I think it depends on the situation. They can do appearances if there is a big enough budget, booming economy, etc. But as it is right now, people are struggling, budgets will have to be cut... fewer working royals, and the ones they do keep will have to stay busy to make it worth the money.

With the way Sophie led the Royals out of Church, and not way behind and at her husband's side, I do feel she would have like to have been the Royal Consort of PC. Her ego demands it I feel.

And maybe it should have been Beatrice as a Blood Princess who should have escorted PP in HM's absence.

And here is ol' Soph on New Year's, riding in the car with Philip, absolutely reveling in the fact that she is the senior royal woman there.  No queen, no Camilla, no Kate.  What an opportunist, looking for ways to draw attention to herself.   Notice that her makeup appears to have been applied with a trowel.   At least three inches thick.   She just leaves her husband and daughter to fend for themselves (and where is her son?), and she grabs onto a preeminent spot for herself.  I think Philip would not have minded riding in the car by himself.  Or even noticed.  Then Sophie could have been by her husband's side and not Elizabeth's husband's side.

She certainly looks smug and content. Whenever Upchuck takes over, she will be in for a rude awakening.

I hope Charles gets her in line and makes her pay for mouthing off to him about not having a Duchy of Cornwall to pay for her living preferences.

Funny how these 'down to earth' types go all out when it comes to trying to take over and push themselves way out of their league. Kate and Sophie were supposed to know their place and be well behaved, but each goes out of their way to upstage the Sovereign and Prince Charles. Kate had the habit of walking in front of HM at a handful of appearances and certainly Sophie has in her many ways been determined to live it up as much as possible. Neither know their place and both refuse to get it into their thick heads that it's not their place to mouth off to, or about, the Heir. I look forward to karma slapping her straight.

I am certain that Sophie loves the fact that PP is retiring; now she can angle herself more towards being at HM's side more and more often.

You know it, KF.   Sophie is always looking for the angle to push herself forward.   I don't think she understands that she is not in line to be queen.  So, I think we are in for some hilarity ahead courtesy of Soph's delusions of glory.   easter-bunny

Oh, she will love that!  Preening for the cameras while pretending she doesn't know they are there!   Smugly giving off the vibe, "I'm the Queen's chosen one, I am!"    LOL!   easter-James

I think she likes to go alone and pretend she's a royal in her own right and not married to a blithering dolt to get all she has.

Sophie is full of herself but she does behave and knows how to act. It will come as quite a shock when Chucky sends her and Edds packing someday

When she mouthed off to Charles she clearly showed she had no idea how to act. Charles is the Heir and mouthing off about not having income from a duchy is one thing that has certainly shown she has no concept of her real place in the hierarchy.

He had other engagements in the UK.

This is regarded as a 'private event' and so official duties in the UK or elsewhere on behalf of HM the Queen and the British government is seen as more important - hence Charles and Camilla in Ireland while many others also have pre-arranged engagements in the UK.

Different countries - different priorities - different views on precedence as well.

In the UK for instance the wife of the Queen's son has precedence over the grandson and granddaughter-in-law of the Queen even if said grandson and wife are higher in the line of succession. Precedence and line of succession are seen as two different things in the UK so although we may see the idea of sending Sophie as an insult the UK may not do so as they are seeing Sophie as the third highest lady in the land - behind the Queen and Camilla (who is in Ireland with her husband) - while to many outsiders it seems they are only sending the wife of the 9th in the line of succession.

Can I ask why are we dredging up Sophie´s misdemeanours from 16 years ago?  That article was originally printed 8 April 2001.  She has worked hard to put it behind her, and HM helped her along the way.  The scandal was then, the rf appear to have helped her move forward and become a working member of the rf and good friends with HM.  Why does she need to be "shamed" time and again, not really fair to her IMO.  She faced it, got on with it and has come through at the other end.  It seems very unkind to me that she gets it thrown up at her again.
