I agree with you, Sophie does look nice in glasses!

Sophie looks lovely in glasses. She has that Librarian look about her, haha. In the background of some of the images you can see little James looking out the window. No doubt he's thinking, "who the heck are all these people at Granny's?!"

It took me a while to see the said glasses. I guess she has the really thin frames that cannot be seen unless one is really close to the person. I think glasses suit the Countess.

They send one every year, though I have only ever seen a few of them. They are rarely made public.

This is their card from 2010. I like that Sophie writes the girls' names and Edward does the boys!

Thanks for this!

I wonder when Louise and James will start writing their names in the card themselves?

Yes, you're right. It's a shame; i remember that decades ago the Kents and Gloucesters would frequently release family photos when their children were growing up, and of course the Wales (with Diana) did too; don't remember much about the Yorks. I'd love to see a complete formal Wessex family photo; i thought they might with their 10th wedding anniversary, but they just had those imformal shots at the Windsor Horse show.

The royal family don't do the official photos as they used to for some reason. The Queen & Prince Philip and the family used to do a lot of official photos. The Waleses released a lot, as well as the Yorks, Kents and Gloucesters.

I guess to satisfy the press, the Cambridges will start releasing family photos after the baby get here.

I don't think we will ever see an official family portrait of the Wessex's. There have been opportunities (James' Christening, which we saw without Louise and their 10th anniversary, which we only saw informal photos), but we know they are a very private family. Edward has never wanted to exploit his family, as he has always resented the media. He once said he did not want to be a performing puppet, doing as they say and pleasing them. I think Sophie would probably allow a photograph now, whereas a number of years ago she would not, but of course it would be a joint decision and if one doesn't want it then the other will not. Sophie and Edward have been more relaxed in bringing their children places now (the Olympic Torch relay, the Olympics/Paralympics, Easter, Christmas etc.)

The Wessex children were born in a time when the Royal family were not in their highest popularity. During the 80's and 90's the public adored the family, and loved any opportunity to see the young grandchildren of the Queen. By the time Louise and James came, people did not know who Edward was, nor his children - this is exactly how Edward likes it.
