The Earl and Countess of Wessex to visit the Czech Republic

Quote:

The Prince and his wife were invited by the Czech branch of the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Foundation and the British Embassy in Prague. The full itinerary of the Royal couple is yet to be confirmed, but some engagements will include presenting international certificates from the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Foundation and the promotion of British goods and products sold in the country.

Another little trip for the Wessex's. March is a busy month for them, but of course the Duke of Edinburgh's Award requires a lot of travel. It's nice that Sophie goes along too, as it shows her support for the award and makes it nicer when she is Duchess of Edinburgh.

Ducii 03-04-2013 06:26 PM

The date is set. The visit will take place on 12th March. No official program published...

I agree, in Czech Sophie is called "hrabenka z Wessexu", that helps when searching for pics:

That dress that Sophie is wearing is simply awful - has she actually put it on properly - it looks like it is caught up in her panties and needs to be pulled down at the front.

Lumutqueen 03-12-2013 03:33 PM

It's not a dress. It's a suit with a skirt attached to the suit jacket. Making it look almost like a coatdress but shorter at the front. If it wasn't matchy matchy material and the same length all the way around she probably could have pulled it off. I'm trying to find the designer.

Here's a front on picture - http://25.media.tumblr.com/de6b82206...yrho1_1280.jpg

I think it's a sort of flared riding jacket with pants underneath. I agree- it's a little odd.

It's by McQueen. And btw it's a ruffle coat.

God I hate that coat. Edward burn it for your wife, along with her white pant suit.

Lovely images though, nice to see a few images of their visit so far. Unusual of Getty to publish photos, this makes me happy :D

:O That is an expensive coat! Edward's had the same suits for years, however his wife has 7 wardrobes! :D

MOlly I love this look!!! And her white pansuit by Wickstead also, maybe not from the back, but from the front it looks good on her :)

:D Anna, I am not a fan of either outfits. They just don't win me over! I do love her shoes though and I love that her hair is down.

I am glad there are some videos, though I wish I knew what they were saying in some of them.

I just found out both women were born in 1965 (First Lady is a bit younger than Sophie) but look at the difference. I did read Ivana is quite shy and reserved, but Sophie does look a bit younger. I want her genetics...

They all talk about Edward and Sophie's visit to the Theatre and Edward presenting DOE certificates.
Main Info; Prince Edward in Prague praises the student as he goes to the theatre. It was a production of The King's Speech. In the morning the prince gave the Czernin Palace certificates 35 Czech students who have successfully completed the program Foundation International Award Duke of Edinburgh.
