I have some lasting passions from my childhood and I know how dear they are to a person. It's so lovely that Lady Louise has one, and shared with her grandfather, no less!

Heavs, thanks for the link.

Apparently Sophie drives as well (presumably not competitively)? I don't think that's as well known as Louise doing it.

Thank you for the link.

Confused. Why is the Times and Valentine Louw rehash dribble from the Daily Express?

The Daily Express article quotes "Ingrid Steward in an interview with The Times" so I think it was the Express who rehashed it from VL?

Times article was published on Friday and this article from the Express was published early Saturday.

ah - Thank you for clearing it up. However really don't expect such a puff piece in the Times.

I really like the Forfar tartan. Is there a hierarchy to tartan - I mean does he have to wear the Balmoral tartan when at Balmoral.

I spent a lot of time trying to find where I have seen the poutfit before only to find myself laughing. There is an old pic of the Queen with her corgis at Balmoral with a similar tartan on, pink shirt, blue blazer and blue socks.

I always wonder where the Royals stay when they do these events. Will they stay overnight with The Queen (and presumably Prince William) at Holyrood?
Or will they travel back home to Bagshot?

I suspect Edward and Sophie are staying at Holyrood, as are the Queen and William.

I assume so, it would be a very long trip and unnecessary travelling if they went back to Bagshot...

Today, July 6, the Countess of Wessex as Patron of sight loss charity the Vision Foundation joined a "group of visually impaired and sighted cyclists for a tandem cycle ride in Bushy Park, West London, to highlight the importance of independent living for blind and partially sighted people and the vital part employment plays in this. The bike ride coincides with the launch of the Vision Foundation's employment report 'See My Skills'":

On the 7th July Sophie attended two events with Alexandra, which is lovely to see.

St Jamesís Palace
Princess Alexandra, Patron, the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, accompanied by The Countess of Wessex, this afternoon opened the new South West Regional Centre, 10 Stillhouse Lane, Bristol, and was received by Her Majestyís Lord-Lieutenant of the County and City of Bristol (Mrs Peaches Golding).

Their Royal Highnesses subsequently visited Windmill Hill City Farm, Philip Street, Bedminster, Bristol.


Lovely to see Princess Alexandra out and about after 10 months of not appearing in the CC other than for Philip's funeral.
