What are the standard practices or policies of the British Royal Family's official Twitter account in regard to liking tweets?
I'd say that generally the royal family's account only likes Tweets that are related to the causes and organisations the royals support. I don't think there's ever been a case where an official account has liked a personal post such as this. They tend to stick to engagements and official information only - e.g. the @theroyalfamily account has recently been Tweeting mostly about Charles's trip to Japan.

Sophie gave a lovely speech and referred to the Queen as “Mama” which was so nice.

I think they should have offered HM a chair. Letting stay on her feet that long was difficult to watch and for her maybe a bit hard to do.

I think it is wonderful that as a consequence of her I'll health the Queen invited Sophie to drive to and from chuch with her and that from that simple act of kindness a deep and abiding friendship, if not love, has developed over the years. They really are close and just like any other M-I-L I bet she got the warm fuzzies when Sophie called her Mama.

Is there a video of the speech where the Countess refers to the Queen as Mama?

I've always heard that Sophie was HM's favourite in-law, but I didn't realise quite how close they just were. Lovely to see.

Their bond was born out of a near tragedy and while Sophie was recovering her M-I-L HAD her join her in the car on the way to and from church. From that simple act of kindness a deep and abiding mutual respect and love was born over the ensuing years, so hardly surprising that she should call her Mama.

That there is a deep and close relationship between the Queen and Sophie is not debatable, IMO. I am not sure that it originated out of a car ride to church after Sophie's ectopic pregnancy though. It may all have been around that time, but that may just be co-incidental, as it was relatively early in the Wessex marriage, and not that long after Sophie had, had to give up her professional career after the NoTW revelations.

They may have done so and she refused. As this is a reception where she tends to like to mingle it is harder for her when she is seated as she can't get away from people as easily.

Royal Variety Performance is on 18th November this year. Going by their rotating schedule it should be Charles and Camilla this year. However, they are in New Zealand at the time. Wonder who will go instead? I assume the Cambridges and the Waleses will just switch years.

I guess there won't be a tiara appearance by Meghan this year as they are on leave.
