I somewhat like them, Eddie is such a sweet little man, the most peculiar mix of humble and grandeur. You know when he says that they often stroll thru the park and allow the people to gawk at them, because it gives the people so much pleasure, he absolutely believes that. Funnily enough he is most humble about it too. Anyway, I found him really pleasant. (pun intended!)
Anyway, whatever faced with Willa and Kate, the Wessex are on the fast track to becoming my most favourite younger gen couple.... Huh?

I have disliked that ridiculous cow since that whole fake Sheik thing.  She showed her true colours then and even though the RF managed to rein her in, I doubt her base character has changed.  And what kind of stupid woman feels the need to make public declarations that her husband is not gay.  It doesn't matter if Edward is gay or not, but the woman doth protest too much.

Oh, those infamous fake Sheik 'interviews'. I wish they were available online somewhere - must have been a good show.  

I have still no real opinion about Sophie, but I really dislike Edward. I've recently watched some interviews and he appears so arrogant and stupid, especially when he was younger. Plus, he's probably the most useless member of the BRF.

Sophie obviously isn't stupid, though.  She has a very nice life, with all the royal perks, without having to do very much.  And, she has gone out of her way to make a friend of her mother-in-law, and charm her father-in-law by all accounts.  A wise move.

QEII was relieved to have her as a daughter in law, she said in private. She's the only one that they both like, Prince Philip and QEII, and they knew since the beggining that she'll never be a walking disaster and danger like Diana or Sarah Ferguson. She's not hysterical, not a MeDiana, she likes horses and dogs and has the good taste to not bother the BRF.

Yes.  I think Sophie knew only too well from the very beginning that if she made the same mistakes as Fergie and Diana she wouldn't last long.  So, apart from the disasterous fake sheik incident she has fitted the mould.  She likes her current life and position too much to be a former wife and daughter-in-law...

Edward always seemed like a twit; hopefully Sophie changed him? Little Louise looks just like her Aunt Anne

I know very little of her but IMO she always had a nice smile. I find her pretty in a normal not-over-the-top way.

Sophie's not precious and self-centred, which is different from most royal wives. 
However I do look at her and think 'oh dear - is that where my taxes go ...' . 

Which I guess is better than my looking at the others and thinking 'oh for god's sake, bring on the revolution - I cannot believe that I worl as hard as I do for my taxes to fund this idiot moron'....

Hm, well let's see stalked Prince Edward did everything to meet him and once she did posed hanging all over him first day they met (now I know why Charlene Wittstock is hanging out with her).

"Someone" leaks to the press this might be the one for Edward! The guilt or imagined interest works and they sort of see each other at some events he then seems to dump her. She is seen in lots of angry looking photos horrified when people ask if she's been dumped. Princess Diana disgusted by how SW is desperately trying to look like her makes her cry at least once in public. Again "Someone" leaks more crap about the poor jilted thing.

They are "back together"! After I don't know some years of this tepid "romance" "Someone" leaks they are "getting married"! A few times. Finally it is announced they are actually marrying. The same icky, smug, clingy, creepy little story we are hearing with all these Princes. She gets married in what looks like a wrinkled nightgown and makes all the royal women including the queen wear dancehall girl type feathers on their heads. It is nice to see the royal men walking together to the church/chapel though.

Next SW has kids, the girl looks like Anne (they both seem to have something very wrong with their eyes though. Hope they can fix that before they get older?) has trouble getting pregnant but so do a lot of other women, he does not have to produce an heir, so why? Gets sympathy for that.

Messes up very badly financially while living in a house that looks to dwarf Buckingham Palace. Apparently they were offered Frogmore House (which is a much more befitting size and is quite pretty) but turn it down.

She accomplishes...Huh?? She is so down to earth that she needs a honking mansion...Huh?? She is so nice that she turns down the royal autograph collector who all the royals have given one too, and sort of agressively warns him not to contact her again...Huh?? She is so low key that pictures of her boobs from a skiing trip are printed in papers the day before the wedding...Huh?? Hm, I see why she is the Queen's favorite...?

To end I think that Prince Edward had a boyish crush on Diana, SW keyed in on this and a 'la Charlene W, played that up until the naive Prince Edward thought wow I could marry the next Diana!!! If Diana was still alive she would have run her out of England at least, they would not be married, there would not be a whisper of her name on this board.

Sorry to any true fans of this person but just because she is boring, does a lapdog act, and doesn't make headlines doesn't make her good.
