I like the style of coat but the colour seems too pale for her. It's as if it I should draining the colour from her face.

While Sophie isn't my most favorite Royal I do very much prefer her to Waity and Megs

One of the few things that annoy me about her is when the newspapers go on about her being HM's favourite. And I know this might be paper talk anyway.

Mind you with KM, Camz and now MM, there's not much to choose between them.

So she is probably more liked/tolerated by HM.

^ Sophie had that last article about her Safe Pair of Hands put in the DM right before the engagement announcement.  Now it will be fun to see how she copies Meggles.   When Kate married in, Sophie grew out her hair, wore pony tails, decided to hit hockey pucks, etc.   When Harry was dating Cressida, Sophie put scrunchies in her hair.   What will she choose to copy from Meggles?  Oh, the fun of it all!!    easter-James

Sophie has a real problem not being the 'youngest' Royal woman.  Tongue

^She managed to be over dressed and under dressed at the same time, considering the temperature and event.  I've never seen anyone do that before.  Yep.  Ridiculous is the right word.

^ Well put, can't believe someone manages to be over- and underdressed at the same time! Yikes, what an outfit.

But this is Sophie.   She has always been ridiculous.   She had to do something to draw attention to herself, so she rode with the Queen on Sunday -- hasn't done that in years -- to remind us all that she is the Queen's favorite (as if anyone really cares).   And then she wears that ridiculous outfit yesterday knowing that people will at least comment negatively.  After all, negative attention is better than no attention.

And notice -- yet again! -- that she is not walking with her husband, her daughter or her son.   Nope.  All back there by herself, to try to get attention on herself.

^ I too am sure that she was trying to grab some attention. There are younger (Waity, Eug, Bea) and newer members (Murkle), members who are growing up and stealing limelight (incl Louise!), and those further up the ladder who'll always get some space in the papers (Camz).

Countess of Wessex commissions a terminally ill photographer, 24, to take her new portrait - as he battles cancer caused by a condition that makes his skin blister at the slightest touch

The Countess of Wessex invited a young photographer battling terminal cancer to take her latest portrait, as part of a campaign to raise £500K to find a cure for his condition.

Sophie, 53, invited aspiring photographer James Dunn, 24, from Liverpool who has the skin condition Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), to take her photo at Buckingham Palace last month.

The royal is patron of the charity DEBRA, which supports people suffering from the condition that causes skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch.

James is battling terminal cancer caused by the skin condition, and has lost part of his left arm, but is devoted to raising awareness of the disease.

The Countess said: 'As Royal Patron of the charity DEBRA I was delighted to help James pursue his passion for photography.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

I think Sophie will have HM's favor since she's the least scandal ridden of the recent royal consorts and that counts for something.

^ It counts for a lot. She does her job happily with grace and class. No petulance and weird gesticulating. She knows her stuff.
