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!

Yes the house and grounds are both Grade II listed.

The Countess of Wessex spent the morning volunteering for ‘Nourish our Nurses’ on Tuesday 12th May to mark International Nurses Day. The Countess joined the small team of 16 volunteers to pack 200 bags of nourishment and helped deliver to NHS Nurses at St Peter’s Hospital

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.

Edward and Sophie gave an interview for the Royal Windsor Horse Show yesterday. They’re so funny together.

Lovely interview - possibly the most relaxed in an interview I have ever seen Edward. He slipped and called the Duke of Edinburgh "my father", released the slip and didn't continue the story - would actually love to know why he loved watching the DOE carriage driving.

Subtle reminder that Louise would have been writing her GCSE at the moment. Didn't know she is currently Junior Champion.

Edward laugh at the end was rather odd.
Watched a bit of pony club myself and it was very funny.

I’m also loving Sophie’s “lockdown hair”. She is definitely the talker in the relationship and Edward just lets her do it. Such a lovely interview. I wish all the royal family did this more.

Perhaps it's no bad thing that Louise and her family are isolating; since even without Coronavirus it seems that she'd have been too busy with her studies to focus a lot on carriage riding. I hope she does well in her exams, this must be an even more stressful time to be doing them.

Unfortunately the GCSE were cancelled - she never got to write them. She will be passed to the next grade on aggregate marks.

Yep; though IIRC many students still studied for them in the first half of lockdown when things were still uncertain.
