  1. Toujours impliquée, Sophie ressemble à n'importe quelle ménagère qui fait ses courses en suivant la liste qu'elle a établie.. J'adore sa simplicité !

  4. I admire the Countess of Wessex for the help she is giving to packing food parcels to help those who cannot help themselves. A light to us all

    1. My favorite among the royal Brits. No need to say anything else about her. Just don't anyone get me started on Harry and Meghan.

  5. She looks great dressed down. Great for her getting involved.

  6. It is wonderful work she is doing, not to be picky but why is she not wearing a mask working around food. I know when we go to the food bank to help, we have to wear a mask the whole time we are there handling food. Just asking, maybe it is different in the UK.

    1. My thoughts exactly. How difficult can it be to wear a mask? Where I am, masks are mandatory. Such a small precaution can make such a big difference.

      As for her fashion, she looks great. I love seeing royals look so down to earth.

    2. I wondered the same.

    3. Unknown 8:27 - None of these people that I can see with Sophie are wearing masks. I do not wear a mask when I go out. And that's all I'll say about this current situation. ~Laurel~

    4. @Laurel You would not be allowed to buy food, get medications, or do any other necessary errand if you lived in my area. Not only must you be masked, stores limit the number of people in stores. Some stores have made the aisles one way to limit exposure. We just had our quarantine extended through May 31, with a few restrictions easing. Masks are not one of them. I would rather mask up than take a chance.

    5. @Anon 3:18am - Hi. We also have limits on the number of customers; there are floor arrows to dutifully follow and the big red spots to stand on, also plexiglass shields for the staff (some of whom have stopped wearing masks). Most of us do not wear masks; I have never done so.

      Some things (golf courses, of course) will be opening next week with some retail & other business to follow. Do not get me started on Covid.

  7. Great to see the practical, down-to-earth Sophie helping another worthwhile initiative. I think of her now as similar to Princess Anne--no fuss, no airs and graces, just getting on with things that need done/publicised/supported.

  8. Is she left-handed? I haven’t noticed that before. Nice pictures. She seems to have a warm personality.

  9. The Countess has been busy behind the scenes helping out in the pandemic, really fantastic. Well done.

  10. I admire her approach to people: she is kind, she does not complain, she is discreet, she does not "dramas" around her. She has learned a lot from some mistakes in her beginnings and this is valuable. She could teach others - how to grow up in a royal role. But I suspect that those who should learn from her would refuse.

  11. She should be wearing a mask. Even if the others don’t. She is the one time expected to set example. Otherwise, obviously great cause! CH
