Thank you, Mag. Sophie looks fabulous with those shades, and Edward is really resembling Wills from that angle.

It's very nice seeing the Earl and Countess of Wessex undertaking a visit to the Caribbean.
Thank you for the updates, MagMil! :flowers: Sophie looked pretty in the pics.

Thanks for the images, I love the image of them arrivng and Sophie has her shades on. Very chic. The other images of them greeting the children are lovely and I love Sophie's green dress. Very appropriate. I am so pleased she can wear her hair up more, she looks so great. Edward looks good too, let's not forget him.

If Sophie were to wear that dress on a wet February day in England it would look all wrong, but worn in the sunny Caribbean it really works.

I know, that is exactly what I thought. It works so well for the Caribbean, but in "Sunny old England" it would be a big no no. She makes it work with her blonde hair too.

An article about the couple visiting The University of the West Indies with a few images. Another new dress for Sophie, I like it. I love her hairstyle for that occasion.

I quite like this dress too, Molly. Her hairstyle is very pretty as you say.

It's sad that Edward and Sophie's visits don't receive the press attention they should. I suppose it's the result of having a pretty large pool of active royal family members at the moment. The press can't cover all the overseas visits I suppose for cost reasons.

Molly2101 02-23-2012 06:09 PM

I feel an Ascot dress can be made out of the white/brown dress...

It is sad they don't receive the attention they deserve. We're relying on the countries they are visiting to report them, not one of the British press has mentioned it. The only ones who will get all the attention are Charles and Camilla, William and Catherine and Harry. Shame really.

Both look great :smile:
another lovely dress :smile:, and when I saw ,instantly cross in my mind that "It would be a very nice Ascot dress " :tongue:;)

I think they are really good representative for the Queen, but it's little media coverage of them :ermm:

Molly2101 02-23-2012 06:59 PM

A few more images of the couple in Barbados, via Facebook. Sophie has her wedding hat on, I forgot how odd it is...but it works with the dress.

Sophie looks fabulous! The hair style is simply beautiful and the dresses are classy and comfortable. She has a smile for everyone anywhere she goes. I think that makes people feel very much at ease.

Love the dress not sure I love the wedding hat with it though nice snaps

Molly2101 02-24-2012 08:42 AM

Thanks for the pictures. The Queen's Private Secretary has released that the dress Sophie is wearing is by Max Mara. Never heard of the label but I googled it and it looks nice, and of course, expensive!

I love how much wear her nude LK Bennett shoes have had. All the Royal women must own more than one pair of them. I look forward to more images, and hope at least a video of them is released somewhere. The ship they are using to travel looks impressive, I am in awe of it.
