I forgot to post that on the 5th May, The Earl of Wessex visited Christ's College, Guildford, where he met students who are embarking on their Duke of Edinburgh Award. In 2009, the school was officially opened by Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. Members of staff shared their memories with His Royal Highness when his father opened the school. The Earl was then showed with The Duke of Edinburgh Theatre, before meeting with the cast and crew.

Yes, that's received some coverage in the press today. Times have certainly changed - you certainly can't ever imagine the Queen or the Queen Mother speaking out about the menopause. It's good to see Sophie talking about the taboos that still surround "women's issues".

Major interview in the Telegraph for Edward and Sophie this weekend to mark what would have been Philip's 100th birthday. Edward talks a little about becoming DOE one day:

Quote:
It is a burden that the Earl does not carry lightly – not least when he is the one who will inherit his father’s title, the Duke of Edinburgh, when his eldest brother takes the throne. The Countess recalls the time when, two days after their engagement, Prince Philip popped round to ask his youngest (and, some say, favourite) son if he would be willing to become the next Duke of Edinburgh. ‘We sat there slightly stunned. He literally came straight in and said: “Right. I’d like it very much if you would consider that.”’
Really good interview with their thoughts on the funeral, HM, Oprah who? , COVID, "stepping up" and getting more attention, The DOE Award and it's legacy and their family life, dogs and children.

That's a wonderful detail about how it was Philip who truly wanted to pass his title on and found an unorthodox way to (indirectly) do so and came to ask them only 2 days after their engagement; he clearly didn't want to waste time.

I also like this detail about their own DoE Awards:
Quote:
The Earl completed his gold award in 1986, while the Countess went one stage further in 2016 by cycling 445 miles from the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace, as part of the scheme’s Diamond Challenge. Louise will complete her gold-award expedition next summer, when she has finished her A levels at St Mary’s School in Ascot, while James will embark on his bronze award next year after he turns 14 this December.

Taking part has made Louise more confident, the Earl says. ‘It’s just broadened her horizons. I think she’s probably got a little focused on, especially at the school she is at, just on the academics but…’
The Countess jumps in: ‘She’s loved it, it’s really pushed her into doing things that she’s had to schedule into her routine. She’s quite a committed person anyway. This is the kind of thing that really ticks the boxes for her. But in terms of confidence, it’s given her a huge amount. She’s taken up fencing again as her skill, which she has really loved.’

This is a wonderful interview.

I loved reading the story about Philip talking to Edward about wanting him to have the DoE title. I also enjoyed reading about their passion for the DofE awards and how Louise is doing on hers. Philip is clearly very much missed.

I have to lol regarding their responses to The Interview. Oprah who? Lol what interview? They were never going to really respond. So, I like the humorous deflection.

More seriously, it’s nice that Sophie said that she’d chatted with Harry when he was in London. And that she made a point of noting in the interview that they’d always be family.

I strongly agree with Edward in the following regarding virtual work: it works well when the relationships are established, but the virtual environment doesn’t work well for building relationships. Some things IMO are best done in person.

What a wonderful interview and I absolutely love the photo of them in what appears to be a conservatory. The way Edward is looking at Sophie is beautiful. It’s nice to hear from them and their thoughts. They’re so underrated as a working couple from the family.
