What a wonderful story and gift from Sophie. Loved his reply about why it's not such a bad thing to have lost a leg, but the again, he's also a member of a very special Generation who very much dealt w/it and just got on w/things. They haven't been named The Greatest Generation for nothing. :)
Oh, I so agree! Think of all the good Sophie has done, that would not have happened had she died. I cannot imagine the royal family without her. And Louise and James would not be here.
Forgot to say in my earlier post how much I loved the man's response to losing a leg- But seriously, that is the right attitude to have....

I just read this and realised you were referring to Sophie dying during Louise's birth. Oh my word, that is an awful though. Frimley Park staff and Marcus Setchel saved Sophie's life and Edward made a little speech when he went to see her to the press. He thanked the staff for their immediate reactions and saving Sophie's life. He was obviously very appreciative and this situation gave the public a different opinion of the Wessex's. The public had huge sympathy for the family as Sophie nearly died and was very ill.

It's not official so no The Countess does not have twitter. It's fake along with the rest of the royal accounts.

That is what I though, and then I saw that someone from the visit to Leeds today added the account in one of her tweets...

I can't see Sophie using Twitter, yet I didn't see Andrew using it either to be honesrt.

Duke of York account has been veryfied etc... I hope one day Countess will join twitter as well. But that account appears fake to me, because of the choice of pictures. I am pretty sure real Sophie, would have used something totally different, and it would come along with some confirmation. Frankly everything about that account screams fake...
What DStJ. can stand for?

I think it's a fake too. I think Sophie would do well to get a twitter account though. Lots of other Royals have accounts. It helps to publicise what they are doing as everyone uses Twitter now.

It is Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of Saint John of Jerusalem. Sophie is a Dame of Justice of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem.

To me?
You mean comment that "Sophie has been involved in some pretty shady dealings and the fake sheik"?
That story, which I am sure we know only part of it, has happened more than a decade ago, and it has no meaning to me.
I use this forum only to support Countess and her work, I am not dealing with people who want to use it, to share their frustration. How many times people will use the same phrase? "badmouthed members of the BRF", It's getting so boring, maybe some new choice of words would help?
btw, darling? I had no idea you had liked me so much...


So, to move on, 2 pics from visit to the hospital.

I don't think Lumutqueen was being offensive, Anna. I think she was complimenting you in the sense that you are a supporter of Sophie so she was going to let you remark on Princess me's comments about Sophie and speak highly of Sophie.

As Anna said, that Fake Sheikh situation was in 2001. A long time ago in the grand scheme of things and Sophie has done a lot since then to prove she is a committed royal family member. The Queen forgave Sophie and has since then, reportedly, become very close to Sophie and is said to have her as favourite. I think if the Queen can get over it, so can the public. At the end of 2001 she obviously suffered an ectopic pregnancy where again she lost a lot of blood and was very ill. This made the public sympathise with her a lot, and helped her image. I know that it's horrible that it took something so negative and horrible to change her public image, but to be fair Sophie NEEDED to change her image at the start of her time as an HRH. She was definitely milking it but part of me of thinks, "Who wouldn't?" She changed a lot and has since become very popular and long may it continue.

Thanks for the images, Anna. I am not sure I like her red dress but she is pretty as always!

I'm not sure about that Molly but my comment was more toward person who made sheik comment.
It's just there is this site: royaldish, and there is topic about Sophie, and that sheik comment reminded me so much about that place.
There are so many people who literally hate Countess and write their comments only to say hateful things about her. I just don't get it...

As for her dress, I like her in red, that dress looks like was made for her, because of the detail on sleeves and neckline. I like it. But no idea who made it. Countess visited today Goldsmiths Fair, but couldn't find a single pic. Maybe tomorrow.
Wonder if she got some new jewellery.
From the tweets the South Africa visit should get coverage, not from press, as I haven't heard anything from any photographer, but UK in SA, their consul and a PR person were really nice and said who to follow, and that they will be sharing pics and info. It wasn't like that when I was asking about India & Qatar, so I am being so far optimistic in that topic.
I am really axcited about that.

Thanks for checking about their trip to SA, Anna.

I am looking forward to seeing Edward installed as a Chancellor at Bath University in November. Mainly because it has happening at Bath Abbey which is BEAUTIFUL. When I visited Bath in March of this year I was blown away by the architecture, and the Abbey inside was stunning.
