[QUOTE=Molly2101;1303533] Another comment was stating why Sophie was married to someone like Edward? Um...maybe because she LOVES him? Just floating the idea! /QUOTE]

I actually think that Edward and Sophie do make a good couple. They have lovely children and are good ambassadors for the British royal family. Edward is also the only one of HM's children to have had a successful marriage so far without scandal. In spite of their failed business ventures which were pursued in order to try and be self-supporting, I think this couple has done really well. Sopie is also well liked by HM and plays the part of a royal figure very well. In fact she seems to be blossoming as she matures in life.

Don't worry, I agree with you regarding their marriage and family. I was simply stating that it gets annoying reading people's comments about why on earth she is married to "someone like Prince Edward". People do not see their relationship in the same light as we do. It does get annoying to read it. People have nothing else better to do with themselves really. I am glad you agree that they are a couple who are obviously very happy together, and it is beautiful to see.

I hope Edward and Sophie are having a nice summer holiday. No doubt they took a visit to HM in Balmoral at some point! I'd love to see another image of the Queen with Louise and James. It would be very cute!

"someone like Edward"...IMO, Sophie married very well. They obviously love each other and they always look so happy. Sophie has become a real asset to the BRF and HM seems to be very fond of her.

Thanks for the link MagMil. Nice that they like Sophie; their twitter account is quite an amusing read. They refer to Sophie as SexySophie, haha.

Thank you for the link to the blog . Some of the facts were new to me. Glad to get a better picture of Sophie though. She's becoming one of my favorite royals rather quickly.

She has and always will be one of my favorite royals. It is nice to see a marriage succeeding in royalty rather than consistently hearing about affairs or how unhappy they are in the marriage.

Sophie's my favourite Royal too; but i also feel it's got something to do that we're much the same age (I'm just a teensy bit older); it's easier to relate to someone the same age. I am interested in Kate and what she's doing; she is lovely but how can anyone relate to that perfection?

The Countess of Wessex visited Nuffield Health Hospital in Tunbridge Wells today.

Image

The Countess of Wessex tries her hand at using the Laproscopic (keyhole surgery) trainer in the new digital theatre guided by Deputy Theatre Manager Nasreen Young and Consultant Urologist Mr.John Donohue at the Nuffield Health Hospital in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. 08/09/2011

Reference = Metro News

Sophie is bringing out the Ascot clothing now. I wasn't enamoured by that ensemble when I first saw it, and I am still not overly sure on the jacket. The dress underneath, however, looks lovely.

She did look like she had fun. I have found some more images of the visit:

One and Two

A few more can be found here.

I love the few of Sophie "performing" surgery. Amusing.

I love the fact that she wants to learn and be hands-on. She looks like she's enjoying herself.

Sophie the Surgeon. Reminds me of the game Operation!
A little bit more hi-tech here of course!

Let's hope no machines buzzed as she touched the sides! I love that Sophie is hands on, getting stuck in to try it all out. I wonder if the patient was aware that Royalty would be performing on her!
