Today marks the end of Ramadan and the start of Eid celebrations for Muslims across the world. Ramadan has been very different this year, however these challenges have not stopped communities coming together to help those in need.

  2. Most commendable as the Earl and Countess actively and consistently continue to reach out to all with support and assistance. But where are the masks?

    1. The advice in the UK is to leave masks for the carers and medical professionals and for when in unavoidable close proximity to others (like on public transport). They are not necessary if social distancing and good hygiene is practised in situations such as this. This is backed by scientific evidence even if everything else our thoroughly useless government has said isn't.

    2. Not all masks are of medical quality. A lot of people wear washable cloth masks. Any face covering that covers the nose and mouth is recommended in many countries. Masks are thought to do some good, even if they only serve to prevent you from touching your face. Let's be honest here...they can't hurt and can only help. I, for one, am more than happy to take this precaution.

    3. The purpose of wearing non-medical grade masks is to stop the wearer spreading any germs they may have. Anecdotal evidence shows that they don't stop people touching their faces - in fact, I watched several people fiddling with masks they were wearing (some of them wrongly) when I was in the supermarket yesterday. I will be saving my mask for when I have to return to work by using the Tube.
      I think the precautions taken here are just fine. And if they wanted to wear masks also fine. Just seems to me the no mask comments are the new "shaming" fashion backed up by very little hard science.

  3. Wonderful casual outfit on Sophie. I deem the Wessexes the most refreshing and interesting of the British royal couples. Would be lovely to share a dinner with them.

  4. The Royal couple are a real inspiration, they keep a low profile and get on with things in a very dignified manner. They both have great work ethic. They are a real inspiration. The Countess looks lovely the combination of colours looks fabulous.

    1. I so agree, I always love seeing Sophie in particularly as she is such an underrated member of the BRF. Tirelessly working on her causes without fanfare. She looks great here, love the bright colors, they look great on her.
