Edward looks like a 50/50 split between his Mother and Father.

I agree. The sheer panel just don't offer any support in the midriff. It's quite obvious in the photo with Prince Albert greeting her.

I think Sophie will be going solo in November to Canada. The visit seems to concentrate on Sophie's charities, especially those in Toronto.

I have always really liked Sophie but I have to agree that whatever advise she is getting about her wardrobe it is not the best and I am afraid that she is looking extremely matronly.IMO. The clothes she wore in Canada were just badly fitting especially the cream suit all in all not good and I do think she should dispose of that dreadful red sheer thing HORRID.I am really diappointed in her choices because I like her a great deal.

I have to agree her clothes and fashion sense are not great. She needs help she could dress more stylish and more her age. Maybe if she used well known designers that would help.

Britain's Prince Edward talks with Kenya's Turkana folk at the beginning of a four-nation tour of Africa, October 8, 2006. Queen Elizabeth's youngest son visited British-funded schools, hospitals and water projects around Lodwar in Turkana district in north-west Kenya, which has been hard hit by this year's drought across Africa.

Prince Edward lauds Presidentís Award scheme

Prince Edward of Britain has lauded the participation of Kenyan youth in the global Presidentís Award (PA) scheme.
Prince Edward, who is also the Earl of Wessex, expressed solidarity with the scheme, which incorporates young people, mostly volunteers.
"I support the PA idea in Kenya which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year," he said.

Its great to see the Earl bringing much needed attention to a terrible tragedy. And I can't wait to see Sophie later on in the week.

While reading an article about the Prince's visit, it disturbed me to hear him referred to a junior royal. Since when is the son of a Queen considered junior!

Edward and Sophie's to South Africa is going great. A lot of people turned out to meet them, more than I expected actually. Edward and Sophie were both nice. I had met them before and well, knew that. Edward appeared tired and relieved that Sophie was with him. They still have a week almost of engagements left in South Africa before returning home.

I've noticed that Sophie will not be accompanying Edward to Antiqua at the end of the month. It has also be announced that Edward will be in America while Sophie is in Canada in November.
