I see that there is several petitions this morning and an official campaign to request that HM The Queen make The Earl of Wessex the Governor General of Canada. Might be interesting if this becomes an official appeal. Unsure how that works - or if it even can be done.
This has happened before but seems to have gained momentum this time around. Has Edward and Sophie's popularity increased in Canada - or is it just Canada?

But then there would be even fewer working royals at home if they can start to do more duites.

What a lovely award to give and I’m sure it was well received.

What I do love about all these video calls the family are doing, is getting to see the background photos.

I wish we could see the black and white one from William and Catherine’s wedding in full as it looks lovely. It’s the one that’s to the bottom right of the photo of Sophie.

Over the coming weeks, HRH will be video calling in to charities and key workers across all regions of Yorkshire, to hear about their work, and to thank them for all that they do."

"The Countess of Wessex started volunteering for the St John Ambulance at a vaccination centre in London. A royal source says: “She’ll be going back.” The Royal Family has swung behind the vaccination rollout programme."

Good for her, Sophie seems to have been doing a lot of fairly quiet volunteer work during the pandemic.

I am glad that Sophie is able to volunteer at St John's Ambulance [...] I would like to know what Edward is up to [...]
It is possible that Edward feels that volunteer work should not be used for PR purposes, or it is not glamourous enough to mention as PR, which might be the case.

I assume that he probably wants to keep his volunteering private and that's why nothing has been said even off hand.

That said on a completely separate if he was doing "glamourous" volunteering it probably wouldn't generate a huge amount of interest because they in general don't. But they keep on doing their jobs.

A very worthy project. I love the idea of giving people a plant to grow, it has all sorts of positive benefits.

I like Prince Edward's tartan mask.
