I have to agree since Camilla has arrived at the scene Edward and Sophie are rarely if ever reported on these days. Not they were greatly coveed in the first place. But I used to be able to find small intimate articles about them when they had engagements in small publications. Now it is just Charles, Camilla, William and Harry. It is a way things are just going to be from now on.

That rumour about Sophie cutting back on engagements didn't pan out. If anything she has done more this year, she has also taken on more patronages. The Wessex's are going to have a very busy year, with The 50th Anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards and the Commonwealth Games. They are going to be very busy.

I am told that in the new copy of Hello! Magazine, it is reported that Lady Louise underwent her eye op before her second birthday.

Merry Christmas, Everyone

I noticed their January Agenda and I think it's curious that they will be away (abroad in Florida) on January 20th, Sophie's 41th birthday. You'd think that she would want to spend it with her daughter and her family, her father and brother.

An example of Royal duties taking precedence over personal circumstances. I'm sure the Florida society ladies will be well-aware it's Sophie's birthday and come up with something appropriate for the occasion.

Sophie's new patronages

Hi,

I noticed that the Countess of Wessex has been named as the Royal West and Bath Society. Oddly she will undertake the position in 2007 till 2008. She also has the Agricultural Society of England to her patronages will October 2006.

So we will no doubt be seeing more photos of the Countess chatting to cows.

Claire doesn't say it is the Wessex Christmas Card in her post (#101). It is obviously a mock-up.

Sorry for the confusions. The pic, post 101, was done by me for House Wessex. The Wessex's Christmas was on The Royalist. The article is called Season Greetings from Edward and Sophie'

Happy Birthday, Sophie , who is celebrating her 41st Birthday today.
Edward and Sophie are currently in Palm Beach, Florida to attend events for the International Award Association. Edward will also be awarded with an International Humanitarian Award tomorrow for services to the world's youth by Orbis International.

There doesn't appear to have been any news coverage of Edward and Sophie's trip to Florida. Edward did however grant this interview with the local newspaper.

British royals visit to share gift of vision

Wednesday, January 25, 2006

The evening was fit for a king, but since kings are in short supply, Palm Beachers welcomed a prince — His Royal Highness Edward and his wife, Sophie, at Saturday's ORBIS Global Ball.

The ball — an event that made guest Lilly Pulitzer exclaim "This is Palm Beach the way it used to be!" — was held in a hangar at Palm Beach International Airport to show off the organization's DC-10 flying hospital and classroom which visits 60 countries a year to provide vision care.

The royal couple, officially called the Earl and Countess of Wessex, arrived Thursday by commercial jet with a small entourage, including Edward's private secretary and personal attendants for both Edward and Sophie.

Just like the old days when their relatives the Duke and Duchess of Windsor hit town, they stayed at The Colony hotel. They relaxed most of Friday and then attended a reception at the home of gala chairman Audrey Gruss for 20 guests who contributed at least $25,000 each to the event.

Go to this link and you can read about their trip to Palm Beach. For those if you not aware, Palm Beach is the last bastion of real high society in the United States...where the old money and aristocratic families rule if in name only and where new money can only go so far.

The party they attended was co-hosted by Dame Celia Lipton Farris, who is British by birth, and hosted along with Tom Quick at his home.

I am sure their Royal Highnesses had a wonderful time.
