Did anyone read this article?

I liked the article I especially like this part:

Back in the gala tent, they barely had time to eat as friends and guests wanting to meet royalty stopped by their table. Among their friends was Palm Beacher Barbara Wainscott Berger, who entertained Edward at a dinner in her home in 1997 and attended his wedding to Sophie in New Zealand a year later.

Funny if it was true

I like the Countess but the jacket is way to tight on her and her hair is not really flattering her. Also, her face looks different but I dont know what exactly.

SOPHIE GETS A HI-TECH MASTERCLASS FROM HER YOUNGER FANS

Sophie Wessex showed her aptitude for modern technology when she visited a group of youngsters in Gloucestershire this week. The countess joined pupils at Kings Stanley Junior School in Stroud on Wednesday afternoon as they opened their laptop computers and got down to some hi-tech learning.

It wasn't clear who had the greater expertise when the pretty royal crouched down for a chat with one young boy, but, judging by the looks of concentration on both of their faces, the two were equally immersed in the task at hand.

I wish she had worn a hat for the send off of the ship. It seemed to be a very important event and I think she would have looked more formal or maybe more dressed up.

Voice clip of Sophie launching HMS Daring

I've never heard her speak before and I never thought she'd sound like that but it was a pleasant surprise

Hi Will's princess. Glad you liked the audio of Sophie I posted. It's funny, I've had a few people PM me to say they never expected Sophie to talk like that. I think some people expected her to be posher or something?

Cheerio.
Joanne :)

I liked the clip! Too bad she didn't christen a cruise ship. Did you know that if you christen a cruise ship, you become its godmother and can sail on it once a year for free? (I can't imagine that you'd really want to sail on a warship for amusement.)

I read somewhere that it traditional to give a tiara as a gift to a royal lady after she launches a ship. Does anyone know if the MOD has asked for Sophie's head measurements?
