I have to say that the Cambridges and the Wessexís are stepping up big time, and itís lovely to see.

And they seem to genuinely like each other. #TeamWesBridge

Look at that little boy looking at Edward. He is so proud of that card! Regarding choosing partners wisely: I would say in a family like the BRF, itís important to choose someone who, culturally, understands the Monarchy and it has symbolic meaning to them. We all have cultural bias but how can a non British person really support a monarchy that you donít understand. Of course, as we all know, being British alone is not the only factor in a successful transition to royal life, but it certainly helps.

I think that Prince Albert and Queen Alexandra, also Princess Marina and Prince Philip, are good examples of non-Brits who have contributed greatly to the British monarchy. I'm sure there were more. It's never easy to move from one culture to the other but a strong sense of duty and identification with the values of the new sphere certainly help.

I agree that the Wessex family is a perfect example of a wonderful team spirit. they look rock solid, happy and grateful for their ability to give to others. Edward certainly chose the right partner. I love seeing them together. He's my age, and he looks much happier now than when he was young.

Philip may not have been born in Britain but his mother was (born in Windsor Castle as was her mother). He was also educated in Britain from age 8, except for two terms so he was largely raised as a Brit.

Luvcharles, exactly. P. Philip was as British as any Brit. Marina also spent much time in Britain before being shown the door in Greece. Then spent even more time there after exile. But, in any case, I was referring more to more current times as media in general and social media in particular are so prevalent. Maybe Prince Albert didnít adjust well at all. Who knows.

I think Prince Albert was rather disliked and always considered a bit too German. Until he died of course. Then he was known as perfect Albert who was the reason Victoria always wore black.

I think that, along with the cultural adjustment, there is a whole life adjustment (ie constant media scrutiny), that requires a person of good character and basic common sense to cope with limited support from the family.  Edward chose wisely. Others.....didnít.

Yes, he was a foreigner and an outsider for all of his life - but looking back now Britain was very lucky to have his genius. He was an incredible man though the romance end of things, well, he knew he would be in a position of power as Victoria's husband. I do not believe he loved her like she loved him!

Sophie looks great, as usual! I like the background, nothing too much, nothing that screams "royal", just an ordinary bookcase with cds, dvds (aren't they? ) and the fact that Louise took the video makes the whole thing relatable.
