You are not offending anyone but we all are getting too far from the topic of this discussion - Current Events of the Earl and Countess of Wessex.
Please, stay on topic.

Thank you for co-operation

Gallery of pictures.
I think she looks conservative but lovely. She looks her age, and beautiful for her age.

I spoke to my Aunty Minnie who attended the DOE Awards presentation here in Pretoria. Her grandson, Johan got his gold. Anyway she met Edward and Sophie. She said that Edward is very nice and looks like his grandfather, King George, whom she admits she had a crush on in the 1930's. She was most concerned about his accent through. And would like to ask the Queen why her son sounds like a middle class South African with a hint of New Zealand. She would like to suggest that the boy be sent to a linquist to get some sort of accent and perhaps prevent him from getting over excited and using his hands too much in speeches. (Her exact words).

She noted that Edward and Sophie are much nicer than Charles and Diana (whom she didn't like as she couldn't look her directly in the eyes). She says Sophie appears a lot like the Queen she has the same sort of personality which is good as men should marry women like their mothers.

Edward spent some time in early 1980's studying in New Zealand. When big brother Charles and his then wife went on their Australia-New Zealand tour, there were some photos of the three together.

Yep, the clothes are looking a bit small, but if you have them flaunt them.
Did you notice Sophie was wearing the white ribbon? Is there are charity in Britain with the ribbon? I was wondering as the white ribbon is worn here in South African last week or November and first two weeks of December as the Appeal to stop violence against Women and Children. Sophie and Edward visited one of the stations when they were down here. So I thought that maybe she brought one of the designer ones they had for sale. They really had some nice ones and all the money goes to the charity as they designers donated their time and the diamonds and gold and stuff were donated.

The outfit is far too tight, you would think she had enough money to go out and buy something new that actually fitted. Edward obviously didn't notice!
Yes the white ribbon is worn here, for the same cause, from November 25th for 2 weeks, so I don't know why she is still wearing it.

The outfit looks lovely. The Countess always manages to look elegant. And I'm not biased - honest!

If I've said it once I'll say it again, the Countess bears a striking resemblence to Gillian Anderson, the actress who played Agt. Dana Scully on the X-Files. They always remind me of each other.

Gillian Anderson is always beautifully dressed. She was in Bleak House recently (on the BBC and DVD) and did a marvelous job!

My husband is convinced that Sophie and Fern Britton are merging into the same person.

Countess of Wessex visited Westminster Bridge Road

Last week Sophie, Countess of Wessex, visited Westminster Bridge Road to rename the offices of the Greater London Fund for the Blind, Sir John Mills House.
The renaming is in honour to the late Sir John Mills CBE who was a vice-president of the charity.
Guests at the ceremony included Hayley Mills, Lord Attenborough, Sir Donald Gosling and Cherie Booth, who are both vice-presidents of the charity.

Is Sophie alright?
This is very odd, but did anyone notice that at the Ritz Ball, Edward helped Sophie up the stairs and helped her to her chair. At the church service on Monday, most of the media mentions that she wobbled out of the car till the door and then wobbled back after the service. Is it an unfortunate choice of shoe wear or is her back giving her more trouble?
I noticed that Edward will be in Florida later in January. The hotel says that Edward and Sophie are expected. But Buckingham Palace only has Edward going.

Royalty meets footballers' wives

The Countess of Wessex has visited Reading Football Club to find out about the charity work undertaken by the players' wives and girlfriends (WAGS).
The Countess met children who had benefited from the group's fundraising.
