She does look terrific. Is that her natural colour showing under her blonde hair?

This is the unfortunate conclusion of a chapter in Edward's life. However, I think that things have worked out for the best as far as the Wessexes are concerned. Edward's an able ambassador for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, and Sophie has turned out to be a real asset to The Queen.

Most likely, though I think she suits blonde hair much more than her natural colour, if brown is her natural colour.

That is very true and no matter how their married lives started with "scandals" and what not, they have become an excellent representative couple for the British Royal Family. I am always pleased to see them present at other Royal get togethers as it shows they have helped to bond Britain with the other Royal families, as I know Edward and Sophie are good friends of the other Royal couples, particularly Haakon and Mette-Marit and Willem and Maxima.

I'm in complete agreement here. I think that even if the company were to continue existing, there would be no time to devote to it. Edward and Sophie are great representatives of the Royal Family. I love Sophie's involvement with people who have special needs, and the fact that Edward is helping out more with the DOE Award. They won't be able to do these things if there was any TV company or whatnot to worry about.

Sophie is so lovely and I thought it was amusing how she donned wellington boots with her dress to go around the farm. Trooper. I love her coat a lot.

It's the return of the ever faithful nude shoes. I love them! Sophie appears to be so lovely, I would love to meet her. The second image is very pretty. The first images shows a lot of pupils watching her...i'd be terrfied to speak in front of that many people! The Royals are well rehearsed at this I imagine.

The Countess of Wessex also visitied Treolar College, Holybourne campus to celebrate sporton 20.10.11

Treloar's honoured by royal visit

Lovely dress Sophie is wearing, I look forward to seeing the full story when it becomes available.

Love these pics. Looks like she made everyone's day, as usual.
I love her involvement and her way with people with special needs. ( Pic 3, last set.)

The Countess of Wessex attended a reception at The Beacon Church in Surrey on 2 November.

Image 1

Click the link below for more images, adorable images of Sophie with the little girl in the above image, as well as another cute one of her smiling at a baby (#17).

Royal Visit

According to further reading (Preparing for a Royal Visit) The Sunday Express are doing an article on The Earl and Countess, which is due to be in the paper on the 27th November. I do hope it is praising them, as the reporter and photographer were there and I doubt Sophie would allow them to be there if it were negative press. Nice to see how they prepared for Sophie's attendance and how they were singing her praises. I was interested to see how much security she had with her, some of which were in plain clothes. I did not think Sophie would have had THAT much...?

Maybe there was a threat or a general high-alert situation?

You're welcome. :)

Found some more images of the engagement.

Royal Visit to Beacon

The photographer captured some lovely shots of Sophie, she is very photogenic. I particularly love the show in black and white of Sophie praying. (At least it looks like she is...)
