I have a friend who is a keen hockey player and plays for our county's hockey team, and she has been to most of the matches at the World Cup but went away yesterday so missed Sophie handing out the awards.
It's a nice surprise to see Louise there too - I didn't realise that she was interested in hockey.

If we had to compare, I think CP Mary's dress at a wedding earlier this summer was more Pretty Woman

Of course, they are perfectly nice dresses on their own

We've been seeing a lot of Sophie and Louise lately! I presume they're not at Balmoral at the moment? I remember seeing photos of them in Edinburgh in late June/early July so they may have gone earlier this summer.

Not certain if I like this or not. Don't get me wrong it is great seeing Louise out and about -wished we saw more of James. But should she be really be at an official duty? She seemed a bit uncomfortable in the blue dress. Maybe she has an interest in the event - suppose we will never know?

To me she didn't look uncomfortable, a matter of interpretation I guess. But I'm sure she had an interest in all of the latest events and attended by her own choice

Here's an additional video:

I totally get how Lady Louise, as an emerging adolescent, may have expressed an interest in accompanying her mother on a walk-about. (Lady Louise comes across as a genuine, down-to-earth girl, naturally friendly and sincere, with a remarkable lack of self-consciousness for someone her age). There has been a lot of camera interest in Lady Louise since the Cambridge wedding and she clearly was charmed by the interest in her as a child. But I am wondering if this just lends itself to future problems, like what seems to have happened with the York sisters. Just wondering what others think.

P.S. I think it's great of Sophie to include Louise at these events btw. Great parenting.

I think a large part of the York sisters' problems is that a lot of people don't like their parents - one or both of them. Lady Louise doesn't have that problem. Her father has some nay sayers, not many, but her mother is pretty much universally admired as far as I can see. I too love seeing Lady Louise out and about especially accompanying her mother on engagements like this. It is great parenting.

Hmm - not too certain James is enjoying that. But I am happy to see Edward purposely spending time with him.

James isn't enjoying the paparazzi taking pictures of him in the car. No surprise there. Your statement about Edward purposely spending time with his own son is an odd one.

Sorry - not my intention - just that he is engaging in something that James is interested in doing. But yes - completely remove implication.
