Ed and Soph attended the Sultan of Brunai's Golden Jubilee.    It is only fitting seein' as how it was always alleged that the Sultan -- due to Philip's influence -- sunk millions into Ed's laughable production company.

Sophie's outfit is atrocious.    bored3

Back to basics! Sophie Wessex dons her camouflage gear as she samples a meal from a mess tin during her visit to the British garrison in Brunei with Prince Edward

    Countess of Wessex, 52, was dressed appropriately in a khaki shirt and trousers
    Mother-of-two looked in very high spirits as she swapped her hat for a helmet
    She and Edward watched demonstration by Gurkha soldiers in the jungle
    Pair are in Brunei to attend celebrations in honour of the Sultan's Golden Jubilee

They are on tour in Brunei and I find it hilarious that Sophie gets to wear a tiara, when Waity still doesn't, save for the handful of occasions for state dinners in all these years (they were basically forced to attend). Bill and Waity attended "galas" too whilst on tour, but no (major) jewels for her at all, and here we have Sophie on a tour that's not even really reported on, decked out in finery and with her family order on display  tehe

Waity must be seething. Kate-Horror-Queen
I have no intention to derail this OT about Kate, but one other opportunity she might get to wear a tiara is I believe Xmas, when they bother to spend it with Liz, I have read that they have a formal dinner for Xmas when everyone is dressed to the 9s (white tie dress code), with all baubles dripping and tiaras sparkling. No idea whether true.. And maybe a few more family oriented formal dinners like these happen over the year?

Since Kate always gets brought into the Wessex threads, I'll bite.   I don't think Kate cares a bit about who is wearing a tiara or where they are wearing it.  Kate appears very uncomfortable with the whole royal glamour bit, and so I don't think this is an issue for her.

It's lovely that Sophie Rhys-Jones gets tiaras and orders and got to ride in a car with the queen for a few years.  She sold her soul to get these superficial doo dads.  And no one cares.  Thus, I think it is Sophie who is constantly seething at how little attention the media pays to her because she was supposed to be the second Diana, doggone it!!

As waity was known as the mattress it could be said she sold her body to get where she is.

IMO the reason she appears uncomfortable is because she know she doesn't have the poise or class to to look glamorous she looks stupid, like a little girl playing at dressing up. Expensive dresses and jewels just look like cheap  knock-offs on her

^^ I think too that Sophie is disappointed she wasn't the "new Di", she was thought of greatly as her successor, having lived even in the same apartment complex as Di and bearing even a physical resemblance, right down to the hair style (at the time). Imo Sophie received ugly tiaras, the WInds have vaults full and Fergie even received one that was bought for her and Sophie got dingly and ugly makeshift pieces..

^^^^^ A photo of Sophie -- topless -- hung on the bulletin board at Capitol Radio.   She used her body to get ahead in her PR career.  That photo of her bikini top being pulled down that caused such an outroar when Sophie was engaged to Ed was quite disingenuous as Sophie took her top off often among her friends.    Once she married in to the Royal Family, she put her topless days behind her but then sold Royal Family Secrets to her investors until she was caught out by an undercover reporter.  Stupid woman.

^^^  Yes, indeed, Sophie was quite annoyed to find that the nation did not embrace her as they did Diana Spencer.  She tried and tried and tried.  To no avail.   The best she could come up with was the Queen's handmaiden.

Sophie just doesn't have the sparkle or warmth that Diana had.

I find her cold too.

But in that photo, it is a flattering style on her and she is not cioming across as "mutton dressed as lamb" as she sometimes does when trying to copy WK. In other words, she's not dressing like she is in her 20's and is dressing for her age which flatters her more.
