  1. She looks fabulous. Not only is the outfit great for the occasion but, her hair and makeup is right on target. They both look at ease and happy.

  3. I very much like the soft color palette of Sophie’s outfit, but the trousers do not flatter her, imo.

  4. P.S. Prince Edward looks very, very spiffy here. Fabulous jacket, tie and shirt combo, demonstrating real sartorial flair!

  6. Quel sympathique couple.. Joli manteau chez Sophie.. Edward a l'air de beaucoup aimer sa veste avec une jolie pochette assortie ; par contre, la cravate ?! Bon et joyeux anniversaire à lui !

  7. Edward wore a similar suit jacket when his daughter was born, wonder if it is the same one, or maybe he likes this pattern. I am not a fan of the jacket pattern, or the mixted pattern shirt, nor the completely different patterned tie. However, he has a nice smile, as does Sophie. Her pants were not the best for her figure, but then they fit the occasion.... JT

  10. Lovely coat, not great pants. The hair looks like what anyone would wear to go to the store. Now, Edward has a bunch of different prints going on... he looks a little like an elderly happy grandpa.

  11. So they're stepping in to fill the Harry/Meg void. Good! I love Sophie, and Edward is quite spiffy and probably a lot of fun out of the spotlight. Lovely clothing, lovely couple.

  12. Love the soft colours on C. Sophie. I think the coat is designed to be worn buttoned up. Worn open like this it sags and loses its shape. Edward looks like a typical country gentleman to me. It’s nice to see them working together. (V.M.)

  13. How refreshing to see a royal couple that supports the UK and keeps a low profile. They truly love each other

  14. Beautiful coat. I admire and respect both of them. Their ability to quietly get on with the job, with minimum of fuss and bother.

  15. I really enjoy seeing Sophie on her engagements, she always seems so lovely interacting with everyone. Plus, Edward seems to be having a good time too. The look like a great couple.

  16. Great coat, at least one size too small. Probably two sized. Terrible pairing with pants. Lovely couple, indeed. Let’s not forget the squeaky start though. Terrible mistake with Edward’s TV show. He learned and did better. But the begging was far from appropriate for them too. Tanya

  17. She seems to be doing a much better work for the Queen than Meghan ever did. She always looks very pleasant.

  18. What a lovely couple. Love Sophie's outfit - a very "safe" choice. Edward reminds me so much of a typical English gentleman.....

  19. Ce manteau d’un vilain beige aurait été plus élégant avec un pull et un pantalon marron,tout simplement.

  20. The colouring of Sophia's outfit is nice, otherwise the pieces don't fit together. This is an unflattering attire. Just like Edwards, mostly nice parts but not a good combo. -Siri

  21. Perhaps they will take on more duties now? I'd like to see more of them working together. Elle

    1. They already have a lot of duties separately, and he is taking on his retired father's patronages since he will eventually become the next Duke of Edinburgh.

  22. Hmmm. Not thrilled by how tight the coat is on her. Probably two sizes, as mentioned above. Also I think it would have been significantly better with boots (and she quite a few beautiful pairs). I would have preferred that.

    Not sure why we constantly need to compare. No two people (never mind two couples) are the same. In fact we should celebrate differences. Not be so overly concerned with them. Chrissy
