Louise was kept out of the spotlight early on because of her eyes; we don't know why James has been so sheltered.  But, yes, it is odd - the dynamics between these siblings.  They don't even behave as though they are acquainted.    blink

I think their parents are trying to make their lives as normal as possible, which is why they don't go out in public very often. The press/public know they are the queen's grandchildren and they will want to bother them with photos.

Maybe they won't be close until they're teens or adults. There is a 4-year age gap and they're not the same gender. Different interests, different friends, etc. dontknow

Agreed. My sister and I differ four years as well, I am the elder one. And we weren't close as children, my mother could hardly get us toegther for the annual Christmas picture.

Now that we are older, we get along much better and even make an annual city trip of 4-5 days together. The first time that happened, my mother almost fell of her chair. And the difference in gender is another hurdle for the Wessex-children that my sister and I didn't have.

Edward and Sophie aren't trying for normalcy for their children any more than Princess Anne did.  Anne's children weren't even "lord" and "lady" as are the Wessex children, and Edward and Sophie have fought tooth and nail to raise their children in the largest private residence of all the royals when advisers preferred that they scale down their lifestyle.  So they don't want to be all that normal.

Plus, Anne's children are different genders, like the Wessex children, and there is a four-year age difference, also like the Wessex children.  But unlike the Wessex children, Peter and Zara appeared to be fond of one another and have a great relationship both as children and now as adults.   

The Wessex children don't appear to have a healthy relationship, in my opinion.  I wonder why?   blink

I agree. They are going in different schools,  if I remember well.

The education from 70" is different from now, in some aspects is better  in other is worst

^^ Just because Peter and Zara were close as kids doesn't mean other siblings with a similar age gap are close. Sometimes, kids find something in common; other times, they prefer to keep to themselves.
Normal for a rich family, not normal for regular people. If they went out together as a family, they would be followed, photos taken, etc. Titles and large homes are part of being upper-class and rich in the UK. They still go to school and have friends, but we don't get to see photos very often. I was responding to why they are sheltered from the public eye.  flower

And once again a family outing and zero photos of the Wessex siblings interacting with one another.  They're not even in a shot together.   He was playing on the slide with the Phillips girls and Louise was with Edward.

Then, everyone except James is in this shot.  Where is he?   Why is he always left out?

They seem to be a happy family. It is good to see two royal families together.

I like Sophie, always have done.  She also appears to have become a firm favourite of HM, which is nice.  A rocky start, but fast learner.  Rather her any day than wasty or fergie.

ITA Now she IS a normal middle class girl unlike waity - no grasping vulgar mother there.  True, she made her mistakes but she learnt from them and moved forward - isn't that one of the things life is - a learning curve?

Yup, agree, for most people, but we must remember the medds are a breed apart, not a breed one would want replicated either.

But without James. Why is James never included?  Very odd.

Yes, he played with the Phillips girls.   Then the Phillips girls, their mother, Sophie, Louise and Edward were all sitting in the grass together.  James is not with them.  He's never with his family.  Only for short periods of time and then, what -- whisked off by the nanny?     huh

He's a 7-year-old boy. Maybe he's a trouble maker at home so they want him to be out in public as little as possible?

The Copycat Countess is at it again.   She's replaying Kate's hockey field photo op while wearing wedges like Kate.   She look ridiculous. 

And speaking of ridiculous . . . can the woman not EVER put her daughter in clothes that fit her?   The blouse is too small and the shoes are hideous.

^ Sophie knows that her days of basking in the Queen's company are numbered.  She is horning in on every photo op she can.      Did you read any comments from the DM article?    Other people (besides me!!) are commenting on Sophie's copying Kate's look and -- not just Kate's hair and clothes -- but even Kate's facial expressions.   She is  blink    blink    blink

 I have respect for your opinion but why does Sophie need for copying Kate's look? Anyway Waity used to copy Diana's look and when she wants to have a different style she fails it.  flower
