Always lovely to see Louise out and about, especially at an engagement. She's getting so grown up, and I love her outfit. She's rocking it.

Nice and especially positive surprise to see Louise on official engagement.

Thanks for those, as lately when I click on a DM link, I get a pop up over it and end up seeing nothing. Very frustrating!!

James seems like a lot of fun and he DEFINITELY gets bored and when he does comedic moments happen, like last summer during the commonwealth games when he decided hitting his daddy with a brochure was more fun than watching the sport. James hitting Edward. It was fun to see Edward and Sophie both chastise him - love a bit of normal parenting! "No James, don't hit Papa!"

He was also bored during the arrival of the olympic flame at Buckingham Palace in 2012 that he decided to hit Louise with is flag. I love this kid!

Such a silly headline. Had she not been presenting the cup, she's probably have been dressed more like Lady Louise.

Totally agree with you about James. He seems like a little ball of energy, and more than likely does bore easily. You can see it when he starts to fidget during events. His parents know this, so maybe that's why we see him at events that are a bit less formal, though he did fabulously at Trooping the Colour. I remember when he hit Louise with that flag. He was so enthusiastic, and it went a bit overboard. Louise wasn't too happy having her face smacked over and over. I think even at one point she tears up. Oh, the joy of younger siblings .

That moment at the Commonwealth Games was exactly what I was thinking of with regard to James being so energetic! Too cute. There's been more than one occasion (I think another was the first time James was at Trooping the Colour) when you see Edward and Sophie put in their "serious parenting" faces - they never seem to be angry with him or anything, just sort of calmly telling him to be still. It always makes me laugh - he's too adorable, and obviously has loads of personality.

It seems that Edward and Sophie increasingly like to include the kids in things when they can, and I always find it a nice surprise because I remember all those years when Louise was little and we basically never saw her, so I really didn't think they'd be bringing her (and sometimes James) along to public events as much as they do. But clearly they're a very close family, and as the kids get older, I'm sure Edward and Sophie enjoy bringing them along from time to time.

But clearly they're a very close family, and as the kids get older, I'm sure Edward and Sophie enjoy bringing them along from time to time.
I think his first Trooping was another moment when he was playing up as you said. You could see Sophie putting her arms around him to keep him still and not move around too much. In his defense he was only 5 - there aren't many 5 year olds who can stand still for that long. Louise was the same when she was 5 and on the balcony - she kept pulling Sophie's arms and pulling funny faces and she even "saluted" at one point.

I think it's great that they can bring the children to some engagements as they know they are engagements they will enjoy. Louise attended the Big Brownie Birthday last year as she was a member of the Brownies and it was lovely to see both children visit the Ubunye Foundation in South Africa during a Safari holiday. Sophie said she brought them a long so they know that South Africa is more than just animals. We will probably see both children more as the years go on. I am sure we will see them attend the major family events next year for the Queen's 90th birthday. I definitely think since William and Catherine's wedding we have seen more of Louise (and James). We didn't really see Louise up until then at 7 years old, whereas we have seen a lot more of James in his small years than we ever did of Louise.

I think this year will be James' Sandringham debut though as he was in his little suit at Trooping the Colour this year without his parents and an article recently mentioned that both he and Louise attended church during their visit to Balmoral this summer.

Louise is generally so much more sedate that her mom - it makes me chuckle. Daddy's girl!

These pictures remind me of the way my husband and I act during sporting events; he's more of a Sophie reaction, while I, for the most part just sit back and watch, reacting only when something major happens. Great images.

As a reminder, this thread is about the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Family Current Events. Accordingly, numerous posts discussing the clothes that are worn by Lady Louise Windsor have been moved to the following thread:

http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...a-38892-7.html

It would be useful if people could check that what they are about to post is actually in the correct thread as this will help prevent the discussion becoming off-topic.

The new headquarters for the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) have been officially opened by Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex.

He met staff and toured the new site in Newsham Court, Calcot.

Chief fire officer Andy Fry described the prince's appearance as the "icing on the cake".

The service's base was previously at Dee Road in Tilehurst, but was relocated to a converted retail and storage facility.

Great post Anna! The Countess looked wonderful, and I loved the articles about HM. Made me tear up. I love her. No one better- but William's getting there.
Still, there will never be another like her. I love her.
BTW, love the picture of Diana in the one article. Love that dress.
