Both photos are lovely of the Countess, wearing the robes and signing her photo. Sophie is one of my favorite members of the British Royal Family.

A glowing article on Lady Louise after the DOE tribute, talking about the possibility of her as the "Monarchy's secret weapon". Whilst I doubt she's going to do royal duties it's interesting and talks about the potential for her to use HRH Princess.

I doubt Louise will be taken up royal duties ever. I understand that that Wessex's are looking for gap year options. As I understand it Louise might the be the first royal to have a complete gap year in the UK. It does make sense to volunteer with St. John's or a food bank for the year after all. And I think the Wessexs are keen to avoid the year of expensive holiday that plagued the York sisters as well.

Lovely article on Louise.

I rather doubt she’ll be a working royal.

It's interesting how it states the Queen allowed her to use Philip's ponies and carriages out of favor rather than Philip having left them to her.

I think the odds are not in favor of Louise picking up her title and joining the Firm, but it is quite the expedition, and not too many people have the choice to become a princess.

Does she have to make the decision the day she turns 18, or just simply at some reasonable point after that? Anybody know?

I don't know. As far as I'm aware, royal watchers only became aware of Louise's choice when Sophie talked about it for the first time in an interview a couple of years ago. Up until then it was assumed the decision had been made for them forever.

I doubt she'll decide to become HRH Princess Louise for many different reasons and even if she did then she wouldn't become a working royal. But it is really nice that she's received some positive press for her memories of her grandfather.

Agreed - it took all of us by surprise. I think the only people who are making a big deal of it is the DM.

Interesting engagement, the end of an era. Edward looks very smart in his uniform.

As the article says, figures show that around 900,000 women in the UK have left their jobs because they struggled to manage menopause symptoms at work and got no support from employers. Well done to Sophie for drawing attention to this important issue. It wasn't the done thing for women of the Queen's generation, or even women of Princess Anne's age, to speak about about "women's problems", but royal patronage always brings attention, and hopefully this will raise the profile of the issue.
