Harrowing tale. Glad she has recovered so well. I agree with others regarding the wonderful shout-out to Charles.

Just five months on from that terrifying November evening, Sophie is finally ready to tell her story, including the overwhelming kindness and compassion she has been shown by senior members of the royal family. She reveals the "magnificently practical" gift from the Prince of Wales. "Prince Charles sensed correctly that everything would be chaos at home, so he asked his cook, instead of taking care of him, to take care of us. So, our lunches and dinners were cooked at Clarence House then delivered for weeks on end while I was in hospital and then still disabled at home."

As Iíve said before, I live in a very Rural area & Novemberís one of the times Iím scared to go out, especially early Evening. Itís Baby Making Time for the Deer & they literally can appear from out of nowhere out on the road.

One thing for that happening when itís only the vehicle youíre in on the road. Then you have the other side of the road clear to use for you or the Deer to get out of the way. When I heard what had happened to Sophie, & only the basic early info we got when the news broke, I had a good inkling of how bad her injuries would likely be. Reading her account of what happened though?

Iíve got goosebumps on my goosebumps. Her Guardian Angels were working overtime that night & the first few weeks & then some!!

It really was lovely to read how the Family rallied around Sophie, Freddie & the Girls. Especially what Charles did. Now that was really helping, because when something like this happens, you really are like a Zombie just trying to get through the day. When youíve got two little girls to take care of & get off to School, not to mention having to have some incredibly difficult conversations w/them about Mummy & what might happen....

As someone else said, food is the last thing you worry about. It really was the best thing Charles could have gave them to help them. Also William calling to make sure everything that could be done was being done.

I could have sworn I read somewhere close to Christmas that during the first weeks after the Accident, if the Girls were staying w/Granny & Grandpa at Kensington Palace, whomever was doing the School Run for George would pick up Maud too. As I said, I know I saw that somewhere, but where & is it even true...!?! It would make sense though. Theyíre at the same School after all & that would be another practical, yet very helpful, thing Freddie wouldnít have to worry about figuring out.

As I said though, I donít remember where I saw that or if itís even true, so take it w/a grain of salt.

So very happy Sophieís back on her feet & life for her & the Family is getting back to Normal.

Oh that poor girl. What a terrible thing to go through. So pleased to hear she is on the mend. Being young and healthy is a great help. How very thoughtful of Prince Charles to help in that way. May seem like a small thing but would have made a huge difference for her family. Also one more less worry for Sophie while she lay in hospital. Every little bit helps when people offer. I wish her well for the future.

Not that I have any personal connection or experience with Sophie personally but judging simply from this interview and previous interviews and quotes Sophie seems like an absolutely wonderful and genuine woman. She's lovely, yes, but she also seems so incredibly warm and grateful for the position she's in.

Lovely to read about a side of the BRF that we aren't always privy to. As for very practical and down to earth but what a fabulous help to Freddie and Sophie at such a traumatic time. Flowers and chocolates are lovely but real and practical gifts like his really show a deep understanding of the position they were in and what was likely to be of the most help. And, might I just add, kudos to Charles for seeing the reality of life and completely shredding, with one kind gesture, the image of him as removed and oblivious to what real life, and real life with small children, is like.

Since she also pretty much squashed the idea that the BRF are not close. That Charles is close enough to assess what was most needed speaks of closeness, as does Williams phone calls and the love and support of "pretty much all of Freddy's family".
