  2. Love the look Sophie and Edward have in 3rd pic, they seem to be each others best friends. Sophie looks mint in first pictures, love the hat. But I would have liked much more if she had real earrings, not just resin and crystal (plastic and glas) ones from Dior.

    1. I wonder what kind of presents she received from the richiest man in the world...

    2. Anja are you me? That was my first thought when I saw these pictures, but I felt a bit impolite to say she may be updating her jewel box.

    3. I remember Edward saying, around the time they were engaged, that Sophie was his best friend, as well as the woman he loved. Seems that it was true. Classic British clothes suit Sophie and she looks good in hats.

    6. Pine; They may be the only really successful marriage among Queen´s children. Happy for them. Also Queen likes Sophie very much.

    7. Charles, Anne and Andrew's marriages were disasters, so anything is better compared to that. Sophie and Edward are on an official tour but they do seem happy together, unlike Charles and Diana's last official tour.

    8. Das war mein erster Gedanke, alle, die dorthin fahren, werden immer reichlich beschenkt. Ich warte noch auf meine Einladung:-)) Modisch: nun ja, ich mag die Auswahl der Dame nicht. Ist mir zu altbacken. Der Hut ist noch das schönste Teil des Outfits.

  4. Sophie looks lovely - I can't really see the dress but I like the top part and I like the hat, I think she wears them well.

  5. Poor Edward is going to have a sunburned pate while Sophie is in the shade under her stylish hat. From what we can see, the skirt seems to be one of those fullish stiff ones that are not very flattering on Sophie but she looks lovely nonetheless.

  6. The white top is too tight and unflattering for her waist with that tied belt.

  7. She looks lovely and happy but am I the only one who thinks she has gained some weight lately?

  8. Sophie looks beautiful: hat, top and skirt. Lovely face and hair-do. She dresses better than Kate and is regal yet approachable. What an asset to the Royal Family!
