Thanks for the photo and links guys, good to see them. I wish I spoke Bulgarian!

I like the video of them arriving at the President's residence as they climb the stairs Edward goes to hold his hand out for Sophie to assist her up the steps, but she doesn't take it. :(

First time seeing video I didn't noticed that, it was only fraction of a second, it looks like she didn't notice it as well, and she was holding a bag. Don't look too much into it.

On the last video(from my post) they spoke about , that the visit of Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex and his wife Princess Sophie(how lovely sound this) to Bulgaria is on invitation of Bulgarian President Plevneliev.
The visit is, for they to see overview of the progress made ​​by Bulgaria in implementing the strategy for deinstitutionalization , prevention of child abandonment, foster care development, and sharing of the British experience in these spheres ....
Also they say that tomorrow they gonna meet with foster children and scout organization ...

This is almost everything they said

I love it when they say Princess Sophie, even though we know how completely incorrect that title is. I wish she was Princess Sophie...

Thanks Mag! How many languages do you speak?!

This title is absolutely correct for Bulgaria. Only englishspeaking people have such title form as princess Edward.
For example, wife of Grand Duke Vladimir was Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna in Russia. To call her Grand Duchess Vladimir was absolutely incorrect. In english books she is known as Grand Duchess Vladimir.
We see here cultural differences.

Except that Sophie is English and she has never had the title of Princess Sophie since she was not born a British Princess. She is HRH The Countess of Wessex.

It could be argued that neither the English who call Maria Grand Duchess Vladimir, nor the Bulgarians or Russians who call Sophie Princess Sophie are correct, as neither is respecting the actual titles held or used by the individuals in question.

For what it stands, while I have seen many grand duchesses by marriage referred to by their proper titles in English (ie Grand Duchess Maria Pavlovna) I have also seen many princesses by marriage referred to by incorrect titles in English (ie Princess Sophia). I don't believe it's necessarily a case of cultural differences so much as a case of not understanding (or caring) how British titles work, even within the English speaking world.

I love the video of them going around the hospital, Sophie is in her element with all the babies. You could see she was desperate to lift one up! I can imagine her thinking, "Let's take one home!"

"Princess Diana" being the perfect example, although I think this arose because she was already known as "Lady Diana" and so people continued to refer to her as *Title* Diana. In reality, she was no more a princess in her own right than Sophie was before her marriage to Prince Edward; she shared the same rank as her husband.

The video works for me and I do love it when Royals who know each other do the "kiss on the cheeks" greet. I forgot how much I love that Roland Mouret dress! I love tie at the back.
