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.
It's a great experience for you, Claire. The Earl of Wessex has been quite active on work as always but we hope with Sophie there can help him more energy to continue work.
It appears on the Royal Diary of Engagements that the couple will have engagements in Canada and America on their own respectively as you say. And it is a pity that they will miss out this year's Diplomatic Reception which always gives appearances of glittering tiaras.

Earl and Countess of Wessex wow old and young

The Earl and Countess of Wessex continued their whirlwind visit to Cape Town on Monday, with visits to three agencies that have made significant inroads against HIV and Aids.

No I didn't get to talk to them personally. They did stop to talk to the kids in front of me - so I heard them saying how much they enjoyed visiting and the usual royal muttering. I do however have to say that Edward really needs to change the speech he makes at the these award ceremonies - I have attended two now and have read up on others he does around the globe and it is pretty much the same speech.

Sophie looks so much better with her hair short. It is also nice that Camilla loaned her hat to Edward, I hope he keeps it.

Claire, I only see tollfreepage.com's home page when I click on your links. Are there supposed to be linked directly to photos?

I have been trying to find photos of the South Africa trip but apart from the few small shoots at housewessex there appear to be none. Has anyone managed to find anything else? I would love to see Sophie abroad there seems to be so little coverage of them at any of these events it always so disappointing. The English press seem happy to go all out with crumby news about Sophie particularly but never the terrific and charming person she seems to me to be. Only my thoughts mind you but I would love to see more and the upcoming Canada trip will probably be the same.

There was coverage of the trip on the South African news. Some really nice footage - but I am unable to put it online. There was also some other pics that appeared in numerous newspapers, but I acted to late it get them online. Sorry.

IT’S party-time de luxe right now, and the latest top-drawer thrill came as South Africa’s great and good put on their grandest gear for a dinner to honour Prince Edward, the Duke of Essex, and his wife, the attractive Countess Sophie. :)

No wonder we could find no news articles, we should have been searching under Edward's other numerous names and titles.
Here is an interesting article by South African top social columnist:

Duke of Essex? Since when Edward has been Duke of Essex?

The person writing this is so busy drooling over the clothes and name dropping, it was a mere slip of the pen! Unless he has heard something...

She is a social columnist - drool over clothes and name drop is that she does for the living.
I pity poor Edward they never seem to get his title or even name right. The Australians are the worse - Some were even calling him Prince William, than there are the normal Prince Philips, Andrews and Charles. There are always a few Dukedoms tossed his way, Essex, Edinburgh I even saw one newspaper refer to him as Duke of England.

Personally I would consider wearing one of those name tags, Hi, I name is ...

Some news about Edward's engagements today. He was flying solo after Sophie cancelled her engagements for the week - off sick.
