Sophie's been doing a lot of work, insofar as anyone can during lockdown - she's been helping to deliver free meals, and writing a letter for the Women's Institute magazine, and she's going to be opening (by video link) the new Nightingale Hospital near Sunderland next week.

I just wish Edward was with her. If only for a pic or two. Yes - i know that is not what volunteering is about.
I really would like Sophie to have more recognition for her work. But I don't think she is trying to take anyone place - I really think that is just the tabloids been the tabloids. There is work to be done and everyone can chip in.

This is why I regard her as among the most hardworking in the British Royal Family. Even before the lockdown, she's been doing a lot of work. I hope she keeps it up while keeping safe at the same time especially now that we're in the middle of a pandemic.

I also like how Sophie is doing it for the NHS, it is clear how much Sophie still appreciates the NHS and is grateful for their incredible treatment / support of her and Louise even after all these years. Ditto re her support of of the air ambulance service.

In fairness to the Daily Mail online, that story on her working in the NHS kitchen was a top page and had over 2000 comments of mostly positive comments.

Tabloids are also a negative thing though, Sophie experienced the brutal side of the tabloids early on in her marriage so maybe she prefers flying under the radar.

It felt weird not attending VE day events today - so I watched a lot of these videos. Brought it to mind that this generation of heroes are now leaving us - and very soon will be gone.

I have read too many people compare their Corona experience of not having French Cheese to war time rationing. WFH is not leaving your home and family to join the Land Army. It puts things into perspective.

Not good news for Edward and Sophie as a sinkhole opens up on their estate. Unsure how the law works here but I presume a geologist and surveyor to see if there is a possibility of it spreading. I remember living on a housing estate when a sink hole in a nearby street caused the whole area to be evacuted and abandoned. It was made into a park , good thing too as it regularly gets sink holes now.

And it couldn't have come at the worst of times! I'm sure it will be fixed though, but might be tricky as I think Bagshot is Grade II listed?

It'll probably get sorted more quickly than usual. Lots of roadworks are going on here - it's far easier to get them done whilst there's so little traffic. But it's a load of hassle. The poor postman!

I thought it was lovely to see Kate and Sophie together in a zoom call to those Australian nurses. They seem to have a nice friendship.
