Does anyone have any recent links to or photos of the Earl and Countess? I know they don't allow shots of Louise, for the most part, and understand why, but I rarely see shots of them, especially here in the States....:mad:
hey did you see the ones on the last thread. well can you say recent? little time ago when they were on holidays but that are one of the rarely ones with their little girlie! i think there weren't newer ones were they?
Does anyone know where I could find photos or articles of Edward's visit to Luxembourg?

Me too I consider the dress to be a bit strange ;), I think she already wore it once, but Sophie looks wonderful nevertheless. It's always nice to see Sophie and Edward together with Prince Albert. Thanks a lot for the pics!

i think she wears quite strange things to all of the last three activities. mh she should think about her style ;) but okay she s beautiful normally. :) thank you all for the new pics!
Both Edward and Sophie looked happy.Hopefully so does Louise. But it's right that the Countess's dress is not really nice, she could have worn better than that.
Article from HELLO
Sophie Wessex discovered the welcome was every bit as warm as the weather when she paid a visit to the French Riviera this week. The Countess was greeted by a large group of flag-waving royal fans when she and her husband Prince Edward arrived to kick off a festival celebrating cultural links between Wales and France.....

I think I like Sophie's hair the way it is now compared to when she had it longer!
Sophie looks great in red, but that unflattering sheer dress does nothing for her. It needs to be burned!:cool: In contrast the red floral shirt with the skirt looks very nice, feminine, and appropriate.
Edward looks like a 50/50 split between his Mother and Father.

I agree. The sheer panel just don't offer any support in the midriff. It's quite obvious in the photo with Prince Albert greeting her.
In october the Earl and Countess go to South Africa and in november Canada hopefully we will get to see some pictures.
I think Sophie will be going solo in November to Canada. The visit seems to concentrate on Sophie's charities, especially those in Toronto.
Earl and Countess of Wessex visit to Kenya,South Africa Oct.7 to October 25,2006

i read Earl and Countess of Wessexes's websites says the couples will gone to Africa on October 7-25 for visit include Duke of Edinburgh's awards and lots of mores.

Prince Edward will gone on October 7th and Countess of Wessex will be there also meet him but im not sure will bring their daughter or not they will staying with nanny at home.

please post pictures of Wessexes couples in Kenya and South Africa also
I have always really liked Sophie but I have to agree that whatever advise she is getting about her wardrobe it is not the best and I am afraid that she is looking extremely matronly.IMO. The clothes she wore in Canada were just badly fitting especially the cream suit all in all not good and I do think she should dispose of that dreadful red sheer thing HORRID.I am really diappointed in her choices because I like her a great deal.
I have to agree her clothes and fashion sense are not great. She needs help she could dress more stylish and more her age. Maybe if she used well known designers that would help.

where are the hats???? i miss the days of diana and fergie wearing there hats when the went overseas.:sad:
