Sophie touched on this when she made a speech in New Dehli yesterday.

"High Commissioner, Honoured Guests;

This is the third time I have seen this film Life with Sight and each time I see it it makes me cry. My daughter, Louise, was born prematurely and so every time I see anything to do with premature babies it takes me back to those early days, the shock of her early arrival, and then the realisation that she had a sight issue, which we would have to manage."


I can imagine it all comes flooding back for her, even if Louise was never that small.  The noises of the machines beeping is something that I don't think anyone can forget.  I think it's great that Sophie has chosen something which means so much to her.

I don’t know how she maintains her composure- I am tearing up just reading that and I don’t even have kids.

Ive said it before, and I'll say it again, Sophie is a wonderful asset to the royal family, and I only wish she was more senior within it. When she attends an engagement, the focus is on the engagement or the charity, not on what she wore or whether she closed a car door herself or not. Camila is similar in my opinion too, those two ladies would be a great double act. Sophie is one of the few married ins who didn't come with scandal or drama, she fitted in very well and continues to do so, and she always seems so earnest and caring.

The only scandals around Sophie came early on - the fake sheikh (she and Princess Michael were also caught out by this 'reporter' who was finally unmasked after he caught out Fergie) and the non-payment of creditors by her PR company.

Since then she hasn't put a foot wrong.

He must have been pretty convincing because I don’t think Sophie is stupid.

Does Edward do much? I never see much about his charities

Edward does a lot with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Last year he was the third hardest worker behind Anne and Charles although normally he is 4th behind Andrew as well. Last year he had an extra campaign with DoE in which he visited every Real Tennis Court in the world to raise money for the DoE.

When Charles and Camilla came to Australia last year for the Commonwealth Games they garnered a bit of coverage. Edward was here for the end of the games and for around 2 weeks in total but the only coverage was for the closing of the games themselves. Andrew gets even less coverage but they both do a lot of engagements.
