I must admit that Edward really doesn't look well.


You know the media reports that report on the items behind the royals during their zoom calls - I would really like to see the report about this Zoom call.

Edward did appear to have rather dark marks under his eyes but it does seem to be a problem with the screen lighting too. It seems he appears to be fine - or at least, I hope so!

Thank you - However the Daily Mail has failed miserably in providing any information at all . Tabloids are really loosing their touch.

I agree, I look shocking zoom lol.

Good to see the Daily Mail has picked up on Sophie and Edward's work with the NHS.

Dare I say it, they do seem to be getting more attention since Megxit, which I am pleased to see they are finally being recognized more in the press.

Honestly think has more to do with covid then it does the Sussexes. Last I looked it was not only Meghan who left the family either (Megxit )

There is not a lot of news right now. So any royal out there doing some work for the public is going to get some spotlight right now. The Yorks certainly have when they usually only get press when there is a vacation spin to it. Or wedding spin.

Edward does look a bit pale but likely just lighting. Nice to see him and Sophie with their work.

Its odd when you think about it - that William's generation have had some time with their grandparents - indeed some of them on both sides of the family. Edward was born after both grandfathers had passed. The Duke of Edinburgh's mom passed in 1969 when he was three. So it really was just the Queen Mother holding the fort.

That’s true....and quite a loss for all of HM’s children. Her family is long-lived, but her father died so young...

I had a zoom meeting today and forgot to put a sticker over my camcorder when I was eating my breakfast! At least Edward wasn't in that boat

Or Will Reeve, who did a bit for a morning show in the US NOT wearing pants. He looked tv-reporter ready from the waist up, but didn't realize that the camera caught his boxers... oops!

Yeah you could be right, it just seems a bit of coincidence that there were all these articles (yes I know take with a pinch of salt) earlier in the year with rumors that Edward / Sophie will have a higher profile with the Sussexs gone. We will have to see what happens following Covid (whenever that will be)

Whatever the reason, at least her work is being highlighted more publicly.
