Just one nitpick...why did she not take her coat off?...
Maybe she was cold !!!

That often bothers me as well, I know she is in the constant movement, but surely her assistant could take care of her coat during her visit...
It would look much better, Kate does that too, and I wish they would change that. It would show even more commitment.

Doesn't she, though! Working out really shows. She is glowing. Her hair is looking particularly soft and unstudied, albeit still shaped. Nicely done. The softness really works.

I like the fact that Sophie opened a library.
It is nice to see that she, like Prince Nicolae of Romania, is involved with promoting reading.
Reading is fundamental for children.

I have checked an info on the visit to Bangladesh in March, as suddenly in royal diary appeared engagements on the same dates. Well, it turns out, someone posted OLD article from 2009. Not sure what's the point, only to mislead people I guess....
Here's original post: HRH The Countess Of Wessex Visits Bangladesh To Witness Fight Against Avoidable Blindness - Medical News Today
And here it is posted again on December 2014: HRH The Countess Of Wessex Visits Bangladesh To Witness Fight Against Avoidable Blindness | Eye Care Medical Blog

sorry for confusion.

The Earl of Wessex is in Northern Ireland today. Visits to Northern Ireland are often not made public until the day due to security reasons, and today is no different. Edward was visiting the Titanic quarters in Belfast which is where HMS Titanic was built and there is a museum dedicated to this. It's really fascinating as I visited it in 2012 when I was home in Northern Ireland visiting family. There was a bomb squad outside the building as a suspicious item was seen, which was later described as "nothing untoward" but Edward carried on with his visit inside near this item.

HRH The Earl of Wessex (Prince Edward) continued with visit to Titanic Belfast while bomb disposal team examined suspicious object nearby.

BBC News Northern Ireland

The main reason for his visit is for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award I believe.

The DM coverage this was atrocious. Headline: "Meanwhile... Prince Edward survives a security scare in Belfast"

Great photos Anna! You and Paul.
I didn't know you taught kindergarten.
For the longest time, I wanted to do that.

I'm sure! That's medal worthy! Congrats! I can tell you still love it, and am sure you're an awesome teacher. How you do that, and keep up with two blogs I don't know. Ever sleep?
