I think the problem is that the press can't report on Kate doing anything because she isn't so they did a rare story on Sophie because they could include Kate in the story.

I don't see the Wessex's moving to centre stage - particularly as they have moved further from the throne since George was born. Edward started life as 3rd in line and is now down to 8th and will only drop further and further as William, Harry, Beatrice and Eugenie have their families.

The BRF seems to be in transition mode even though William is the only one who has been officially labeled as such.

Here's an article from The Daily Mail with more photos of Louise and James horse riding:

Quote:
Prince Edward, the Countess of Wessex and their children enjoyed a Royal family day out in the sunshine as they rode horses around the Queen's Windsor home.

The prince's 10-year-old daughter Lady Louise looked every inch the confident horsewoman as she went without a saddle to ride bareback around the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Her younger brother James, six, was led around by a stablehand as Edward, sporting pair of brown riding boots, walked alongside another horse and proud mother Sophie watched on.

I'm sure the visit to Frimley Park Hospital was a very emotional one, it must've bought back a lot of memories for Sophie. The photo of her and the little newborn is lovely.

I don't see a Countess here- I simply see a loving mother.
Wonderful.
As always, great with children, and looks divine too.

I tend to be able to do that.
Boy, could my mom and Sophie have a conversation- both NICU moms.
Looking forward to the joint engagement. The Earl and Countess with children is always a treat.

I'm not sure there will be children at the joint engagement.

Osborne House was Queen Victoria's home on the Isle of Wight. This seems to be an exhibition about her children at Osborne that is being put on there that the Earl and Countess will be opening.

I think it's lovely that Sophie hugged the head of Midwifery Adrienne who was a big part of Louise's birth. I believe she was called in to the unit as soon as they received the call from Ambulance control about Sophie's imminent arrival as the Heads of Midwifery tend to do 9-5, Mon-Fri. I work in Guildford, Surrey as a midwife and one of my colleagues used to work at Frimley and was on shift the night Sophie was brought it. She said it was a very serious situation and they believed they would not save her uterus or her life due to her blood loss. They did an amazing job in saving her. Marcus Setchell arrived after Sophie got there and after they had began her C-section, but it was the Frimley obstetricians and anaesthetists who essentially saved her life.
