It's brilliant to see Sophie at the mosque especially as it's Eid today. I'm pretty sure the Shah Jahan is the oldest mosque in the UK? I think Queen Victoria's "Munshi" Abdul Karim was a regular worshipper there when it was first built.

I love that they have a tortoise. That is so cute!

The Sunday Times has published a nice article & interview with the Countess of Wessex.

Some highlights:

On the Sussexes:
"“I just hope they will be happy,” is all Sophie will say now."

On her children:
"“We try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living,” she adds. “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles. They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”'

On the Duke of York & Jeffrey Epstein scandal:
"Her voice drops. “I can’t comment on that,” she says.
It must be awkward, though, I venture.
“I am sorry. You can understand I can’t respond.”"

"Can Sophie, Countess of Wessex, steady the royal ship?" by Christina Lamb, The Sunday Times, June 6, 2020.

Odd that the interview was kept for so longer - I presume corona coverage but it is odd.

The fact that Sophie presumes that her children are royal highnesses does explain why Louise did ride in a carriage at Trooping the Colour - as non-royal highnesses never did (as far as I am aware). So, in terms of their royal participation they are treated the same as Beatrice and Eugenie who have been known as royal highnesses from birth - because although not known as such, they have the same status?!

I hadn’t thought of it like that but you are right - Louise and James are the only non titled royals (aside from fiancés) to have ridden in Trooping the Colour. Zara and Peter have never done it as far as I am aware. I just assumed Louise and James did because they assume their parents status until they turn 18; then they will be in the same position as Peter and Zara. For example, during royal processions Louise and James walk with their parents where as Peter and Zara do not. Peter and Zara even sit after the other HRH’s as this was demonstrated at William and Catherine’s wedding. I guess when Louise turns 18 it will be the same for her followed by James 4 years later.

So guess the theory that Louise and James rode because they’re secret HRH’s isn’t a working theory.

Or Margret's children sneaked into a carriage when no one was looking.

Thanks! Didn't know that. Did any other princess' children ride in the carriage; princess Mary's for example (I guess not, as she had several brothers - unlike princess Margaret who was Elizabeth's only sister).

Sorry for the confusion .

The interviewer went with Sophie to South Sudan - so that was what the original article was meant to be. There might have included a bio piece, but the fact that a sit down interview was not done then is odd. Maybe it was not part of the original brief? If a member of the press is included in the group, the photos and the one on one interview is scheduled then then - so that the article can get to print as close as possible to the engagement.

This interview and photo shot appears to have been done after the trip to Sudan, but we don't know how long after. So I can only think that the original article was pulled so that they could focus on Corona coverage. And then possibly the article was repackaged. Also this is an article for the Sunday Times proper not the magazine section where is ended up.

According to the article the interview took place one week after both women had returned from South Sudan.

I don't know if the Lascelles boys ever did I'm afraid.

"It was so lovely of Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex to visit us last week to thank the volunteer sewing community for their efforts over the past months and to help sew masks and cut scrubs. Thank you so much for visiting!"
