maybe he lost or broke his wedding band. Thus maybe they had have made new ones and are now both wearing those?
Cause the ring Sophie's wearing in those pictures really does look more like a wedding band than a fancy fashionable ring that one might be wearing for a change.

I am definitely TOO invested, without a doubt!

They are perhaps new rings, but it was noted by another member that Sophie had worn the ring (or a similar ring) in 2008 on her right hand. I had thought it was an anniversary gift as she has only been wearing on her left hand ring finger since their anniversary, but since it was pointed out she had it in 2008 that idea went out the window.

Of course we will never know where her rings are, and I only say because I adore her engagement ring. If she no longer wants it, I don't mind borrowing it...

The most I am bothered by the total LACK of press coverage of this visit. It's a shame, really!

There has been more coverage of this tour than The Duke of Kent's recent week in the Falklands.

Outside of The Queen, Charles, William and Harry (and spouses) the press really aren't interested in tours or visits by the minor royals.

MagMil I cannot view last 2 links, anyone else has the same problem? It says:
you don't have permission to access /26184/countess-of-wessex-presents-two-ambulances-in-malta/ on this server.
Not sure why...
But Molly you've made my day, what a joy!! So many big pics, in that amazing dress (Peter Pilloto) and Heavenly Necklaces earrings.
