Anna- Loved this post.
Love the violet hat in 2010, and the light blue one at Ascot.
Added bonus - the lovely Duchess of Cambridge in that divine hat, and best of all, William in a top hat!

Sophie has always had the ability to find new designers to suit her style and Heavenly Necklaces was a find of hers as well.I love her hats now they were a bit questionable prior but very elegant now IMO

Glad you liked it. It was something I wrote in the heat of the moment.
I will have official pictures from the visit to hospital, and most likely from 30th anniversary gala of Tomorrow's people for my blog! YAY
But here's a little preview from today. To me she is perfect.

Sophie looked lovely today and I really love those earrings. Her smile is basically what makes her look so pretty. She should just smile all the time really. Not a hard thing to do!

Nice to see Edward's visit was covered.

Sophie wasn't wear her wedding rings. That may be the first time I have noticed that. Love the image of her with the baby in the cot.

It's mandatory to remove jewellery from hands when visiting a hospital and use antibacterial soap or something to hands. She is meeting very ill children, so they cannot risk their lives. That's only why she isn't wearing jewellery.

That is true but I am sure she has worn her jewellery before. My midwife colleagues wear a plain wedding band to work as that is allowed.

She did wear in hospitals, but at some point she removed it always. She was meeting children waiting for transplants or after transplants, so I am sure she was briefed before, and just didn't take anything with her. BTW recently she only wore her diamond band, without wedding band.

Love all the pictures in this post. Loved the one of the baby in the cot.
I do not see a Countess there- I see a Mummy.

OKAY...THAT'S IT!!! I am beyond frustrated here and ticked off!!!!!

For the last few weeks, whenever I try to access certain sites like Anna's site on Sophie or The Express, I get a blank page over top of it after about a few seconds w/Twitter Widget Help at the top of the page and it will *not* go away!! If I hit the back button, the blasted thing just refreshes itself instead of taking me back to the site I want to look at.

Has anyone else had this issue and if so, how do I get rid of it? I would very much like to access Anna's excellent site again w/out having to reload and attempt speed reading the contents before that (insert favourite swear word here) widget thing kicks in.

Thank you for sharing this Anna. I love seeing Sophie with children. She has a way with them.

You're correct; I don't see a Countess either. More than likely, she was remembering her own experience of seeing her daughter in a crib like that when she was little.

I was just about to post the same thing! The photo of Sophie gazing down at the baby in the cot was my favourite too. Judging by her facial expression, I can imagine that the little one reminded her of Louise and James when they were babies. Sophie is a natural with children.

PS = I'm joining the chorus of those who have thanked Anna for her hard work and blog. I'm always impressed at how fast you ID Sophie's clothes and jewellery.

Looks like your computer has been spammed. There are certain ways to clean it, block ads and so on, ask someone who knows that stuff, I won't be able to help. I would need to see your computer in order to do so.

Sophie is a braver lady than I for holding that eagle. I would not even want to get close let alone hold it!
