I commented Anna. :)

We were talking about meeting famous people last night at work, and one off my said she met Sophie at BP. My colleague was nominated for an award for her services to Childline and NSPCC and met Sophie at a reception at the palace. She said she was really pretty up close, but not as tall as she had though.

I was a wee bit jealous.

Yes, I noticed, thank you Molly! Your support is appreciated.
I read somewhere that she is about 165 cm tall. Still 7 cm taller than me
I would love to meet her one day.

I'm not reading the Mail cos it is a rag and this is an example.

The British media at it's worse - repeating 10+ years old events as if they are current in order to disguise the trial of one of their own. Disgraceful.

This hacking trial has been less about the criminals and more about the victims. It is revealing more private information about the victims lives that was obtained illegally. The trial has been a great source of stories for the media. They are printing all this new info that was obtained through hacking.

This Sophie story is from 2011, 13 years ago!!!! She has worked hard these 13 years for the royal family. Don't know why it's being reported like its something new.

Typo - it's 2001.

ITs being reported like it's now because it places the emphasis away from media hacks and their owners. It is the media protecting itself. Makes me wild!

Wowsers. I'm sad for the Para-olympians that Vlad has decided he needs to rattle his sabre NOW. The man needs to learn some manners. IMHO

The man needs shoved out the door IMO.

I wonder how quickly Vancouver Whistler can be readied for a just in case scenario....

Been enjoying the coverage of the Wessexes in Barbados and also learned something too!! Did not know their Parliament Buildings were that old. :)

Although it's none of my business, I do wonder who Edward & Sophie leave the kids with when they go on these foreign tours? Is it with their nanny or with family members?

They have a nanny that works for them for many years now, she was with Sophie amd children at the Coronation Festival. And she goes with them, at least used to go on vacations.

As Anna said, they have had the same Nanny since Louise was born. Unlike William and Catherine, they realised they needed a nanny from day 1. You can't be a working royal and not have a Nanny.

The Daily Express has done an article on Edward turning 50 on Monday.

Prince Edward at 50 - A Retrospective

I am sure he'll be having a big knees-up in private for his birthday at some point.

i see in the Daily Mirror that Sophie has made Edward a This is your life book as a present for his 50th. The book included poems and pictures by his children. The book also has pictures of the whole family and their pets. It seems a very sweet and sentimental gift and I hope that Edward enjoys it terribly. i can imagine that the Queen and DOE also added to it.

I love Sophie's gift to Edward, it's very personal and shows she knows him. I really hope the photo released tomorrow is not just of Edward, but it most likely will be.

Another "50 Facts" about Edward in honour of his birthday.
